Blockchain has regularly been touted as the biggest innovation in procurement due to its ability to streamline processes and build trust between transacting parties. It acts as a digital ledger that is decentralized and immutable, making the technology ‘tamper-proof’. Also, since the technology is decentralized, information is shared equally between all parties of the network - thus, eliminating the need for middlemen and third-parties. By utilizing this technology, businesses can avoid conflicts, save time, and focus on their core business.
A smart contract, as the name suggests, is an electronic contract that has the capability to self-execute when predetermined conditions are met. Since these contracts leverage blockchain technology, predefined actions, such as payments, can be executed automatically without any dependence on intermediaries.
