Hence, challenges and bottlenecks critical to business continuation are present in procurement functions.

Regardless of the past digitalization efforts, low level of transparency and cross-network collaboration characterizes procurement processes.

Overall, the potential of blockchain solution for improvement of both sourcing and transactional functions of the procurement is substantial, with implications in varying areas.
