In the business world, the practice of using similar terminology seems to work, although it can sometimes be a little confusing.

Many people use the terms purchasing and procurement interchangeably, but despite their apparent similarities they do have different meanings.

This webinar aims to clarify any confusion between these two related, yet different, business cousins and put them into the supply chain context. The webinar will also help you look at the supply chain as a strategic management function that exists to add to the competitive advantage of your business.
