How Consumer Products Procurement Leaders are Navigating the New Reality

As consumer products companies confront the challenges of today’s business environment, they are experiencing tremendous pressures to grow revenue while dealing with diverse issues, including skilled labour shortage, factory shutdowns, changing customer demands, and supply chain disruptions. 

To not only survive but thrive, during this ‘new normal’, most consumer products companies are investing heavily in digital initiatives hoping to save costs, gain supply chain visibility, and increase AP efficiency to support a remote workforce.

  • How can Procurement leaders optimize these technology and operations investments?
  • How can consumer product companies navigate the pandemic’s economic impact while positioning themselves for new opportunities?
  • Other related issues to the challenges the new normal presents
