As a result of digitization, purchasing departments are being completely restructured. Numerous routine tasks can be automated or outsourced to shared service centers. Purchasers themselves will become increasingly involved in strategic matters to ensure the ability to deliver. They maintain the strategic, global business relationships with suppliers and are responsible for supplier evaluation.
This requires a change in thinking. In the highly competitive, globalized world, with all its complex value chains, supplier selection can be the difference between success and failure. Failure to deliver costs money. A supplier that does not comply with regulations can permanently damage a company’s reputation, and ultimately prove to be far more costly. New IT solutions can help businesses to make the right decisions when it comes to supplier selection.
Whether in Europe or China, purchasing conditions and processes can differ significantly. That’s why we support our customers with local experts, worldwide – and consider all country-specific particularities.
