Take Control Of Purchasing
If your organization is like most, then your purchasing process is a complex web of measurements, approvals, forecasts, and processes. It has evolved to this because purchasing has a direct impact on a number of business aspects including cost of goods sold, product quality, and bottom-line successes. Unfortunately, a side effect of this is that purchasing departments become paper pushers, concentrated only on getting the approvals and completing the processes needed in order to move on to the next purchasing task. When your costs are rising, your purchasing processes are a likely culprit.
Better Tools Will Lower Purchasing Costs
It is extremely important for companies to be open to making changes and improvements to their procurement processes. Training is essential but even more critical to a streamlined process is a comprehensive technology solution that allows them to easily control and manage spending.
When you give your purchasing staff easy-to-use and accurate procurement tools, they have the time they need to concentrate their efforts on other tasks. These are important business tasks such as managing vendor relations, seeking out lower cost alternatives, evaluating transactions, supplier management, contract management, managing inventory, negotiating discounts, and reducing overhead and costs.
Don’t get bogged down with administrative duties.
