New Whitepaper for Download: Intelligence Driven Category Sourcing
Procurement’s desire to be proactive is often thwarted by the fact that project-level specifications and requirements are not available in advance. This assumes that supplier discovery must be done at a detailed level, when moving forward on a broader category level should be the actual goal. By identifying a group of suppliers for each category in advance, procurement can help the business choose between them once the detailed requirements are available for each sourcing project.
In this whitepaper, sponsored by Vortal, we will advocate for managing supplier discovery and pre-qualification out ahead of the start of sourcing efforts.
