Interview Prof. Stefan Zeisel

    Platform economy - what's in it for purchasing?

    Platform economy in procurement :

    • The role of platforms in Procurement 4.0
    • Is it worth setting up your own platform??
    • Why it matters where your platform operator is based

    Procurement 4.0 largely revolves around the platform economy. Professor Stefan Zeisel from the Department of Purchasing and Logistics at Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences talks about the questions buyers need to ask regarding the platform economy: What should I bear in mind when choosing a platform? How will it genuinely improve procurement? And why hasn’t the platform economy caught on in Europe as much as it has in, say, the USA?

    My name is Julia Rau and I work as an editor at Mercateo. As a trained journalist, I spent several years poking my nose into all kinds of things for daily newspapers and, among other things, wrote a series on digitalisation. My inexhaustible curiosity drives me time and time again towards all those topics for which the Federal Government has included a “4.0” in the title.
