    It is in fact critical that procurement is a critical, strategic part of an organisation: procurement directly influences the profit margin! This however means that you need to have pro-active procurement staff that understands this and is able to demonstrate their result on the margin to be able to convince doubters.

    Thanks for sharing, Josh!
    I definitely think that a great procurement process can be an agent of change. If a system is deployed that integrates internal controls, the organization can become more financially sound and also have a better process. This is a big change from ad hoc paper and verbal processes, especially if the new solution is electronic.
