Feb 5, 2019

With cost reduction initiatives becoming a top priority in 2019, most stakeholders have started to scrutinize expenditures more carefully. They are finding ways to better manage costs and expenses. According to a recent study, companies waste as much as 30% of their total expenditures. These expenditures are deemed wasteful as they add no value to the customers or companies. Therefore, it becomes imperative for businesses to have an effective procurement system in place so that they can cut the right costs through strategic reductions that don’t impede their ability to remain competitive in their respective marketplace. Strategic procurement can impact the company’s bottom line, but not every business possesses the resources and expertise to optimize their procurement capabilities.
