Procurement as a Service

In a constantly changing world, the variable components of managing a global enterprise, keep getting more complex. The inevitable digitisation of the workplace and processes, with an increasingly distributed and remote workforce, has only added to the complexity. Consolidation and standardisation of sourcing and partner management can tie all of these components together, seamlessly, to provide the impetus required to achieve business-critical goals and objectives. Thus, strategically managing globally dispersed partners and contracts for procurement of IT assets and devices can make a world of difference to the risk management, efficiency and cost optimisation for an organisation. Replacing traditional procurement models with strategic sourcing and supplier management strategies can prevent up to 20% of Annual Contract Value erosion1 and result in tangible cost savings of upto 10%1.
