Every industry has its own challenges

What our clients say about us

Thanks to the the consultants' rapid and pragmatic support and industry-specific expertise, we were able to achieve considerable in-year effects through technical levers despite starting the project in the current financial year - exceeding the previous year's level many times over. Rapid generation and evaluation of disruptive ideas, consistent follow-up on initiatives and a strong focus on implementation in the cross-functional team made this result possible.

Robert Suvak Head of Purchasing

We launched the joint project with INVERTO at a time of very volatile markets and soaring prices. The goal was first to improve transparency about our cost structures and the relevant price components of the individual buying items in order to realize price improvements on the market in a second step. Thanks to the strong professional support from INVERTO and cooperative collaboration with our team, we were able to achieve most goals we set and anchor the improvements in the company.

Thomas Schwarz CEO

In a cross-functional project, INVERTO not only strengthened the resilience of our semiconductor supply chain, but above all the tactical cooperation between sales and procurement. In close cooperation with HELLA's top management, client-specific programs were developed to close bottlenecks. In times of dynamic procurement markets, these help us to fulfill our contracts as agreed and to improve service quality overall.

Heiko Schäfer Vice President Automotive Sales

INVERTO successfully supported the implementation of a global procurement program across EMEA, addressing a broad spectrum of indirect spend categories. INVERTO’s deep category expertise in Energy, Packaging, Logistics, Construction & Services, and MRO helped our teams to exceed their savings targets by a significant margin. One of the success factors was the great collaboration between INVERTO and our teams – results were delivered hand in hand in a collaborative and constructive way. In addition to delivering savings, INVERTO also helped accelerate the enablement agenda for our people. I would seek INVERTO's support again for any future procurement cost reduction and transformation projects.

Paolo Clivati CPO Indorama Ventures PET

INVERTO reviewed the taskforce's existing procurement process and ensured end-to-end compliance. By supporting the taskforce, for the procurement of semiconductors, INVERTO has contributed to Jungheinrich remaining capable of production, despite massive capacity bottlenecks in the semiconductor market. [...] A very good cooperation in an extremely difficult procurement environment.

Thomas Alberg Head of Commodity Electric and Electronic, Jungheinrich

In a very successful project, INVERTO supported us in not only achieving our savings targets in the period, but even exceeding them. With the help of extensive auctions, we were able to stimulate competition between our suppliers and succeeded in breaking up previous structures. We were also able to win over new suppliers and integrate them into our portfolio.

Michal Svátek Director Global Continuous Improvement

INVERTO succeeded in engaging critical stakeholders and generating significant value in our joint project. The use and introduction of innovative methods, such as e-auctions and index-based pricing models, made a decisive contribution to the project's success. In addition, INVERTO made a valuable contribution to sustainably developing procurement activities and setting up a centrally managed purchasing organization for the future.

Matthias Ernst European Scrap Purchasing Director

INVERTO uses excellent consultants by the bank at Vaillant; your team works in a very structured and fact-oriented manner and has understood how to convince our organization of our project in a short time. I congratulate you on this team.

DR. Norbert Schiedeck Managing Director, Vaillant Group

In an interactive sales training with a high degree of practical relevance, our sales staff learned how to approach negotiations like buyers. This change of perspective has decisively changed our sales negotiations. Thanks to INVERTO, our employees now feel better prepared and can draw on professional methods and tactics to achieve better negotiation results - a decisive step in the further development of our sales.

Maryne Lemvik CEO

Our project with INVERTO has delivered a great result. In addition to the savings generated, which even exceeded the original project goal, our procurement organisation was professionalised and the procurement team trained. INVERTO always proceeded with the necessary pragmatism and sense of proportion; and that with the very highest quality of results.

Harald Ganster CEO

INVERTO has helped D.O.R.C. with the professionalization of the procurement organization and accompanied the supplier negotiations for various products and services. By implementing new processes and working with procurement staff, the achieved savings enhance sustainability and will result in a more profitable organization.

Marc Lamure Director

INVERTO has proven to be a strong partner for KION in the implementation of procurement potentials!

Christian Harm Head of Corporate Procurement

INVERTO delivered a very good project and understood how to reconcile different interests. It was also about leaving the comfort zone. It was very helpful that our board strongly supported this project. Together we were able to exceed our savings targets and now feel equipped to face the challenges of our market.

Jürgen Neitsch Head of Procurement

INVERTO has been instrumental in transforming procurement at LEONI. The team has strengthened the positioning of procurement in the organization, increased its effectiveness, and at the same time realized cost reductions above plan.

Dr. Frank Hiller Board of Directors, LEONI AG
