Use this Intro : In this contemporary world of the competitive market, purchasing professionals must be able to provide to their firms quality products at reasonable prices. “Product quality is a direct result of the production workforce and suppliers. Buying organizations can no longer afford to maintain a large supplier base” (Benton, p 157).
