Purchasing as a core activity


Purchasing as a cost item? Contrary!

Many organizations delegate the purchasing activity to different employees. Purchasing is organized in a decentralized way and consultation is often omitted. Knowledge of purchasing is fragmented in the organization. As a result, misunderstandings arise and purchasing takes an unnecessary amount of energy. Thinking about strategic purchasing choices will hardly be done. 
There’s another way.

Focus on purchasing is simply missing

Purchasing as a core activity

Like no other, we can clearly explain the influence of purchasing on the operating result. The results are often astonishing. And motivate purchasing engagements to optimize this result.
Purchasing as a cost item? Contrary!
Let’s say your purchase volume in relation to your turnover is large, but hiring a purchasing professional is too heavy a burden on your overhead. Then the daily practice is that many employees provide assignments. This is not a major risk because the amounts per assignment are often small. And larger amounts always go in good consultation with the management team.
The question then is; what pitfalls arise?
The purchasing professional observe daily the following:
  1. Financial authorizations are not or insufficiently recorded.
  2. Each department has its preferred suppliers.
  3. Business is done with a (too) large number of suppliers.
  4. We have multiple suppliers for every product and service.
  5. Prices and conditions are not negotiated.
  6. Checking invoices takes place little or not at all.
  7. The employees and suppliers do not know your General Purchasing Conditions.
  8. WKA legislation is not sufficiently taken into account when purchasing services.
  9. Job separation is not applied.
  10. Many purchase invoices have a value of < € 100,00.
Just a list of some facts in many organizations. Without increasing fixed costs, there are solutions.
Tresviri offers these solutions.
