Materials Management

Materials Procurement

Globally sourcing high quality products and raw materials for you at low cost.

Poor procurement practices can result in lower quality purchases, products that don’t meet your customer needs, inaccurate order quantities and reputational damage.

By managing your procurement needs, Exertis Supply Chain Services will consolidate your supply and reduce the associated complexity in your business. By allowing Exertis to manage your procurement, you will deal with a single trusted partner, and one interface that is focused on seamless supply management. We will also optimise your level of capital by moving you from a fixed to a variable cost base, increasing your free cash flow. Your costs will be dramatically reduced as we source your materials and products from low cost suppliers.

OUR PROCUREMENT SERVICES INCLUDE:

INVENTORY FINANCING
Through our Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) programme, we will finance the procurement of your inventory, manage and maintain it in our ownership and deliver it to you on a Just-in-Time (JIT) basis, meaning you only pay for your goods on consumption. This will significantly reduce your working capital requirements.

APPROVED VENDOR LIST (AVL) MANAGEMENT
We will work with your own AVL, negotiate terms on your behalf, on-board the chosen supplier, manage all orders and provide you with a regular supplier performance report.

SUPPLIER CONSOLIDATION
We will consolidate your supply base and become your Alpha Supplier, managing numerous suppliers on your behalf, reducing complexity in your business and ensuring you only receive one invoice. We can also work with your own AVL and manage suppliers under your negotiated terms and conditions, assuming total management ownership of the supply base on your behalf.

SUPPLIER SOURCING
With thousands of approved suppliers in our global network, we will source high quality goods for the lowest available price, based on your specifications.

RAW MATERIALS PROCUREMENT
We will manage your raw materials, components or spare parts procurement from your Approved Vendor List (AVL) or from our supplier network, depending on your requirements.

FINISHED GOODS PROCUREMENT
We will purchase, assemble, manage and deliver your finished goods to your required global locations on demand.

Exertis Supply Chain Services’ streamlined procurement processes will dramatically lower your costs, improve your efficiency and grow your bottom line.
