Procurement

PROCUREMENT LOGISTICS

The supply side of any organization usually presents the biggest challenge to many enterprises. Organizational production has gone global where manufacturing facilities are sited in multiple locations across national boundaries. Procurement of parts and services in order to build up the product then becomes a nightmare for many companies who run into complicated network designs just to prevent production lines from shutting down. Organizations nowadays are then looking to the next frontier where cost levels can be further driven down. This has given rise to the obsession of efficient supply chains where excesses of inventory along the supply pipeline translates to increased financial burden. Additionally, lack of material availability along the pipeline will only hinder customer satisfaction and lost of sales. Dextrans’ expertise in this area in collaborative commerce allows multiple partners across the supply pipeline to coordinate work activities so as to reduce bottle necks.
