It has been almost a year since the Coronavirus pandemic was first detected. Now, the COVID-19 pandemic has turned our lives upside down and left industries, dislocated. The pandemic has created unprecedented challenges across industries and recovering from it will be a rocky road. The looming question is – What is the future of procurement post-COVID-19?
However, it is upon us how we let this affect us in the long run. The world is moving on and finding ways around the pandemic situation. Economies are opening and the world is regaining its pace slowly but steadily. While the danger still looms upon us and the fate of the vaccine is uncertain, it is time we look at the future of procurement and move cautiously.
If we are to be pragmatic, digitally led steps towards procurement and working together towards boosting employee confidence is the way to go.What next?
Supply chain and procurement have been one of the worst affected since the pandemic began. The supply chain industry has had to evolve rapidly in a noticeably short time. The pandemic has severely disrupted the procurement processes and supply chains globally.
Travel restrictions were announced overnight by countries and suppliers overseas could not fulfil orders, bringing businesses to a standstill.
Companies all over the world have had to scramble to fulfil urgent demands by their customers, carry out business operations smoothly and deal with suppliers and their teams – all at the same time.
While all of us are struggling to find our way and making it work, we need to start somewhere. Here are some key areas procurement can pay attention to while tackling the bigger problems:
Focus on building and retaining supplier relationships
Avoid reliance on limited suppliers / avoid having limited options
Focus on risk management now more than ever
Highlight the importance of innovation
Spend smartly and reserve for future growth strategies
All the points we discussed will be successful only when you have a digital procurement software that is powerful enough to handle these tasks efficiently. Choosing the right software which is fit for your organization’s needs is of utmost importance at this stage.
