Strategic Sourcing For Utility and Energy Companies
Utility companies are under an enormous amount of pressure to reliably maintain the nation’s infrastructure.
For electric, water, natural gas, phone or cable utility companies – the responsibility is immense and especially daunting in the face of a down economy and natural disasters.
