Making Shift Happen in Procurement

17th November, 2015

The news that Tradeshift was entering into the procurement world sent social media into a flurry of activity when they announced the arrival of Tradeshift Buy recently.

And, in the burying of many a hatchet, their enlightened negotiation tactics paved the way for better country (and therefore business) value for all. In fact, their visionary perspective and new policies surrounding international crisis management set the scene for the later emergence of the United Nations and the EU.
