Strategic Sourcing Guide to Automobile Upholstry Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Purchase as well as Automobile Upholstry procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Suppliers are disrupting business models with new products and services that impact supplier selection and price benchmarking activities for category buyers.

Increased availability of options both in terms of suppliers and new propositions from suppliers is also influencing the procurement trends for Automobile Upholstry and improving leverage for buyers in some cases.

Traditionally procurement functions had a greater say in deciding the specifics of orders. However, recent trends indicate that all departments of a company, even drivers are included in the decision making and feedback loop. This creates opportunities to benefit for cross learnings but also increases the co-ordination and conflict management tasks of category managers.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.

Automobile Upholstry Procurement Best Practices

Automobile Upholstry procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Automobile Upholstry procurement strategy.

For example, Vehicle replacement cycles is a mechanism used to calculate maintenance and depreciation-related costs associated with a vehicle. Service providers perform such calculations on behalf of buyers. Vehicle replacement cycles enable end-users to follow safety measures and minimize operating costs. These are calculated after a certain mileage or specific years of use. Furthermore, buyers should engage with service providers that offer analysis with respect to fuel consumed as well as provide maintenance and repair services.

Buyers should engage with service providers that utilize technologies to generate reports with respect to fleet condition and services delivered.

The adoption of advanced technologies such as telematics and IVMS enables buyers to track vehicles, increase fuel efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and increase cost savings. These technologies ensure buyers safety and increase the efficiency of their fleet.
