Digitalising procurement: where are we heading?

The digitalisation of procurement is an ongoing effort. We are constantly seeking to improve our tools and systems to:

  • Simplify the work being done by buyers, stakeholders and suppliers.
  • Offering user friendly systems to everyone.
  • Aggregating reliable data from multiple sources into a single place
  • Providing more insights on sustainability, risks and market intelligence
  • Enabling effective collaborative decision making

In this webinar, we will have two guests who worked in Procurement and decided to start a company. We will exchange with them on the points above and we will discuss their experience.
