Procurement leaders, accelerate your journey now to gain efficiency toward today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities
Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and procurement leaders face immense pressure to create value. Given ongoing uncertainty and recession risk, every CPO is working hard to drive cost savings in the short term. After all, economic downturns typically open the door for negotiating better terms with suppliers – but only if procurement teams execute with speed and confidence.
Beyond short-term negotiations, CPOs have other opportunities to drive cost efficiency across spend categories and business processes. The key is identifying the right levers – and knowing how and when to pull them. With this, procurement leaders can operate more efficiently and profitably under virtually any conditions.
Where to start? To drive real margin gains, CPOs have key questions to tackle such as: – Where is there “leakage” in my current procurement lifecycle? Where could my enterprise implement technology to unlock cost savings? How is my outsourcing strategy helping (or hindering) procurement efficiency? How can I strengthen strategic alignment with the business – and partnership with the CFO – to boost performance.
KPMG helps some of the world's leading procurement professionals make efficiency and margin gains that ignite sustained growth. At every step, we help procurement leaders make decisions with precision and confidence.
When we started working with KPMG our focus was on launching a digital platform that would enable standardized processes, reduce inefficiencies and eliminate redundant systems.
