Tejari is expanding its portfolio to include consulting services for its members. The company will introduce its new strategic procurement services at an exclusive seminar on May 29 at the Emirates Tower Hotel in Dubai. The event will highlight how Tejari members can build a cost-effective, centrally managed and automated procurement strategy, and how they can achieve the performance and supplier relationships that will most benefit them. The new consulting services will allow for performance analysis of member companies and promote cost-cutting measures, according to Terjari. These will include a spend analysis service to identify departmental spending, as well as a data cleansing service for improved spend visibility. Its vendor/supplier-based optimisation service will show how many suppliers organisations have, and which are the most important. The procurement tool implementation service integrates with ERP, and helps further automate procurement processes. And when members are having difficulty finding something specific in the market, Tejari consultants will help find qualified sources for that item, as part of its strategic sourcing service. Dubai’s Department of Health and Medical Services (DOHMS) boasts it has achieved significant savings and increased efficiency by 40%, since becoming the first government department to join Tejari. Around 60% to 70% of DOHMS pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and consumables are bought online with Tejari, and the department claims to have since eliminated hidden costs and streamlined the number of suppliers it has. The department now looks set to be one of the first organisations to utilise the Tejari consulting service. “DOHMS is considering expanding our relationship with Tejari to include the possibility of contracting Tejari procurement professionals to develop and deliver a performance assessment framework and annual exercise of all DOHMS-preferred suppliers to further improve service,” said Mohammed Juma, director of purchasing and contracts department, DOHMS.
