In it for the long haul
Procurement is one of the most critical functions of any business. Any disruption to the smooth and continuous flow of goods, materials and services can bring a business to a standstill. Supplier Management isn’t just about finding the best price for a contract – it is about ensuring that a contract can be delivered in time and on budget.
It isn’t about ticking boxes.
