The purchasing departments of companies in the industrial manufacturing sector constitute a fundamental pillar in any company. The sector is so broad and has so many possibilities and categorization, that it is very difficult for a department to have enough knowledge to get the most out of your company, since the purchasing function is increasingly complex and requires greater professionalization.
During the purchasing process, the heads of the department are covered by a large number of doubts throughout the procedure. The search for manufacturers of a certain type of manufacturing process is simple. The problems come when we go into the details, as if there are verifications that the manufacturers are competitive, have extensive experience and quality control. Even more doubts arise in the specifications and technical requirements determined on each project.
Due to so many details of great importance, there are many occasions in which the benefits of organizations are limited by technical-economic problems when it comes to developing industrial manufacturing projects.
External aid to industrial purchasing departments
That is why currently, many companies from all types of sectors seek to strengthen their purchasing department, which is achieved by seeking external collaboration. That is, collaborating with another company and / or specialized people with sufficient knowledge and technical experience in a defined sector to support and help improve the internal purchasing department in their new projects.
This trend has also become known as #SocialProcurement and it does not have to be an additional cost for a company. Many times, on the contrary, since the direct benefits are always greater.
The Purchasing Department should always be one of the priorities in the organization’s gear, so any technical help oriented to results is not trivial.
