Staples whitepaper series
Procurement in Focus Whitepaper
Procurement professionals are now discovering how they can build strategic, dynamic relationships with suppliers – relationships that are based on much more than price alone.
It's a two-way street
Procurement professionals place great value on the willingness of suppliers to be partners, and really get to know their business. This understanding means they can pre-empt problems and identify innovative solutions.
How to unlock the power of strategic supplier partnerships
Adopt the right approach
We know that driving costs out of the business is a key priority for you. But, savvy procurement professionals know that their business function is no longer achieving this solely through grinding down suppliers for the cheapest possible price.
Procurement professionals are now discovering how they can build strategic, dynamic relationships with suppliers – relationships that are based on much more than price alone. Doing so will help gain the key to the innovation that businesses now expect from their suppliers and, with that, a strong competitive advantage.
We’ve developed the whitepaper to help procurement professionals like yourself discover what dynamic strategic supplier relationships look like, and how you can seize the opportunity to add ongoing value to your organisation.
