Supply Chain Management Procurement Operations

Most businesses are reliant on procurement to facilitate their day to day operations. Procurement refers to the process by which the required materials, products or resources are obtained, in order to be processed, stored or passed on to the customer. Procurement efficiency is determined by a number of key contributory factors – all of which have a marked effect on the wider business. Minimising expenses and maximising revenues often begins with strategic procurement of the required resources. Regardless of the size or type of the business, optimised procurement operations can be uniquely advantageous.
