Corporate margins are highly exposed to shifts in raw material prices, global competition and economic stability. In recessionary times, access to working capital financing can be both scarce and expensive. Firms that have large procurement costs are highly susceptible in these scenarios, especially in industries where purchasing represents up to 80 percent of total costs. Purchasing is therefore one of the key strategic areas for generating competitive advantage and value creation.
