Category Management is the cornerstone of sustainable and measurable value delivery to the bottom line.
Are category expert teams in place and do they cooperate closely with the business counterparts to source the company requirements, not to buy an individual product or service?
Are category strategies available, are they updated regularly and does a medium to long term sourcing pipeline exist?
Are key suppliers identified and a strategic relationship established with them?
Category Management is an end-to-end process, which focuses on providing highly competitive framework agreements for the product and service requirements of the company.
It goes significantly beyond price but also drives value from contract and supplier relationship management.
We support your teams in developing and applying Category Management by utilizing world class processes and tools to significantly foster the Procurement contribution to the bottom line.
