Clive Rees, VP, international chief procurement officer at Fujitsu, told delegates at eWorld the firm had begun its journey towards a global procurement function towards the end of 2018 to tackle its “very fragmented” procurement system.
“It was very regionally led. We duplicated things sometimes. We were conflicting against each other so it was a bit of a mess,” he said.
