A pressing issue

Procurement teams across the globe remain under persistent pressure to search and onboard authentic vendors to ensure operational efficiency. An oversight on the procurement front can severely disrupt an organization’s supply chain and dent its reputation on a global scale.

Owing to unreliable data sources, emerging markets are marred by hurdles related to data-driven decision-making, attaining cost efficiency, and management of procurement risk. Adding to the woes of companies, supplier verification and necessary due diligence pose daunting challenges and hinder smooth procurement management.

Companies experience roadblocks while ascertaining end-to-end efficiency in procurement operations and optimizing supplier relationships.

Another major challenge that companies face pertains to vendor screening, prior to their onboarding process.
