Why take this accelerated training on indirect purchases?

Join us on June 10 for this training session to learn more about indirect costs, which can represent over 40% of total business expenditures in the industrial sector and as much as 81% at service sector organizations.

Indirect procurement refers to all purchases not directly integrated into the product or service sold but that are needed for the company to maintain its day-to-day operations, whereas direct procurement represents all purchases that make up the product or service sold, including the procurement of raw materials, components or even software.

Expand your international market share with methods that increase your products’ competitiveness on the export market, by addressing costs that are not always well understood and for which practical solutions do exist.

For your company to remain competitive internationally, each of your business expenses must be managed wisely and made where the opportunities to create value are most likely to be realized.
