What is procurement?

The definition of procurement is closely related to the definition of purchasing, in the case of Thornstein, the purchase of software licenses, cloud and other IT services. Procurement is wider than purchasing: it is not only about the actual purchase itself, so the operational work that is involved, but also the moments before and after the purchase.

Procurement is all about optimally integrating the purchase into the business processes. Therefore, procurement is not just the purchase, it also involves cases like storage management, inventory management, and material planning. The complete supply chain.
