Purchasing: serving to increase profit
The market for services has changed rapidly: a high level of transparency, immense price-driven competition and a short lifespan for competitive advantages. Purchasing these immaterial services is now difficult to distinguish from purchasing industrial or material products. Long-term customer relationships are at risk due to factors such as e-procurement, regular tendering, etc. In addition, for many service companies purchasing is not consistently centralised (rather than dedicated purchasing); typically, the purchasing process is the responsibility of the specialist departments. However, cross-departmental purchasing is very inefficient and cost-intensive. Alongside staff costs, the cost structure is shaped by classic equipment costs and overheads (IT, marketing, energy, facilities, etc.). In the Kloepfel team’s experience, the savings potential for service providers is up to 20%. Kloepfel Consulting will help you to gain sustainable economic advantages through systematic optimisation of these costs!
