The market imposes its law. It influences organisations’ changes, decisions and projects . A situation of uncertainty requires a greater competitive level: companies choose to reduce margins, and the purchasing area becomes more decisive than ever. What can be done? At Fullstep we have extensive experience in the development of purchasing strategies which are tailor made for each company.
When drawing up a purchasing strategy, we take into account the following factors:
Internal positioning of Purchasing
Organisational environment of the Purchasing Area
Control over the Expenditure Cycle
In each case, the areas in question and their respective functions are defined (see diagram) with a view to increasing what purchasing means to the company’s bottom line. What do we hope to achieve with this?
Improve the company’s level of competitiveness
Establish an optimum relationship with strategic users and suppliers.
Improve cost savings.
The strategic plan defines the first steps needed to transform purchasing into a source of in-house services that improve company competitiveness. If you want to find out more about what Purchasing can do for your company, please do not hesitate to contact us.
