Venue: Alpa City Suites
Hernan Cortes corner F. Cabahug Street, Mandaue City, Cebu

Category: Supply Chain Program

For many businesses, significant additional profits can be found by closely analyzing their purchasing policies and looking for ways to lower their purchasing costs. This possibility is often overlooked because some managers assume that the best way to reduce prices is to treat suppliers as adversaries who should be continuously pressured to drop their prices or else. Successful companies have demonstrated that policies similar to this are counterproductive. Treating suppliers and customers as partners in a long term business relationship is a much better strategy. This workshop will teach you the tools and techniques to lower your purchasing costs while at the same time increasing the level of satisfaction that your customers enjoy. This is a 2 day program.

“The seminar gave me an idea on the other aspects of purchasing, inventories & attitudes towards discipline on work.” ~~ Roman Acero, Trans-Phil Builders
