We are your one stop shop for all your purchasing needs. Our purchasing managers and assistants evaluate our numerous suppliers, negotiate contracts, review product quality and coordinate procurement activities, ensuring the efficient acquisition of goods at fair prices.
They advise our valued customers on the products to purchase, maintain communication with vendors, track orders and maintain accurate purchase records.
To ensure you or your organization purchases quality products, our purchasing assistants provide information on the various brands of products that are available in the market.
If our client is buying for a university, for example, our assistant may use his/her knowledge of stationery products to advise our client on the best products to use. When you place purchase requisitions, our assistant reviews them for completeness and accuracy. Lastly If a requisition is inaccurate -- perhaps if you order an unusually high number of copier paper -- it is our assistant’s job to investigate the issue before contacting with our manufacture.
Monitoring Contractor Performance

Our assistants keep us and our clients updated on the performance of various suppliers, often recommending appropriate actions -- such as contract terminations -- against underperforming vendors.
