Contribution in Green Procurement Initiative
In the recently held ”Express, Logistics & Supply Chain Conclave” at Mumbai, the nomination submitted by SKF- GPU India team has won the award in ”Best Green Procurement Initiative of the Year” category.
The nomination primarily contained activities done in Purchasing over the last few years to eliminate papers used in printing Purchase orders and Contracts using 6 Sigma approach.
The first one was a BB project by Ravindra Shende & team to improve the efficiency in Purchase department’s internal activity. This led to creation of Automated PO communication system and eliminated hard copy printing, moving them all over for approvals, mailing to suppliers and storage.
In the similar lines another GB project was completed by Gajanan Ogale & team to automate the process of Annual Contracts & Quarterly updates.
Both projects are well accepted and successfully used by buyers for over 3 years. Now these tools have become the backbone of the India Purchasing to support PO & Contract releasing efficiently.
Both projects were implemented with active support from Ecotech team. Kindly convey our sincere thanks and appreciation to entire Ecotech team who worked on these projects.
