Private Equity – Consulting for Procurement & Supply Chain Management

Consulting to Promote Growth and Reduce Costs

We support investors throughout the entire investment process.

Private equity investors have known for a long time that financial engineering alone is no longer enough to significantly increase the value of their portfolio companies. Growth and cost reduction are the effective ways to increase value in their portfolios. Implementing the relevant programmes is expensive and usually cannot be done with internal capacity alone.

For many years, we have supported both market-leading, globally active British investors and medium-sized investors that concentrate on Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We support them throughout the entire investment process, from due diligence and operational value creation through to exit opportunities:



We support you with developing growth and cost reduction strategies

We identify and assess the procurement and supply chain potential for both individual holding companies and cross-portfolio firms, developing it conceptually and providing significant support during implementation. Our consultants in international offices provide valuable benchmarks using our database, contribute practical and methodological knowledge and project management experience and provide operative, pragmatic support for the procurement teams of portfolio companies through to supplier negotiation and allocation.

Using our 360° Supply Intelligence approach, we support both growth and cost reduction strategies for our customers:



Procurement is the primary requirement to improving profitability and reducing working capital.

– Material costs are divided into direct and indirect costs

– High individual potential is usually subject to 20-40% out of scope costs

– Optimization levers range from renegotiation programmes to cross-functional value analysis

– 4-6% savings on the entire procurement volume are realistic



*Industry output profitability is the major driver

Total savings achieved are typically between 4% and 6%.


12 years of experience in the private equity sector

We have been working with leading private equity investors for over 12 years. In total, our optimization programmes have increased the value of our private equity clients’ investment portfolios by more than €1.2bn.


The results:

  • Sustainable, measurable savings on the entire procurement volume, increasing your profits
  • Determination of the value added by procurement and implementation of a state-of-the-art procurement organization
  • Adoption of best practices and improved level of compliance

Thomas Pfeiffer, Head of Product Development 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.“
