- In our company procurement function works well. We experience no issues.
- Yes, effective procurement is a reality. And at the same time, there are several signs of profit losses because of procurement inefficiency.

1. If a company is not able to describe internal processes, since only several people own "MYSTIC" KNOWLEDGE in procurement. And they are so busy with routine operational tasks that they can not be distracted even for a moment.

2. The procurement function is MANUALLY MANAGED or only thanks to brainy employees. There exit procedures, but actually everything works differently.

3. Inexperienced, incorrect EXPENDITURES. E.g. seasonal payments appear unexpectedly, ad-hoc. Tenders are unclear, but it is not easy to verify since the papers look ok.

4. The owner or CEO feels that buyers have opportunities for FRAUD, corruption and kickbacks. Just a feeling. Perhaps it's time to find them?
"If you see at least one of these symptoms in your company, it is worthy to investigate existing procurement processes"

What Our Clients Say
"Procurement departments are now on the verge of big changes. Their role strengthens annually. From tactical work, they move to a full-fledged strategic role in the company, adding value and an entrepreneurial approach.

1. Procurement is the function that does not spend company money, but EARNS it.
2. With every year, companies are more careful in cost CONTROL.
3. The future of procurement is in NEW TECHNOLOGIES, Big Data, outsourcing and risk management in supply chain. "
