The confusion over whether energy prices are rising or falling (or perhaps even both at the same time) still seems to be an issue for many buyers.
But it got us thinking, what is the hardest thing for buyers to purchase? Energy, with its volatile prices and varying contracts, must be somewhere near the top.We also thought that with a healthy collection of suppliers and competition, goods would be easier to buy than services, with the “value” people expect from them ever-changing.
But are these assumptions correct? Are services more difficult to buy than goods? What are your most challenging spend areas?
