Effective Purchasing Skills

Venue: Cebu City

Category: Warehouse, Inventory, Purchasing and Logistics

Are your purchasers buying the best products at the cheapest price? In many businesses, significant additional short term profits are easily found following this philosophy. But have you looked at the cost to your business in the long term? Cheap inputs items usually mean lower quality output products that your clients will notice. If you do this enough times, they usually go look elsewhere for higher quality products even if it will cost them a little more.

In the many years I spent as a purchaser, I have across many instances where the cheapest is not necessarily the best purchase. Do your people have the skills they need to really compare prices and quality? What are your Key Performance Indices for your suppliers?

This course will teach your purchasing staff the skills they need to be able to purchase the products you need, in the quantity you need, in the quality you need, at the time you need it at the best price that they can get.
