Procurement & Supply Chain Consulting for the Process Industry
Overtake your process industry competition by developing your own standards
The process industry is complex: it is constantly changing and is affected by changing individual customer requirements. Even strong, highly qualified procurement departments struggle to optimize procurement, securing lower prices and making the process more efficient. Extensive customer specifications reduce the amount of flexibility available to buyers when using materials for production and supplier specifications provide hardly any alternative options, making it difficult to switch. In addition, rapid technological developments are only intensifying competitive conditions in the process industry.
We provide the support you need to face these challenges. Become less dependent on your suppliers and secure cost savings in your procurement. Our consultants have many years of experience in the industry and work with many well-known chemical groups and pharmaceuticals, packaging and food manufacturers on their procurement and supply chain management. We will work with you to carry out your procurement and supply chain activities and your production-side and related processes.
How do we do it?
Process and product range optimization
After a comprehensive analysis of your manufacturing requirements and the existing production requirements, we use the results to strategically develop new procurement approaches and processes and implement them closely alongside your existing product development and manufacturing practices. The new processes will be integrated into your company, with your procurement becoming more integral to the company’s success and being strengthened for the long term by the close links created by technology.
Creating your own standards
Creating your own standards and specifications for products to be purchased and technical facilities is the most significant way for your procurement to achieve strong positioning and reduce your dependence on suppliers. In order to do this, we closely analyse your process design, which specifications of materials can be used by your facilities and how these can be purchased both efficiently and cost effectively throughout the procurement process.
Having your own specifications can considerably increase the procurement volume of individual materials, saving you a substantial amount of money. Your procurement also gains in buying power, which would be difficult to achieve for process manufacturers without standards and specifications. INVERTO uses its specialist expertise to create the necessary steps between technology and procurement. Our knowledge and experience of more than 150 industry initiatives means that we not only know the technical and product-specific challenges you face, we also know the solutions. We have already achieved average savings of 16% for our process industry clients.
