Operational procurement

We manage operational procurement. For example, your procurement department performed a tender-contractual work for a certain category and signed a contract with a supplier on more favorable terms. At first glance, everything is fine: now the company will start saving mlns. But after a while, it turns out that the actual savings are less than the estimated ones. The reason is that the category is managed by department managers, administrators, secretaries. They have no time to go into details of the contracts and follow the execution. We take operational procurement for outsourcing, and not only achieve the planned savings, but also increase them.

We will ensure that your company does not waste away the savings achieved through optimization. We will assist in document management.

To Heads of Business Units

We decrease the workload on the employees

Procurement and document management are non-core operations for the initiators. They are not additionally paid for it. There is no reward in case of savings. It is beneficial for them when there are people to hand over the operational purchasing to, and to get focused on the core tasks.

We save budgets

We know how to save – we have experience in reducing the cost of operational purchasing in different categories. Owing to the savings, the manager can perform additional tasks for which there was not enough budget before.

We solve disputable situations

If contract execution fails, we solve the problems. The employees are not distracted from their work. As a result, the entire department works better and performs its tasks faster.

We perform document management

We take the burden of collecting closing documents from contractors, handling requests and orders in SAP/1C systems from your employees’ shoulders. We submit closing documents in time allowing for income tax reduction and VAT refund.

To Procurement Directors

We take on current tasks

We take the routine tasks off the procurement department. They do not need to get distracted by operational purchasing and settlement of claims. They work with strategic tasks. As a result, the department efficiency improves.

We implement planned savings

We ensure that the planned costs get in line with the actual ones. With us, the company will not lose its savings obtained during sourcing.

We deal with suppliers

Operational buyer prevents irregularities on the side of suppliers and initiators, solves problems. Suppliers do not inflate prices, become loyal and ready to special conditions for the recurrent sourcing projects.

We collect statistical data

Every month, we provide reports and statistics. When implementing new sourcing projects, the managers have data necessary for tender-contractual work. There is a basis for calculating savings and efficiency of procurement department.

To CFOs and Chief Accountants

We decrease costs

We reduce costs for a selected category. We achieve the characteristics stated in sourcing and bring additional savings of 5-7%. We reduce the taxes through collecting documents.

We bring discipline

We bring discipline at all process stages in operational procurement: procure-to-pay. Orders and requests are created on time in SAP/1C system and are submitted for payment.

We facilitate work of accountants and financial controllers

We provide closing documents. Prices, amounts in invoices and contracts are in line. No additional verification by financial controllers is needed. No need to be afraid of inspections, it is easy to conduct an audit – all the documents are available.

Prevent fraud and errors

Contracts are executed consistently. Costs do not grow. Initiators buy what is foreseen by the contract. Vendors supply right products and according to the terms and conditions specified in the contract.
