It should come as no surprise to procurement professionals that they should have the data they need to do their jobs at their fingertips. Relevant data is on their desktops, in books, and on the minds of key people on their teams. But what happens when the data is lost or colleagues leave the company?

This was a quote passed to me by a colleague who was discussing our mobile procurement software strategy with the prospective customer. You might be forgiven for thinking that this was some sort of dismissive statement, indicating perhaps an underlying Luddite tendency, “We’ve never used procurement software like that before so don’t see why we should start now”.
