The maturity of the purchasing organizations has grown strongly for many years but remains uneven from one industry to another and, in any case, rarely adapted to the just need for value creation. Governance, profiles, structure, skills, tools, processes, communication ... Each of these pillars must be analyzed to determine the purchasing organization and its processes adapted to the company's strategy.
In a global and competitive economy, companies, especially industrial firms, are confronted with multiple contradictory injunctions that impact the supply chain:
- Produce and deliver at a lower cost while reducing delivery times
- Optimizing inventory and working capital requirements while guaranteeing optimal service levels
- Fostering innovation among suppliers while negotiating total cost of ownership
- Tuning volatile demand and rigid production tools
- Reconciling local service with effective centralization
These dilemmas are fundamental issues that go beyond tactical operational concerns and require strategic reflection on the business model and supply chain. Answering these questions requires analytical skills, a sense of the field and knowledge of best practices.
Our goal is to work with your teams to increase the performance of your organization by developing synergies between your procurement, and overall needs of your company.
To achieve such results and improve your procurement, we believe implementing a global SRM strategy will help you reduce purchasing costs, generate productivity gains, develop and structure your relationship with your suppliers, and improve your overall capacity for innovation and quality control.
