Lean Procurement Fits In

An integral part of supply chain optimization

Lean Procurement fits into the Supply Chain Optimization strategy.

The Lean Procurement strategy helps you on your journey towards Supply Chain Optimization. It specifically optimizes the procurement process of the wide range of industrial and office supplies and takes that brick off your load.

This category of industrial and office supplies is low value, high velocity products that are repetitive and very necessary to your operation. However, the time and paperwork associated with procuring these far outweighs the value.

Optimizing the procurement of this group of products gives your procurement team more time to spend on more valuable activities in your supply chain. This category is a low risk area to begin the optimization process.

You’ll receive a streamlined procurement process for supplies; reduced spending on ‘best fit’ supplies and measurable accountability that spending is under control.
