Activate the relationships with your suppliers

For the average business, supplier expenditure represents 70% of revenue. Suppliers are an increasing source of innovation, growth, and productivity as well as a potential source of risk. However, if left unmanaged, relationships can drift which is why CPOs are increasingly turning to supplier management and collaboration as a core activity in delivering business strategy. That is why we recommended investing in your procurement supplier relationship management now before it is too late.
