Highlighting the essence of procurement and supply chain units in every organisation, the Chief Executive Officer for Instinctwave, Mr. Akin Naphtal, said without robust procurement and supply chain strategies it would be impossible for most business operations to function. Being indispensable business catalysts, supply chain processes have evolved at a rapid pace over the last few decades.
According to him, organisations across all industries depend on the expertise of procurement management in seeking out and managing external supplier relationships to ensure the needed items are acquired at the best possible cost. Procurement management has a direct impact on an organisation’s bottom line and strategic business operations; hence, their outstanding contributions to the industry must not go unnoticed.
