The Spend Management Stimulus Package!

From : “In a recent interview with WallSt TV, our company’s President quoted a stat that really puts the impact of the recession on corporate profits and the opportunity that situation provides for procurement organizations in perspective. Kevin Costello said it takes a “20% increase in sales to create the same profits as a 5% decrease in the cost of goods sold.” If that doesn’t scream out for procurement organizations to take the lead in helping their company survive (thrive?) during the current recession, I don’t know what does. After all, how many companies can possibly expect to increase sales in the current environment? But at a time of dropping prices and demand, it’s certainly possible to cut costs.”
