The internal organization, the definition of purchasing processes, the implementation of internal tools as well as the training of buyers are all essential criteria for obtaining convincing results. Absoluz Consulting’s purchasing consultants offer you their expertise to implement and manage these tools and services.

The organization of a purchasing department, whatever its size, is essential for its recognition within the company and to enable it to be efficient.

The organization of a purchasing department, whatever its size, is essential for its recognition within the company and to enable it to be efficient.

As for the training of buyers, it is essential because in order to be able to carry out a negotiation successfully, they must be able to understand the needs of the customers, to know the markets on which they work, to follow the suppliers in terms of costs, quality, deadlines and innovation, to identify new solutions, to draw up a contract and to follow up the realization of the contracts.

Purchasing is an essential function within a company because it not only allows for savings, but it is also a vector of quality and innovation.

The purchase negotiation mainly concerns :

– the method of payment,

– the distribution of costs (administration, tax, transport, other)

– and possible risks (late payment, delivery, non-conforming or defective products, return policy, maintenance, after-sales service)

In addition to pure and simple negotiation, the purchasing manager’s mission is to ensure a technological, competitive and sectorial watch. Identifying new technologies or new services is a powerful lever to boost a company’s competitiveness.

Finally, the Purchasing Manager visits suppliers, audits their accounts, their production sites and their services. He/she makes proposals to improve the efficiency of the relationship between the company and its suppliers: drawing up and monitoring action plans, designing and optimizing processes, and evaluating performance at regular intervals are all part of his/her purchasing missions.
