Digital Procurement Survey

4th Edition

Strategic priorities in purchasing are cost reduction, risk management and further digitalisation

In times of supply bottlenecks, rising commodity prices and growing inflation, procurement departments around the globe are focusing on the essentials: Reducing costs and managing risks.

As the pandemic subsides, however, the digitalisation of procurement is once again coming into focus. Companies are willing to invest a lot of money to make the idea of digital procurement a reality. The planned investments are to flow primarily into digital source-to-contract (S2C) and procure-to-pay (P2P) solutions.
