I am joined today by Shaz Khan, the co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Vroozi, a leading cloud-based business purchasing platform.
Shaz has a deep background in procurement technology, with a particular focus on SAP.
As long time listeners will know, I learn more and more every day about the nuts and bolts of procurement technology, while tending to spend more time looking for trends that I think will impact our profession.
One of those trends is self-service sourcing – empowering the organization to buy directly the vast majority of products and services they need, one the frameworks and governance structures are in place to support it.
And so, the main topic for today’s conversation is that of self-service sourcing. Is it a threat, or an opportunity for procurement?
