// INDIRECT PURCHASING
Indirect procurement is equally as valuable as direct procurement but doesn’t usually get managed in the same strategic way. It includes costs such as maintaining/repairing equipment, buying office supplies or acquiring services. It doesn’t add to your bottom line, yet it is fundamental to keeping your day-to-day business operating. Companies who take a strategic approach to their indirect procurement soon realize it can help reduce the negative effect it has on your profits. V-LINE understands the importance of optimizing indirect expenditures and can take over your complete indirect purchasing to help you run your business more smoothly.
