Procurement Optimization and Supply Chain Performance Improvement
Our service promise goes beyond short-term savings.
The INVERTO 360° supply intelligence approach integrates all four relevant dimensions of decision-making and is based on a balanced mix of all objectives in procurement and supply chain management.
With our approach we:
- Reduce costs
- Mitigate risks
- Drive innovation & growth
- Strengthen business relationships
Procurement and supply chain management require a new mindset. This is what we implement in our clients organisation to achieve significant competitive advantages for them.
Even if a company has done well in driving forward cost optimization, it is no longer enough to focus on this aspect alone. Instead of this one dimensional objective, the task now is to increase value for the company.
To achieve this, procurement and supply chain management have to serve as a link between company and suppliers. Strategic cooperation with suppliers takes on an increasingly prominent role, as does its intensified integration in the company’s own value added chains. However, this also means that supply chains become more complex and international; increasing the risks for the company. It’s crucial that this greater complexity is managed properly.
The scope of our procurement and supply chain consulting services depends on the needs of our clients, from reducing procurement and logistics costs to risk management, optimizing processes and procurement outsourcing.
We deliver more than short-term savings. We effectively reduce costs, increase profits, and improve procurement and supply chain performance.
