How are you developing efficiency and insight when Requesting and Ordering Services (ROS)?
Ordering and following up the purchase of services have for long been a challenge. Services such as consulting services, marketing related services, cleaning services, etc. are often requested by ”needers” (an employee that doesn’t necessarily belong to the “procurement” organization or acts as a professional buyer). Demanding user friendly yet structured ways to make requests and follow up on company policy compliance. Requiring supplier insight ensuring quality, performance and SLA (service level agreements) follow through. During this session you will learn from Katy with many years experiences within procurement. You will also learn from the peer group joining this session.
To be discussed;
- How do your needers request services today?
- What are the biggest challenges you are facing when the needers request and order services?
- How do you ensure CSR (including local buying), possible related company policies when requesting and ordering services?
- Has the past crisis changed the way services are requested today?
- How do you receive these services, including quality, performance, SLA? How do the suppliers report on services performed?
- What are the biggest challenges in verifying that the services are being delivered according to the order?

Theme Discussion: Repeat
Once again, let us repeat – at an EBG Summit you are not “networking” via a chat function. You are meeting people face to face online that have chosen to join the same session as you. You share an interest – you have a level of understanding of the topic. And you are able to speak freely and without stress. You know when you ask a question in the chat – perhaps get an answer. And then have a follow up question? This is not a conference/event/summit like that (even though we do have a chat of course).
EBG | Network spend countless hours connecting you with each other. Since 2021 we can also offer you to stay connected after an EBG summit via EBG | Community. At no extra cost. Making an EBG Summit the possible beginning of long lasting experience exchange.
Register now and EBG look forward to connecting you with like minded!
