what we doPurchasing
Purchasing typically handles a substantial share of a company’s total costs which makes it an important strategic area with major bottom-line impact.
The increased level of outsourcing, global sourcing and shorter product life cycles has made purchasing an even more critical area for success. Montell & Partners offers purchasing services within a broad range, from setting a company’s purchasing and sourcing strategy to hands-on assistance such as spend analysis and supplier negotiations.
Capturing Purchasing Potentials
Purchasing typically handles up to 60-70% of a company’s costs, making cost reducing initiatives essential to drive business potentials. Capturing purchasing potentials can be achieved through cost reductions, training of the purchasing organisation, improvement of processes and organisations, and enhancing supplier relations and development. Montell & Partners works in close cooperation with the customer to ensure the project’s successful execution and internal buy-in of the improvement work.
We can support you in capturing purchasing potentials by:
- Strategy development
- Cost rationalization projects
- Category management
- Supplier relationship development
- Supplier evaluation and negotiations
- Risk management
- Project management of important purchasing projects
