Procurement Management

Challenges of the Procurement Process

Managing procurement processes and working with suppliers can create conflicting business objectives, including cost reduction, deployment of new products and market innovations, and reduction of risk. As the complexity of procurement tasks increases for most organizations, a large part of all business IT spending happens without the appropriate strategies for governance and oversight. This leaves companies overspending on procurement by an average of 20–25% for the services needed to run and grow their businesses. Maximum spend discipline comes from having ironclad purchasing policies and practices across the business and real-time analytics to know when and where to optimize the procurement process.

There are several issues preventing companies from capitalizing on potential savings, including:

  •   Lack of true spend visibility across departments
  •   Components of the procurement process aren’t integrated or automated
  •   Lack of outcome-based end-to-end procurement processes
  •   Inadequate supplier management
  •   Expensive purchasing outside of contracts
  •   Low contract compliance
  •   Ineffective negotiations
