The B2B buying process can be long, complicated, and fraught with risk. It’d be nice if a single qualified expert could run a simple cost/benefit analysis and choose the “best” option, but enterprise procurement is far from straightforward.

And the bigger the purchase, the longer and more involved the process.

This guide is a resource for professionals in any line of business who are launching a procurement project, whether that be a new software purchase, a hardware purchase, or a new service contract. To guide you through the buying process, we’ll look at six distinct stages and provide tips and best practices based on the latest research.
