Speed is undoubtedly an essential element of doing business: it has led us to more reactive, agile organizations and processes, rendering the value creation chain more responsive and flexible and minimizing the impact of geographical distance as well as facilitating big data analysis.
All those working in the purchasing or supply chain sector must manage the speed of operations in an extremely effective manner - indeed, these professionals must be in possession of the managerial skills, knowledge and tools necessary to do so, rendering this a vital competitive factor in the success of the company and its relationships with suppliers, clients and markets in general.

But above all, what support do these information systems provide to purchasing divisions in ensuring effective and successful management of sourcing, spending and supplier relationship management in general?
