Procurement

What is Procurement?

Precurement is the acquisition of goods, services or works from an outside external source. It is favourable that the goods, services or works are appropriate and that they are procured at the best possible cost to meet the needs of the purchaser in terms of quality and quantity, time and location.

How we do what we do:

Quoting:

Let us know what you need, and we will put together a comprehensive quote to source, consolidate and deliver your order, with comparative quotes on different brands or options if required.

Sourcing:

Finding the products, you are looking for and negotiating the best price is our specialty. Our knowledge of the manufacturing and importing sectors allows us to source your products directly. We can also offer you alternative brands or products to suit your needs. Since we are buying for many customers, our suppliers generally offer us volume discounts which are passed onto you, the customer.

Delivery (Local or International):

Moving goods around is an expensive process. We have relationships with several transport and courier companies. We will ensure that your goods are delivered to you in the most cost effective and efficient way possible.

Consolidation

If your operation is in a remote location or if you would prefer to receive all your goods in a single delivery, we can consolidate your order and package it professionally to prevent damage during transport.

International Delivery

If you are located outside South African borders, we can export the goods for you.

Overview

Outsourced procurement teams allow companies to benefit immediately from experienced procurement specialist support & expertise. This avoids the creation of an internal team (new resources) and the required time for that team to structure itself, its processes and its expertise.

Outsourced procurement is therefore an available solution for companies who:

Have no internal competencies but want to quickly benefit from procurement action (Cost reduction, suppliers and contact management..)

Have internal procurement expertise (department) but want to outsource activity on specific area(s) like indirect materials and services.

Consider Procurement as a non-strategic / core function and want to have it managed by a procurement service provider.

Want to develop quickly a procurement function to deliver savings, with a willingness to internally develop this function in the mid term.
