KPMG’s Americas Procurement Leader Knows Procurement Progression
How Does Your Company Harness the Power of US Procurement Technology?
As this new year begins, we are not only looking to the future and our goals for 2017, but also recognizing the incredible leaps and bounds we made as a company and as an industry.
KPMG’s Procurement and Operations in the Americas Practice Leader, Samir Khushalani, recognizes how far procurement has come, too.
Explaining how ineffective procurement once was, he said:
“Such implementations could take years, especially if you were dealing with global enterprises. And it could cost you millions and — I kid you not — even billions of dollars to deploy these huge systems. So, obviously, that becomes a huge source of friction.”
He went on to say that procurement requires much more than just strategic sourcing, and things like supplier relationships can be a real “competitive differentiator.”
Pointing out the effect of technological advancements, Khushalani notes that systems are much easier to deploy, support and use.
