Exclusive interview with Umniah in this month’s Business Chief Middle East
Over the past 13 years, Umniah has grown to be the third largest telecommunications company in Jordan, with a market share of over 30% and more than 4mn subscribers. This is in no small part thanks to efficient supply chain management and viewing procurement as an essential strategic function.
Business Chief spoke to the telco’s head of supply chain, Ahmad Almubuslat, whose wealth of experience in procurement has led to Umniah getting better deals and passing on time and cost savings to the end user.
“Umniah believes in the value of procurement and the value our team brings to the organisation through gaining better offers, time to market and margins.”
Almubuslat also talked about maintaining healthy long-term supplier relations as a key to Umniah’s growth. “We believe in and support out suppliers… we’ve managed to develop two medium-sized suppliers to become huge, competitive companies in Joran. We also develop relationships with manufacturers,” he explained.
