Purchasing

The permanent increase in price pressure and external purchasing volume has led to the fact that procurement methods have become significantly more important in recent years. Only those companies who have pro-actively turned their purchasing activities, future-oriented and cross-departmental will be able to fulfill the rising requirements.
