Procurement teams form the core of the business strategy in every company. Among other tasks, officials in the procurement departments are tasked to achieve optimization of supply chains of their respective organizations.  Given their crucial role, they are always on the lookout for alternative suppliers to reduce supply chain risks and effectively deal with disruptions.

Additionally, procurement departments face troubles in finding trusted suppliers, performing due diligence, and improving cost efficiency.
