Science Warehouse undertook the annual Procurement Trends Survey for the sixth consecutive year in 2017.
This vital piece of research assesses how procurement professionals are looking to invest, as well as the challenges and opportunities they see in the year ahead. In comparison with previous years, we see significant shifts in the importance of data, technology and procurement becoming more strategic, whilst Brexit is a new factor that organisations must learn to tackle. The survey took in the views of professionals from many different sectors.

There were 4 key trends which we discovered:
There is an increasing recognition of the importance of data in procurement decision making.
We see an upsurge in awareness of the relevance of Artificial Intelligence to procurement and Supplier networks are seen as increasingly important.
