Many organizations know that their paper-based procurement systems are expensive and inefficient, but too few realize that online procurement is a practical alternative. In particular, many small- to medium-size businesses fail to comprehend that cost-effective e-procurement for them is a reality today. This is not to say that IT managers should recommend that their organizations jump blindly into placing orders on the Web, but rather that a good plan will likely lead to a much improved procurement system. These improvements will not only cut costs but the quicker responses also will satisfy users.
