DWTC: Innovating a sustainable digital shift in procurement
(Norwich, UK, 13/11/2019)
The Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) features in this month’s Business Chief MEA.
The Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) has been a landmark since the construction of the iconic Sheikh Rashid Tower (SRT) in 1979. Not only was it one of the first skyscrapers in Dubai, but held the title of the tallest in the Middle East until 1999.
To clarify the way DWTC functions, Jason Tranter, Director of Contracts, shares the role that Procurement and Contracts (P&C) plays in ensuring the facility is always efficient and run an innovative manner.
we have a vast number of products and services that need to be acquired across several different timelines for a variety of clients, both in-house and offsite.” Despite the complexity of the operations at the DWTC, Tranter emphasises that the company is constantly striving for transparency and innovation, in the hope of promoting a new perception of procurement, at a time when the department can often be considered a “roadblock” to business functions.
“We want to remove this concept of P&C being a roadblock, and not only become fully integrated into the company, but also have a real impact on its bottom line. As we have progressed through our digital transformation, this is beginning to become a reality,” says Tranter.
