Over the years we have developed our procurement practices making them more sustainable, digitalizing our processes and reducing supplier carbon footprint by purchasing locally, where possible. At Qatar Cool we use an Oracle ERP system to raise purchase orders, circulate digitally for approvals and budget verifications and pay the invoices, making the entire process online and paperless.
Our potential and approved suppliers a have a digital interface called the supplier portal on our website, where they can register to become a supplier of Qatar Cool or manage/update their account with us. When requesting for quotes it is 100% digitally sent to our registered suppliers through the portal or email. The digital quotes are gathered to form a comprehensive analysis and recommendation for the requesting department to select the best match for their needs, before starting the purchase order process.
At Qatar Cool we take the impact of our actions on the environment very seriously, and that of our suppliers too. In all cases we hire local businesses situated in the state and where possible purchase locally made products, reducing our need for international products thus reducing the carbon footprint of shipments. We are continually looking for ways to further improve out procurement practices within our means.
We house a vigorous store and inventory management system within the organization, keeping track of high demand inventory and utilization rates. This allows us to ensure readily available stock but moreover it allows the bulk purchase of high demand items which in turn reduces repetitive procurement practices resulting in further environmental protection and savings.
