Netfira e-Book: Smart purchasing, smart buyers

How intelligent automation tools and innovative technologies can optimize operational purchasing.


In 2020, purchasing departments mostly do not make use of the latest technology and are characterised by an old-fashioned way of working. Mountains of paper and a lot of manual, time-consuming and error-prone activities determine everyday working life. Procurement lags behind digitisation even though digital processes are the basic prerequisite for remaining competitive and future proof. The daily tasks of modern buyers do not yet correspond to our technological age. Boring and repetitive activities, such as comparing data, prevent buyers from devoting themselves to the real value-adding tasks. The demands on purchasing in a digitally connected world, however, are increasing. Efficient and data-supported business processes are the basis for purchasing to prove itself as a resilient partner along the
value chain. Purchasing must become more professional and modern. This can be achieved with smart automation solutions and innovative technologies.
