Procurement Outsourcing

Effective Savings Through Procurement Outsourcing

Procurement outsourcing is a suitable solution to unlock hidden savings potential, especially in indirect procurement. This involves outsourcing the strategic and operational procurement activities of indirect purchasing, such as the procurement of marketing requirements, consumables, IT hardware or service vehicles, to a specialist outsourcing service provider.

If it is not cost-effective to set up your own procurement organisation for strategic sourcing in indirect procurement, procurement outsourcing is a cost-effective and attractive alternative. We take over your strategic and operational purchasing and create the optimum conditions to increase your procurement performance.

By outsourcing your indirect requirements, you have more time for your core activities – your Procurement department can concentrate on direct procurement and therefore add value to the company.

How do we do it?
Firstly, we assess your current situation, identify the scope of individual requirements and develop an appropriate grouping of goods. We then work with you to define core processes for strategic and operational procurement. We also develop a set of rules with a distribution of tasks and responsibilities for carrying out the procurement in the context of procurement outsourcing. The implementation phase is supported by a tried and tested e-procurement tool, which ensures maximum efficiency, transparency and data security throughout the entire procurement process.

What are the benefits of Procurement Outsourcing?

The key benefits of outsourcing indirect procurement in comparison to managing one’s own procurement organisation include:

  • It is much easier to achieve long-term results after an optimisation project
  • It is more cost-effective and scalable in the long term
  • It enables a higher level of compliance

The results:

  • Improved procurement performance and reduced costs
  • The benefits of specialist expertise
  • Access to new markets and suppliers

„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.“
