Opera­tional purcha­sing focuses on the classic func­tions of purcha­sing in day-to-day busi­ness: routine orde­ring and payment processes, goods inspec­tion, inven­tory manage­ment, returns and complaints, dead­line tracking. The demand on opera­tional purcha­sing is in parti­cular to ensure the avai­la­bi­lity of produc­tion mate­rials, mate­rials or even machines.

Toge­ther with the part­ners of the IFE, ensure that exis­ting requi­re­ments can be met despite diffi­cult condi­tions due to vola­tile customer and procu­re­ment markets and that resources are conserved in the process.

We want to enable you to reco­gnize trends, inte­grate them into opera­tional order proces­sing in the inte­rests of your company, and ensure adequate commu­ni­ca­tion with suppliers. To this end, we provide bench­marks and best prac­tice approa­ches, among other things. The core aspi­ra­tion of our approach: the grea­test possible secu­rity in unplan­nable times.
