Business Networking: A Process-oriented Framework

Item Type Book Section

The company CONMAT1, a wholesaler in the building sector, has optimized its internal business processes over the course of the past few years. What was once a fully integrated company was then split into five customer-based or product-based business areas. Today, each business area implements its own goals in separately managed procurement and sales processes. The finance and logistics processes for all the business areas are handled jointly by the CONMAT Service Company at a shared service center. Based on the figures relating to the period prior to the reorganization, procurement, sales and logistics now operate considerably more effectively and efficiently than before.
