As an increasing number of CEOs hold “cost reduction’ as a key strategic initiative in 2016, smarter procurement practices are playing a critical role to help organizations achieve immediate savings. At the same time, department heads are taking a more disciplined and data-driven approach to their individual spend management.
Innovative online systems like cloud software and managed services platforms are taking the place of more traditional procurement models, streamlining business processes virtually overnight.
