Given the recent dramatic global economic downturn, an indirect procurement outsourcing initiative will position businesses to ride the wave of recession and create a strategic competitive advantage through sustained cost savings and increased cash on hand. Discovering the optimal mix of technology and subject matter expertise can transform a business into a best-in-class procurement organization. Done properly, a mid-sized enterprise can outsource its indirect procurement function in as few as two to three months, reduce their operating expenses and better manage the working capital, while harnessing the proven power and flexibility of an enterprise-wide software solution with no capital expenditure.
