o, this is the year of hope, so the Indian economy is poised for a growth phase, so the demand trends are moving skywards (same is the case with commodity prices), so your order books will look healthier, so your production facility will work full shift or overtime, so you need to align your men, machine & materials to get maximum productivity, so sometimes the demand trend fluctuations can
jeopardise your planning & forecasting, so while being price competitive is a must, quality is of paramount importance, so this is the age of smart purchase managers and not just efficient purchase managers, so are you up to it?
The age and advent of the smart purchase manager is here and now. So, if the needs of our purchase managers are changing, can a magazine, a special edition dedicated to the purchase manager afford to remain static? No points for guessing. We do realise that the way sourcing was done has undergone a massive change. As we set out to create a special offering, a part of our very special 13th Anniversary Issue, we thought that it is a good idea to be a Solution Source for the purchase manager along with being a Sourcing Guide for all his procurement needs, be it product or services.
So whats different this time? Well, many a things. Like the Purchase Managers Dilemma Decoded, a practical solution to a purchase managers problem. It is sprinkled all over the magazine among the products and services lisitings. Here, one among you, a purchase manager, shares his problem and the unique way in which he resolved or overcame that problem. A great learning, we must say!
Then, The Equipment Buying Tips are these handy tips. In short, equipment buying is simplified for those who are looking out for the best-fit solution, be it product or service. And while we share handy tips with you, we felt it was equally important to provide add-on information about the listed companies like demarcating the certified companies so that your purchase choice becomes simpler and smarter.
Staying with keeping it simpler and smarter, the Product Inquiry Form has metamorphosed into a smart and efficient Product Inquiry Card. It is a super efficient way of sending your requirement to us and then, finally to the manufacturers and vendors. Each product in this edition is numbered and each of the several coupons attached with this magazine for your use provides you with an easy method of satisfying your sourcing needs. All you have to do is specify the number/s of the product of your choice, fill in the details like your name, your companys name and your contact details and send that coupon to us.
So, heres presenting you an edition, which is aimed to be a purchase managers delight. It is a sourcebook, which is bound to make you more resourceful.
