The biggest challenge that prevents organizations from investing in the best in-class technology solution for their procurement function is their scepticism over ROI. This scepticism not only inhibits their journey from an average to a world class procurement function but also affect their bottom line in longer run. According to a latest research report by Hackett group, an organization with world class procurement function typically generates a 10.7X return on its investment as compared to 4.7X for an organization with average procurement function.
