Cement is vital to real estate , housing and infrastructure sectors to drive the overall economic growth of the country. With the market evolving constantly, there are some major challenges plaguing the industry especially procurement landscape. These challenges require innovative solutions to drive efficiency and profitability of the cement industry, in turn positively impacting the real estate and infrastructure sectors.
With no standardized procurement process, and each plant having its own set of suppliers, a fragmented supplier base leads to non-standardization in quality, price, and delivery, which results in higher rejection rates and an increase in tail-end spend.The decentralized procurement process means each plant has its own procurement team which negotiates prices and delivery schedules with the suppliers . This leads to inconsistency in pricing and delivery schedules , making it difficult to manage costs and plan production schedules. The absence of a standardized process for capturing data leads to a lack of key data and information metrics. As decision-makers are not empowered to draw purchase analytics, it leads to a lack of visibility into the procurement process, making it difficult to identify areas for improvement and optimize costs.
A decentralized procurement process for each plant leads to non-standardized contracts . This can lead to non-adherence to contractual obligations, which can result in the termination of contracts and loss of revenue.
