Cost Is Most Pressing Issue Among Purchasing Officers, According To Key Findings From Expert Procurement Panel

LOS ANGELES, April 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chief procurement officers need to analyze their spend data and assign benchmarks to help improve efficiencies and reduce costs in their supply chains, according to key findings from a recent webcast titled, " Improving Procurement Performance in a Cost-Cutting Environment."

Hosted by Vroozi, Inc., a worldwide provider of B2B e-procurement cloud solutions, the free 60-minute online panel discussion examined how purchasing directors can create greater efficiencies, reduce costs and optimize indirect procurement programs.

"Companies both large and small increasingly are turning their attention to online procurement for traditional back office processes to achieve efficiency gains," said Shaz Khan, co-founder of Vroozi who moderated the discussion. "Coupled with this objective is an increasingly challenging landscape with organizational spend that is global, complex and multi-enterprise."

The webcast panel consisted of procurement experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dow Chemical, Wipro and Salesforce.com, who provided the following takeaways aimed at chief procurement officers for improving purchasing performance in a cost-cutting environment:

  • Analyze spending data and align procurement initiatives with corporate vision and goals.
  • Choose a framework for assigning ROI metrics and benchmarks.
  • Implement technologies that can advance the procurement process.
  • Account for all current and future costs when evaluating new cloud technologies.
  • Build the business case for on-premise and cloud procurement technologies and evaluate which one makes sense.

"The global economic downturn during the last few years has refocused and reenergized companies in terms of cost control," added Khan, who helped create Vroozi's smart engine that allows users to search and compare products across external and internal catalogs. "Our recent online panel discussion of leading industry procurement experts yielded a great discussion and useful tips for chief procurement officers and purchasing directors looking to improve performance while reducing costs."
