In-depth Procurement Management in the DIY Industry
Overcome the challenges of the DIY industry to secure a competitive advantage
The competitive environment of the do-it-yourself industry is characterized by heavy price pressure and demanding customer requirements – a huge challenge for the supply chains of DIY stores.
To meet these challenges, we optimise your product ranges, technical procurement or category management as needed to achieve significant competitive advantages. By implementing these measures, your procurement organization can make a significant, long-term contribution to increasing your profits.
Optimizing global sourcing
Quality, safety and especially sustainability play major roles in modern DIY, and not just for the budget-minded handyman. Category management and procurement must also meet these requirements, especially when it comes to cheap yet sustainable procurement in Asia.
In our experience, the costs of direct and indirect requirements can be considerably reduced, even under the strictest of requirements. We support our clients in the DIY industry to optimise their procurement management and supply chain, drawing on our many years of experience and comprehensive expertise in global sourcing.
Powerful procurement software results in transparent, efficient procurement
Our e-contor sourcing software can provide optimal, long-term support. The e-contor procurement software and its different modules are used and made available to you during a project.
Many of our clients then opt to continue using it for the duration of the project, practising processes and methods. A number of leading German DIY chains have been successfully working with this application for many years, also making use of our tried and tested tools in their procurement.
