Our full-service offer also includes the procurement of goods. Our comprehensive material management already starts with the order intake. All required product components are checked for their availability. Therefore a quick statement about the intended delivery dates is practicable in the shortest possible time. For this purpose we use our customized order simulation tools.
When purchasing goods we do not limit ourselves to national borders. Our internationally established group ensures short-term action and long-term supplier relationships in global sourcing. For direct supplier support and assessment or on-site audits our worldwide network of partners and employees is available at any time. We can react immediately to purchasing and quality issues. In addition to the annual supplier evaluation and periodical quality assessments, we monitor the suppliers with our IT system with regard to quality and delivery reliability.
Another advantage of our procurement strategy is the advanced planning via framework contracts. Our dynamic purchasing planning determines customer-dependent requirements. This ensures short-term availability with stable prices for our wide portfolio of devices.
