New Survey Reveals Companies Prioritizing Procurement Digitalization to Gain Competitive Advantage
A new survey released today reveals that 90% of global procurement leaders are urgently transforming their operating models and processes to better meet the challenges of today’s volatile, uncertain business world. Conducted by digital procurement consultancy ProcureTech and Globality, the technology company behind the leading AI-powered Platform for sourcing services, the survey gathered insights from more than 170 leaders around the world across all business sectors and company sizes.
The findings highlight that digital transformation will be a top priority for the next three years as global organizations adopt innovative, new technologies that enable them to pivot quickly and react to rising costs from both inflation and supply chain disruptions.
The survey also reveals that the new-look procurement model will be characterized by digital operating processes that reduce costs, inject agility and resilience, increase business value, and enable companies to do more with less as they actively seek ways to reduce costs, gain efficiencies, and improve their bottom line.
Key findings from the survey include:
- 90% of companies expect a relative or significant change in their procurement operating model over the next three years to build more agility and resilience.
- 87% are prioritizing building digital and data teams to gain predictive insights, deploy new technologies, and react more quickly to future disruption and economic change.
- 81% of procurement leaders believe there still needs to be more support from within their businesses to enable this crucial digital transformation.
- 50% of organizations aim to move to a business procurement-centric organization, acting as advisors and business partners rather than executing routine processes.
The economic impact of the global pandemic, inflation, and the war in Ukraine has accelerated procurement’s transformation from a transactional function to a key enabler of business growth with multiple new objectives of agility, transparency, resilience, collaboration, and social impact.
“Procurement has a unique opportunity to lead company performance during these unpredictable times, building vital agility and resilience into supply chains and value chains,” said Globality Chief Revenue Officer Keith Hausmann. “Utilizing innovative digital technology means enterprises no longer have to rely on suppliers in a single location or even a single country, minimizing operational and geopolitical risks while also generating immediate cost savings.”
The survey shows that global procurement leaders understand the crucial role they can play in futureproofing their organizations and positioning them to be able to react more quickly and effectively to meet future unexpected geopolitical disruptions.
“Procurement leaders are looking further ahead,” said Lance Younger, CEO of ProcureTech. “They are creating ecosystems of solutions, anticipating the adoption of new technologies, driving digital-first delivery across the supply chain, and embedding agility in preparation for future changes.”
