Working smart and being efficient

I quit my corporate Global Procurement role because I got frustrated spending 50% of my time on “busy work”

That’s my “why” and what drove me to move into this space.

If you ask your team, they’re probably stuck on the exact same hamster wheel!

I’ve been a procurement pro since 2002, working in 5 different countries. Other than tightening up a lot on compliance, not a huge amount has changed since then when it comes to the technology we use in the workplace.

Until recently. And that’s why I’ve never been more inspired and excited about our profession’s future.

Digital procurement has huge potential, and it’s way more affordable than you probably think.

If you’re a mid-market business, look beyond clunky, legacy brand software and the consultancies who implement them. They’re not built to serve your needs and budget.

And that’s where I can help you.

I speak to procurement software CEOs each week for The Procuretech Podcast. I’ve seen over 30 demos and I also own a directory website of over 275 digital procurement solutions. What’s more, I understand the procurement challenges as a practitioner.

If you’re curious, then I’d like to get to know you and your business’s unique challenges…
