Save Money – Focus On Your Strengths
In this stagnant economy, manufacturers have been relentless in reducing costs – with much of it coming through headcount reductions. Often, however, manufacturers struggle to find cost-savings in procurement, leading to higher prices and a drain on limited resources. Even progressive organizations that implement Lean and Six Sigma programs struggle to extend those best practices to procurement and have difficulty managing non-strategic spend categories.
ThePurchasingDept puts the purchasing power usually reserved for the largest organizations into the hands of all manufacturing firms. We let you focus on your products and processes while keeping your operating expenses low and your suppliers’ service levels high.
