How to make procurement and supply chain management your success factor

Efficient cooperation in the supply chain is our passion.

Both potential and complexity in procurement and supply management are often underestimated.

Procurement and supply chain management are crucial levers for the success of the entire company. Only with the right suppliers and good cooperation with these suppliers companies can achieve high performance today!

In order to succeed, it is necessary that the corporate functions of procurement and supply chain management are well integrated into the key processes and essential decisions of the company as a whole, especially in the definition of corporate strategy. Procurement and supply chain management have to be guided by the respective goals.

Management of Complexity

In order to enable the corporate functions of procurement and supply chain management to live their role, it is important to manage complexity effectively. Procurement alone has several and above all sometimes conflicting goals to pursue. The same applies to the supply chain management. Many companies struggle with this in particular in a world of rapidly changing boundary conditions.

That means for instance, management has to set priorities: Should the costs be reduced primarily quickly or in the long term? When can high quality or adherence to delivery dates be more important than savings? In which cases should ensuring a high level of security of supply take precedence over achieving low storage costs? What influence should the goal of remaining flexible have when it comes to long-term supplier development?

Strategic supply management: pursuing the right issues

We help you and your company find the right focal points such that future issues drive concrete goals and actions. Emarticon's approach in the process is to translate these goals into procurement and supply chain actions according to the corporate strategy and to the market situation. We call this strategic supply management.
