Focus & Features

Purchasing as a function has significantly evolved over time. With the increasing pressure to reduce cost at the entity level, do more with less, and an external environment with volatile commodity prices, this function is no longer a simple responsibility of creating a purchase request and placing a purchase order with the suppliers.

Far beyond its original core, it now requires a significant amount of knowledge and expertise across the broad fields of finance, product supply, engineering, and commercial activities. Therefore, this necessitates looking at the function at an end to end level where an understanding on how supplier's products or services are eventually integrated to an entity's internal systems.
