Procurement Consulting for Electronics and the electrotechnical industry

Procurement & Supply Chain Consulting for the Electronics and Electrotechnical Industry

The electronics and electrotechnical industry requires finesse – both in terms of procurement and supply chain management.

The electronics industry is part of a complex global market environment. The market for manufacturing and processing individual electronic components and parts is almost unmanageable. There are many different specifications, which make getting a comprehensive comparison of suppliers, the required specifications and the price a complex task. The amount of quotations and details needed to assemble an electronic component makes it difficult to identify the best supplier for your needs. Selecting production sites and sales markets also plays an important role in avoiding high transport and logistics costs.

Suppliers of electronic components for control and regulating technology often lack transparency in terms of the actual specifications required. As a result, overspecified electronic components can be used at unnecessary cost. The smallest details are often the keys to reducing procurement costs. The requirements of fast-moving markets are becoming ever more complex, making sustainable optimization even more difficult.

This requires constant monitoring, and there are often not enough resources available in core procurement activities. If there has been a supplier base for decades, there is usually little openness towards new candidates. As a specialist consultancy, we know the market and the right levers. We reduce complexity and optimize your procurement and supply chain for the long term.

 

How do we achieve optimization?

Optimizing procurement: analysing and unlocking potential

First, we carry out a potential analysis, analysing individual product categories and building structures to channel your demand and achieve sustainable transparency in your product categories. Our procurement and supply chain consulting experience and extensive market knowledge means that we can quickly identify where and how you can make considerable savings in procurement. We show you suitable sources of supply and unlock the potential by managing your tenders and negotiations. We provide support for you until the new procurement processes are put in place and your requirements are operational in series production.

We carefully analyse your needs and resolve any ambiguity in terms of individual components, specifications and composition. This allows overspecified items that unnecessarily increase the product price to be identified and replaced with a more suitable component. In our experience, this can achieve considerable savings.

Optimizing your supply chain

Optimizing your supply chain: creating a transparent network between procurement, production and sales

Improving the performance of your supply chain is another important part of optimizing costs and securing the sustainable competitiveness of your electronics or electrotechnical company. Components manufacturers or suppliers serve clients all over the world, and, if the production site is not close to the client, logistics costs can be significant. By coordinating the purchasing, production and sales sites, electronics and electrotechnical manufacturers and suppliers have a complex global network. As experts in supply chain management, we can optimize the efficiency and performance across your entire supply chain and harmonise the organization, processes and logistics for maximum performance.

 

The results:

  • High-performance supply chain throughout production, from procurement to the customer
  • Complete transparency throughout the procurement process
  • Long-term savings, which make a difference to your balance sheet

 

 

We support you in creating transparency in the procurement markets, as well as in the assembly of your electric components; and achieve substantial savings together with your team!

What our clients say about us


Thomas Pfeiffer, Head of Product Development at willhaben.at

„Together with INVERTO, we have achieved a result that we did not think possible at the beginning of the project. The overall package of tender preparation, service provider workshops and rounds of negotiations at top management level has raised our hosting landscape to a new level of price performance. I thoroughly recommend working with INVERTO.“

Dr. Jürgen Wickl, Managing Director of Styria Media IT

„By preparing a functional specification, we managed to advertise requirements in a tailored way. INVERTO’s orientation towards precise customer requirements and benchmarks as well as professional negotiations has contributed significantly to the success of this project. The close involvement of employees in this structured tender process is an additional bonus, and something which will benefit us in years to come.“

Siniša Mitrović, mag.oec., Managing director, Styria Tiskara Zagreb

„Due to the flexibility of the team, we managed to receive additional offers from suppliers and hence increase competition between existing suppliers. Through centralization of our former pick-up locations in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina we managed to reduce the operational work for our employees. Furthermore, this centralization led to a huge additional revenue from our waste paper business. The project work with INVERTO was very professional and made this great result possible.“

Marc Lamure, Director, Montagu Private Equity Associates LLP

„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.“

Erwan Quemener, Purchasing Director, Chassis Brakes International

„INVERTO helped us in raising undreamed-of sources of savings in both direct material and indirect material areas. They did not only identify these potentials but they supported us in the implementation phase with a great professionalism.“

Nick Gerrard, CFO, MID Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust

„INVERTO’s market and product knowledge have been invaluable in helping the Trust deliver substantial cost savings in a short space of time. They have the ability to talk the clinicians language, optimise the procurement process and deliver a result the trust could not have achieved itself.“

Bart Stubbe, Vice President of Purchasing LINPAC Group

„INVERTO are assisting LINPAC since early 2008 in transitioning from a decentralised to a category purchasing structure, bringing sourcing expertise, skilled resources, technology and methodology to recognise, create and release value to the company.“
