German term or phrase:gezielte Beratung
Job description for buyers
In Ergänzung ihrer Beschaffungsfunktion sollen die Einkäufer auch auf Unternehmensebene anwendungstechnische Erfahrungen sammeln. Damit soll erreicht werden, durch gezielte Beratung schon frühzeitig auf den zukünftigen Bedarf einzuwirken und einen Rationalisierungseffekt zu realisieren. I understand that the buyers can do their job better if they have experience of the application/process, but am unsure what could be meant by gezielte Beratung. By providing buyers with specific information/instruction about the process they will be in a better position to purchase the right items at the right time?
Explanation: This looks like a set of general guidelines for employee training policy. The procurement staff should have extensive experience within the company of what is used where, and so on, so that they can give well-founded advice when asked "what should be ordered for a specific purpose".
