Streamlined for sustainability
Using Simplicit.e, our integrated etrading software, saves a mountain of paperwork throughout the buying process, with obvious benefits to the environment. Consolidating suppliers also helps the environment because we can supply all your packaging needs and plan a supply chain that minimises vehicle movements.
Consolidating Schneider Electric’s supply base simplified the purchasing process and reduced costs.
One of the of key factors for a lean supply chain is to rationalise the supplier base. Many companies are working towards a reduction of their supplier base in order to reduce the total cost of ownership of some of their categories.
Information at your fingertips
We can ensure complete oversight of a very cost and time efficient operation. One that is also much more sustainable.
