MTN Ghana has received an award from the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS) and the Association of Ghana Industries for its contributions to local procurement. The award was presented during the annual CIPS awards night held in Accra.

The objective of CIPS in Ghana is to make a positive impact on the Ghanaian economy through raising and recognising standards in supply chain processes.

The Ghanain subsidiary of the pan-african telecommunications provider has made various enhancements to the way it does business, transforming its back office operations while rolling out Oracle’s Enterprise Business Suite. End-to-end management of procurement has been improved, from budgeting through to requisition approval, sourcing, and order transmission, using a single ERP system.

Evelyn Sam, General Manager for Procurement Services, MTN Ghana, said: “It is heart-warming to know that our efforts at improving procurement and supply chain practices are being recognized locally.”
