Global Procurement

WHY would you consider entering into a Global Procurement project with IGC (www.IGCpartners.com) ? 
 
If you are a major Global Company, …but buying in and branding locally, in small volumes in each country, then you might want to consider the benefits of :

• buying in globally at consolidated prices
• while still having a local supplier who knows local market regulations, speaks the language and can offer local services and knowledge.

The immediate benefits are visible savings through:

• Order volume consolidation
• Direct orders from Far East (no local middleman)
• Selected choice and harmonized messaging
• time savings for Brand Managers
• standardized order Process System
 
What IGC proposes to your company :

• Mondial Gifts in Belgium, representing IGC, proposes on regular basis new items to your company HQ.
• your company HQ selects the items which can be proposed via IGC to the individual countries.
• In each country, the local IGC member visits the  local your company branch and proposes and explains the new products.
• The branches have a time window to place a firm order to the local IGC member.
• IGC consolidates all quantities to have a better price.
• IGC delivers the goods directly to the individual branches in each country.
• The local IGC partner invoices directly to the local your company branch.


Advantages for your company :

• your company HQ controls the quality and look & feel of the items used by all the branches.
• your company HQ controls pricing to avoid that some branches base their judgement more on non-objective grounds.
• Individual countries pay much less for the same items compared to local individual purchasing.
• your company HQ has no work invoicing global purchases.
• your company HQ does not stay with unpaid goods on stock.
• All branches have a local IGC contact person in their country,  who speaks their language, knows their markets, restrictions and regulations.
