Historically, many businesses have done procurement in a typical and demand-based method. Today, with supply chain interruptions and the need to have products and services in a timely and more efficient manner the old way just doesn’t work.
Simply put, services procurement is a process for buying and managing complex service categories and just like procuring physical goods or services may seem less centralized within an organization or business. Today your business has become to rely on a more complex method to meet your immediate demand.
Most importantly, procurement involves budgeting, evaluating, and engaging project-based purchases and understanding the difference between the right talent, consultants, and services from third-party suppliers.
Bottom line, managers will seek out the path of least resistance. Ensure enforcement of guidelines, policies, and procedures by defining clear processes that are facilitated by technology that is designed to support services procurement.
