Future of Construction: Why Sourcing is Not Just About Pricing

Price is a crucial consideration for any company across all industries, whether it is the cost of a product or the potential savings it can bring. However, for those in the construction industry, sourcing is more than just about safeguarding their bottom line. It encompasses lead times and logistics requirements, spend management, supplier management, and even compliance regulations such as ESG requirements.
