The digital procurement process with EASY Procurement
The company procurement process includes all steps which serve to supply the company with necessary resources. In short, a comparatively detailed process which involves several departments – often across locations and more often still paper-based. As a result, a lack of transparency frequently obscures the procurement process, resulting in many other phenomena, such as maverick buying.
