Why Outsourcing Tail spend management a priority?
Definition : Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) in procurement is the practice of outsourcing all or part of a company’s purchasing administration to an external service provider.
Why: Procurement outsourcing creates a business model that reduces internal costs while increasing the company’s performance and competitiveness. The company thus achieves a competitive advantage by focusing its teams on high value-added purchasing projects that are essential to its development.
