In a context of increasingly complex suppliers markets and internationalization, the role of the purchasing department extends beyond its historical mission of “sustaining competitiveness”.
Required to manage transversal projects, often involving distant partners, Purchasing is continually evolving.
In addition to its fundamental purpose, purchasing faces new challenges such as evaluating internal and external risks, taking into consideration new societal issues, adding value and services. Supply management is becoming more strategic and operationally more complex.
Whether it is to discover new sources of competitiveness, to identify the manufacturers of a new technology or simply to compete with your current panel of suppliers, a supplier research is a key step to master.
The first step of the purchasing diagnostic consists in observing, listing and then structuring the various parameters and components of the purchasing organization within the company. The next step will be to analyze the collected data.
Deployment of the purchasing strategy
Operational purchases are just as important as “strategic” purchases. The organization and control of your operational purchases deliver the performance of your purchasing department and of your firm.
For every type of purchase (Products, Means, Services, Intellectual Services, etc), the integration of a new partner requires evaluation of risks.
EAQF audits conducted by Bridging satisfy this need for suppliers risks evaluation and management.
Ensuring quality supply
Buying products or services, especially internationally, inevitably entails risks. Risk prevention plans to secure supplies have to be taken, extending from the suppliers market research to the end-of-life management of the delivered products, including securing the quality and logistics of routine supplies.
