HOW TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY IN THE PURCHASING DEPARTMENT

The purchasing department has a strategic role within the company organization, but more often than not this value is overshadowed by the amount of operational and low value-added activities which need to be handled daily.

Eliminating low value-added activities not only means reducing management costs: being able to automate and digitalize a series of activities and processes helps reducing execution times and allows companies to be faster and more responsive to the market.

Which are the low value-added activities?

  • Updating delivery dates, quantities and prices on the ERP
  • Updating and managing the revisions of drawings attached to the orders
  • Monitoring of delivery time and reminders
  • Collection and maintenance of declarations of origin of goods
