Ever since NIRO was established in 2006, its member companies have been working towards creating a common purchasing strategy. Many purchasing managers and buying agents have joined countless negotiating groups to spearhead the push for a select number of topics - spanning a comprehensive range from data acquisition to negotiations and the conclusion of framework agreements.
The Task Force Purchasing was set up to present results and arrive at joint decisions. The close cooperation of this work group produced attractive framework agreements with various suppliers that afford the member companies of NIRO a host of purchasing advantages. When selecting their suppliers, NIRO puts the aspects of reliable partnership and exceptional service front and centre.
NIRO has also made it their priority to promote the latest innovation of electronic procurement: The introduction of e-procurement platforms is particularly beneficial to small and medium-sized companies as they offer them such singular benefits as transparent processes and security thanks to guaranteed net prices. What is more, these platforms offer added value with their electronic and streamlined approval and budgeting processes.
