The advantage of service
Procurement costs and service
Cheap can become very expensive. In many companies, purchasing decisions are frequently based solely on the cost of parts and transportation. Procurement costs, risk reduction costs, alteration costs or costs to harmonize the production processes of numerous suppliers are frequently secondary in purchasing decisions. Suppliers who assume these risks and offer complete service from a single source offers special advantages.
Companies that optimize based on the total cost of ownership (TCO) save 10 - 15% of overall procurement costs depending on the branch. Companies with a successful purchasing management system consider both the manufacturing costs and lifecycle costs (LCC). 80% of operating costs after a product has been designed are fixed. Subsequent costs for dies and molds, servicing and energy must be optimized in the development phase in early, close cooperation between design, purchasing and the supplier (advanced purchasing). Services offered by manufacturers and suppliers can translate into distinct advantages. G.W.P. offers such comprehensive service and assumes all of the major procurement risks for its customers.
