IT Procurement Consulting
Long-term Cost Optimization in IT Procurement
The transformation to digitisation, the safe and rapid supply of large amounts of data, innovative applications and new virtual services make IT management extremely challenging, with digital changes affecting almost every department. The result is complex and specific IT needs, from technical production to finance to marketing. At the same time, there is a massive shortage in specialist IT knowledge, making it difficult to keep costs low and efficient alongside ensuring high quality, fast service and data security.
We provide the support you need to overcome these challenges
Through our long-standing project experience, we have built comprehensive expertise in the procurement of IT services. With our support, you can promote innovation and increase performance in your company, even with a lack of resources and skilled staff. We can also help you to improve quality and speed up the provision of information and services.
We support you through technological progress
We provide methodological support for selection and systematisation as part of innovation decisions. We create the basis for complex, strategic decisions such as hosting on your own servers or cloud computing. In addition to reducing IT procurement costs and ensuring efficient procurement, we can also optimize your IT procurement processes.
How do we do it?
Firstly, we identify your potential IT savings. To do this, we analyse all technical requirements and procurement processes in the context of your overall organization and conduct interviews with individual departments. We then examine these requirements and their specifications and work with you to check your existing requirements. We provide you with tangible results, identify your strengths and improvement potential and explain what levers we can use to best develop your potential.
Functional description of specifications
We help you to standardize the specifications of your IT requirements. A functional description of the specifications creates greater scope for decision-making, which enables a comprehensive comparison of the costs and benefits of various manufacturers and service providers.
When reducing procurement costs in IT, optimal performance, constant service and data security are always paramount. With the help of our specially developed e-contor software, we carry out tenders and negotiations with these aspects in mind. We will support you right up to the implementation of your new processes and/or until you have completed the transition to your new suppliers.
If necessary, we also optimize your internal procurement processes during the implementation phase. These new processes considerably increase the level of coordination between your Procurement and IT departments in terms of fulfilling their individual requirements. To do this, we integrate all of the relevant members of your company and introduce the processes in coordination with your overall organization. These are then established in your company through workshops, training and simulations.
