DMG MORI receives BME innovation award 2019

Bielefeld // A high accolade for digital excellence: DMG MORI has been honored with this year’s innovation award of the German Association for Supply Chain Management, Procurement and Logistics (Bundesverband Materialwirtschaft, Einkauf und Logistik; BME). The award was presented to the company today for its successful purchasing and logistics management in front of some 2,000 guests in Berlin.

"We are proud of this special recognition of the digital transformation and the realignment of our global purchasing strategy. Together with strong partners, we are driving our power of innovation forward,” said Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board. “DMG MORI’s stable technology partners and suppliers are a significant factor in this success and we would like to give our thanks to them."

The award-winning concept impressed the judges with its more efficient processes resulting from automated order transactions, a global matrix organisation with regional purchasing units, and integrated IT solutions. The entire value chain is now networked. The focus areas are internet-ready products and data-based services. To set up a completely automated procurement process, DMG MORI has also integrated financial accounting. This means the entire process – from the order request to payment of the invoice – can be digitally mapped. Consequently, demand forecasts can also be better achieved and cooperation with suppliers can be organized even more efficiently. All these measures play a role in sustainably increasing the contribution that purchasing makes to the company’s success.

DMG MORI is actively pushing ahead with the future fields of automation, digitalization and additive manufacturing for its customers. It therefore goes without saying that its own purchasing department has completely digitally aligned its internal structures and processes. For at DMG MORI, innovation and change management go hand-in-hand.
