More quality in indirect purchasing In Germany, about 17 million people work in offices, whose productivity is one of the core factors for successful business. The business magazine C.ebra (Zeitschrift für effiziente Beschaffung rund um Büro und Arbeitswelt) and the online platform cebra.biz are focused on purchasing managers and commercial decision-makers in companies, public authorities and institutions. C.ebra conveys know-how, provides work aid, presents the latest developments and trends, offers competent decision-making support and shows innovative solutions for the requirements of the modern, permanently changing office world. Special emphasis is placed on sustainable issues. The competent and up-to-date reports focus on the market environment, the importance of the specialised trade as a supplier for purchasing and the situation of buyers in the entire procurement process. In addition, detailed practical reports focus intensively on the world of users. C.ebra sees itself as a central information and communication platform for all relevant market participants. The aim is to establish a network between manufacturers/suppliers, traders and purchasing companies/authorities in order to support a qualitative benchmarking process in the long term and thus enable better quality in purchasing. The product spectrum of C.ebra ranges from C-items such as office supplies to paper, office equipment and office furnishings to office technology. Other topics relevant to purchasing in this environment are occupational health management (hygiene, prevention) and occupational safety as well as corporate services (such as mobility management, travel management, facility management, catering). A consistent view is taken of the entire process at the office workplace as well as the subsequent business-relevant processes.
