Top five futures of procurement technology advancements

1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning:

The use of AI and machine learning in procurement will enable organizations to make better decisions by understanding the data collected throughout the procurement process. This technology can help identify patterns and trends, which can then be used to improve negotiations, supplier management, and contract management.

2. The Blockchain:

The blockchain is a distributed database that allows for secure, transparent, and tamper-proof transactions. This could be used in procurement to create an immutable ledger of all transactions. This would help improve transparency and trust between buyers and suppliers.

3. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR):

AR and VR technology can be used in procurement to provide visual representations of products and services. This would help buyers make more informed decisions and improve the negotiation process.

4. The Internet of Things (IoT):

The IoT is a network of connected devices that collect and share data. This data can be used in procurement to tracking supplier performance, identify irregularities, and improve supply chain transparency.

5. Robotics:

Robotics can be used in procurement to automate tasks such as bid analysis and contract management. This would help speed up the procurement process and reduce the need for human intervention.
