Event description

Description

Strategic Sourcing is too slow and resource intensive.

High performing teams can conduct higher quality bid processes faster and glean much richer information from the market. It will also explore new developments in Automation & Sourcing Robotics that are pushing back the boundaries of performance and speed.
