Gartner reports

In times of unprecedented supply chain disruption, daunting sustainability challenges, and rapidly changing consumer demands, procurement is tasked with navigating an increasingly complex business landscape to deliver on key business goals. To do so, they must pursue mutually-beneficial “customer of choice” status with key suppliers through effective Supplier Collaboration and Innovation (SC&I).

Yet despite the many benefits that SC&I can bring to enterprise businesses, procurement functions at enterprise organisations frequently struggle to work collaboratively with supplier stakeholders due to the scale and complexity of their relationships.

Luckily, Vizibl and Gartner are here to help.
