The relationship with its suppliers is a crucial element for the success of any company. It must be profitable at the business level, but should also satisfy quality, transparency and mutual satisfaction standards.
For Enel and the companies of the Enel Group, it is important to attract qualified suppliers, characterized by innovative expertise and attentive to sustainability issues, with which to undertake a collaborative path and create a workflow focused on a common goal. The relationship must be solid and lasting, so to provide added value to commitment and investments.
Supplier selection therefore becomes an important moment of corporate strategy: it is necessary to know how to attract and retain the right companies, in order to make the most of each partnership.
In today’s global competitive scenario, such process may not necessarily be easy. Codensa, the Colombian company of the Enel Group, organized an event to meet with current and potential suppliers, an opportunity to showcase Open Power values and Enel's commitment to safety, innovation and shared value creation.
The meeting, opened by Raúl Vacca, Head of Procurement Colombia, took place on November 15th and saw the participation of key Codensa investment, communication, compliance and security managers. A very representative team that illustrated the advantages that Codensa offers to its suppliers:
- Solid and structured processes
- Development of new competitive solutions
- Growth of investment in Colombia
- Solidity of the energy sector
- Enel's global presence
- Focus on transparency and security.
Furthermore, during the meeting, the evolution of procurement practices and the improvement plan in progress were described, established with the goal to improve the effectiveness of the selection process and to foster an increasingly open communication between Codensa and supplier companies.
The presentation organized by Codensa fits perfectly within the approach towards suppliers shared by the whole Group: the relationship between Enel and its providers is meant to be a real partnership, a collaborative worlkflow that becomes a strategic alliance. Thanks to events like Codensa’s it is possible to lay the foundations for effective communication and work standards, so to foster mutual growth and development.
In the energy sector, the technological transformation opens up new paths every day, while offering new opportunities: Codensa, the Enel Group and the supplying companies are leaders in this scenario, thanks to the quality they express together day after day.
