As we approach the upcoming holidays, our schedules can become incredibly busy, and with Thanksgiving today we have a lot to be thankful for as an eProcurement company. It’s easy to forget the true meaning of why we celebrate Thanksgiving though.
So, in order to energize your hearts, start counting your blessings! eProcurement professionals should be thankful for these four things this holiday season.
1-Technology: New technology helps you overcome the challenges of modern esourcing, making your job easier to do. Without an esourcing solution, you could be wasting valuable time in manual processes.
2-Team: Always be thankful for your teammates! If your company values collaboration, it’s difficult to imagine doing your job without the support of your coworkers. Before you leave work to join your family for the holidays, take a few minutes to tell your coworkers how grateful you are for them.
3-Resources: In the chaos of the holiday season, you may not have a ton of extra time to keep up with current trends and best practices. However, be thankful those resources are available when you need them! You never know when you’ll need to make improvements to a process or project you aren’t familiar with.
4-Suppliers: Do you have a supplier that goes the extra mile to ensure your goods arrive in a timely manner? Be thankful for them! Positive supplier relationships are healthy for your supply chain, and can make your job less stressful.
At the end of the day, we have plenty to be thankful for here at ProRFx. After a fantastic 2014 (still with one month to go), our new eProcurement system gives us plenty to be thankful for. And of course our eProcurement system wouldn’t be anywhere with out you, so thank you so much for a great 2014 and have a fantastic Thanksgiving from ProRFx.
