The Procurement Technology Landscape in the Middle EastIn this episode, Iyad underscores the need for user-centric design in enterprise software, aligning it with consumer app experiences like Uber. Iyad critiques the persisting complexity and outdated interfaces in enterprise software and advocates for prioritising simplicity to enhance employee engagement and productivity. Using Penny as an example, he showcases how a user-friendly approach can attract suppliers without extensive training. The episode also discusses the importance of governance policies in procurement software, emphasising the values of saving, control, and efficiency. CEOs and CFOs are identified as advocates for digitising procurement to ensure compliance and governance, especially in rapidly growing mid-market companies. Penny targets such companies driven by governance needs, regardless of location or industry. Timestamps: [00:01:45] Introducing Iyad Aldalooj from Penny. [00:05:37] What makes Penny unique.
