Added value for purchasing by Deutsche Business Consulting GmbH

Thanks to DBC’s high degree of specialization in purchasing processes, we offer key figures that document your success in purchasing better than would be possible in the standard system. Here are two key figures as an example:

  • Mandated purchasing volume
    This key figure makes it clear for which part of the expenditure the purchasing department has a mandate.
    It is also obvious that only expenditure in this area can contribute to a maverick buying rate.
    Savings ratios also use the mandated purchasing volume as a basis Text editor
  • savings
    By documenting the savings, you make the success of purchasing transparent.
    For each source determination, the success of the negotiation is recorded in the corresponding document (contract, catalog item or order item) and can then be evaluated. Negotiation successes without a purchasing document (rent, postage, energy, etc.) can be recorded separately.
    Savings achieved through discounts or quantity/value conditions can also be evaluated.
