Organisations are increasingly utilising the added value of suppliers for their own strategic proposition. Influenced by the current trend of outsourcing activities, more and more organisations are being established that are structured as network connections. Some even argue that cooperation in alliances is the organisational structure of the future.
With professional management of its suppliers in that network, a mature procurement organisation can offer significant added value to the performance of an organisation. This added value is created by savings on procurement costs while also increasing quality and innovation of products and services, lowering risk, increasing logistics management and improving the primary processes together with the suppliers.
Berenschot advises organisations in both the public sector and the private sector in the area of procurement. We honour the differences between both working areas where they relate, for example, to legislation and political decision making and are familiar with the unique customer questions common to both sectors.
