How global sourcing gets more successful

Many Western European companies still have the opinion that they may have the following problems if they would buy from low cost countries: High planning costs, high logistics costs, long delivery times, and high information demand due to communication problems.

Larger Western European companies have demonstrated that these problems could be eliminated. However, to eliminate these problems you need to follow a professional process in order to evaluate the supplier markets in the East. In addition, supplier qualification and certification processes, but also specific project actions, are extremely important.

The suppliers, which are possibly qualified, must be selected carefully by hand. They should be approved only if the Western European quality and information standards are fulfilled. Personal supplier qualification processes and audits at the supplier’s location should also be completed. Only if these conditions are fulfilled, then those suppliers can be accepted as a business partner.

Detailed and informative company profiles of the suppliers are the basis for the start of specific projects with Western European clients.

During the project phase, efficient project controlling, but also appropriate project supporting actions are “a must”. Only if you do this you can make sure that all project requirements regarding costs, deadlines, and quality will be fulfilled according to Western European standards.

Our goal

Mr. Kuzio always says that “our goal is that our Western European clients cannot find any quality differences from Western European suppliers, if they are working with Eastern or Asien suppliers which we recommend”.
