About the survey
The survey examines how 225 senior procurement professionals from across the globe view the digital procurement landscape and its impact on their organisation. Key findings include:
- Companies believe that a key benefit of technology is allowing more data-driven decision-making in procurement
- The biggest barriers to harnessing the power of technology is a lack of talent and low levels of supplier support in ensuring new technology and solutions work
- Rather than investing in new technologies, companies want to make better use of existing technologies
