How We Add Value
It is important to us that you are happy with the goods when you receive them. Goods have to be in perfect condition. MMCS procurement inspects every shipment and only sign its release when we are satisfied with quality and content. MMCS Procurement is committed to delivering to their clients, significant cost savings and to promote efficiency and quality in the goods we supply, and the service to our customers.
Finding the right supplier is a vital factor among thousands of them for almost everything product related. A thorough background check of these suppliers and determining if they are trading companies, manufacturers – or even real at all is key. We pre-verify and thoroughly verify suppliers as well as assess each factory’s pricing, lead times, product quality and prior track record.
PURCHASING & NEGOTIATING
We are a reliable and efficient supplier sourcing hub for various products for our clients, working with your required branding, specific labelling and facilitating logistics from South Africa to ship to most parts of the world. Our clients do highly recommend working with MMCS Procurement and to continue the supplier relationship for years to come because of the value they get. We maintain happy clients because their orders are successfully delivered.
Proper completion and adequate legal purchase documentation are key in the procurement process. Basic proforma invoice and receipt are not adequate enough to legally protect your rights or your business. Your orders are highly considered in the negotiating process to get the best mix of price/quality/reliability. Our experience dealing with suppliers and regulatory bodies helps us to know how things work.
The quality of the product is key as inventory or capital assets are an important component of the company’s financial statements.That’s why we do quality control from supplier selection to goods dispatch. Quality Control is an ongoing process which starts the moment you choose a supplier. This can be challenging as problem could step from the onset of choosing the supplier to the order delivery. Quality control is not there to fix problems, but to alert you to potential problems. The earlier you find the problems the quicker you can take corrective action.
PACKAGING & LOGISTICS
We package all our clients’goods carefully and precisely, ensuring they will reach you in a perfect condition. We take into consideration the nature of the goods, mode of transport, security and protection against damage or loss in transit when packing the goods. Commodity packaging issued, supervised and implemented must also meet the regulation standard and law.
