Digitalisation is for many companies on top-management’s agenda and have already impacted the supply chain and procurement on many levels. Digital procurement will unavoidably also be the next big thing for most procurement organizations especially those that are still in early days when it comes to harnessing data and using technologies to support value-creation in procurement.

At the Digital procurement conference May 7th we have invited among others Egmont Publishing and Maersk to share some insights on their digitalisation initiatives and how to overcome different barriers and challenges as well as on how to have your organization benefitting from digital procurement.

Benchmark your Digital Procurement maturity with Danish and European companies.
