Strategic Sourcing Solutions for the Restaurant Industry
Restaurant procurement and the need for a flexible, scalable bidding and analytical sourcing solution
Basic e-sourcing technology is proving ineffective in the restaurant procurement landscape. With a seemingly endless mix of food ingredients, packaging, disposables, transportation and distribution services to manage, analyze and implement, most basic sourcing solutions lack the bidding capabilities and scalability needed to adequately address this wide array of spend categories.
