Procurement involves the buying of goods and services and supply chain management is the flow of goods and services, so naturally the two go hand in hand as each element is essential to the other. The two form a network between a company, its suppliers and its customers. When procurement and supply chain management is done well, it can lower the company’s overall costs and boost profitability.
Things need to be sold at a competitive price to attract the consumers, meaning companies need to buy these goods in at the right price to be able to pass those savings on to the customer, whilst also making a healthy profit for themselves.
Supply chain management can be a bit of a balancing act - you need to have the goods ready and waiting for the buyers, whilst making sure you avoid having excess products leftover at the end of the season. This is where a skilled supply chain manager with the right knowledge and experience be invaluable to your business.
