Interest Rates Are at an All-Time Low! But, What If…

We’re currently running as a snap poll in conjunction with ISM. It's a super short survey and will take five to 10 minutes, max. The study is aimed at helping bridging procurement, supply chain, and finance from taking a cash-centric view about how liquidity drives supply. Our focus is on understanding perceptions on recent inflationary trends and the increasing cost of finance capital, among other areas. Study participants will receive the quantitative study results, but will also receive additional research currently being performed on what some leading companies are doing in these areas. For an extra little incentive, participants will also have a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card, and with only a few dozen responses so far, your chances are good! Click here to take the survey.
