What is procurement?

Procurement is the process of obtaining goods and services in quantity at the lowest price possible, with the best value from a third-party vendor through direct purchasing, competitive bidding, and tendering of goods and services to support your day-to-day business operations.

What items are mostly procured for businesses?

The procurement of goods and services depends on the business you’re running. Let’s say a company would procure items in bulk such as computer equipment, office supplies, office furniture, ergonomic chairs, office desks, bond papers, machinery, and typically anything that a business needs for everyday operations. The good news is Shoppable Business has it all!
