Supply Chain Canada’s delighted to be hosting our Outsourcing Symposium this June 2 and 3rd. Our recent merger with Core has expanded Supply Chain’s offering to include issues and insight in the sourcing of services. – We have heard from Supply Chain members that the pandemic has accelerated investments in digital transformation, and as a result we’re seeing the impacts appear in outsourced services. This drive to transform will lead to a greater number of services delivered through AI platforms, and as a result, there will be a fundamental shift in the cost to deliver outsourced services. Our upcoming Outsourcing Symposium, we will discuss the pressing issues we are seeing in the sourcing of services from leading firms in the Canadian Marketplace.
