The akirolabs strategic procurement platform is being built upon an industry-proven, world-class category management process. It can equally be applied beyond category and beyond supplier as the strategic procurement process remains the same, independent of what is bought or managed, enabling procurement to becoming the powerhouse of information and the value chain orchestrator.
akirolabs will host Bell Procurement Management on its Digital Procurement Cockpit so that customers can outsource the management of tail spend (or unmanaged spend) to gain more time focusing on strategic topics in procurement.
