Modern technology has empowered electronics manufacturing and supply chains to span the globe, and yet, many organizations still cling to outdated forms of both sourcing and procurement. Why is that? There’s some level of comfort in the old way of doing things, but even these methods come at their own costs.
Today’s top companies like Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple have taught consumers to hold digital experiences in the highest regard.
