Supplier Relationship Management – process and IT consultancy for your purchasing department

Topics such as Industry4.0 and globalization, as well as the necessary and corresponding optimization of supply chains, require higher efficiency and wide ranging process integration, not least in procurement and supplier management.
In order to serve the expanded role of purchasing and the strategic importance of supplier management, new procedures and methods as well as tailor-made processes are necessary. These must be individually optimized to suit each company’s situation. You can trust in our integrated and practice oriented consultancy and solutions competency.
