Indirect Spend Consulting

Achieve Effective, Long-term Savings in Your Indirect Procurement

In our experience, procurement for indirect spend and non-tradable goods or services typically has a high potential for savings. When focusing on reducing costs in your company, indirect purchasing is often neglected. Optimization makes a noticeable difference and often improves profits within a very short timeframe.

Our experience of more than 1,300 projects in indirect purchasing makes us a strong partner with years of international expertise. In our experience, the greatest potential lies in technical equipment, facility management/MRO consumables and logistics. We specialize in these areas and can offer extensive knowledge and best practice solutions.

The challenge is often decentralising procurement

In indirect procurement, processes are often managed by individual departments rather than being centrally directed by the procurement department. Departments such as marketing, logistics, facility management and IT mostly source their required goods and services independently, detached from the procurement department. This means that procurement competence often remains untapped, as it is either included in the procurement process too late or not at all.

There is a lack of indirect procurement capacity in many companies, especially in terms of developing and introducing new, efficient procurement processes.

We help you to reduce your procurement costs for the long term and offer you efficient models to develop your organisation and achieve better cooperation between procurement and other departments.

 

How do we do it?

 

Potential analysis

Depending on whether you wish to optimize specific areas or put your entire indirect procurement to the test, we analyse your indirect requirements and the related procurement processes in your organization. This analysis enables us to create transparency and develop a clear demand structure. We provide you with clear results, show you the potential for improvement and use customised solutions to bring your indirect procurement up to best practice levels.

Building and implementing standardized processes

Based on the results of the potential analysis, we work with you to develop an optimal strategy and implement it for you. In order to introduce more efficient processes, we involve all relevant departments and managers in your company and create an organization that ensures long-term savings. The processes are designed in close cooperation with your employees and implemented in your company by means of workshops and simulations.

Getting an optimal supplier portfolio


Based on the transparent demand structure, we develop additional appropriate measures to reduce costs. For example, considerable savings can be achieved by pooling demand and developing synergies. We conduct tenders for you, develop negotiation strategies and carry out negotiations for you with relevant suppliers and service providers. The results of our projects are contracts with suppliers, which permanently secure your target savings and optimum quality standards.

 

The results:

  • Rapid savings on the entire indirect procurement volume, increasing your profits
  • Sustainable integration of best practice processes
  • Adding value to indirect procurement

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.“
