Procurement software buyer's guide: 2023 Edition

The business environment is getting more complex due to Australia’s historic infrastructure boom facing global shortages and delays. Once again, procurement and supply chain are in the spotlight.

We are seeing a major confluence of significant issues in construction today due to Australia’s historic infrastructure boom and more recently, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The consequent skill shortages, greater reliance on outsourcing and sharply increasing cost pressures are just some of the challenges dialling up the overall risk of adverse outcomes for projects. Leaders need to ensure they have adequate systems to drive transparency, accountability and sustainability throughout their supply chains

Procurement has always played a critical role; from vendor selection and relationship building, to strategic sourcing and contract management. It is a multifaceted discipline in which the responsibilities and complexities can quickly scale.

But not all procurement software solutions are equal and selecting the right provider for your organisation isn’t a task to be taken lightly. With such high stakes, sourcing the right technology to optimise and streamline your procurement function has never been more important.

In order to help, we’ve created this buyer’s guide covering important considerations when making one of the most impactful software purchasing decisions in 2023.
