Procurement functions form an integral part of any organization. They impact the cost of final products and comprise a significant portion of an organizations' cost. Organizations, therefore, must know cost-saving strategies that can help them gain a competitive edge in the marketplace. Digital procurement eliminates redundant procurement steps and increases the procurement process efficiency, thereby optimizing the procurement cost.
At SpendEdge, we understand that reducing the purchasing price, securing supplies, minimizing warehousing costs, and maintaining quality guidelines is imperative for organizations to stay ahead of the curve. And to help you achieve such objectives, we have highlighted top trends in digital procurement.
Key Trends in Digital Procurement
Automation in procurement
The procurement function has evolved in the last few years. With automation technologies such as source-to-settle processes, procure-to-pay, e-procurement, and contract management even non-procurement professionals can handle the process and help procurement professionals to utilize their time in devising procurement strategies. Organizations can automate sourcing, procuring, and invoicing processes.
