Cut back on purchasing costs yourself

You can do a lot yourself to reduce purchasing costs. First, you need insight into current costs such as ICT, energy costs, facility costs, and so on. The first step is therefore to analyze and segment the creditor file to get a good picture of the purchase costs. Then you can determine per supplier which products you purchase and which quantities are involved.

Analyze appointments

Step two consists of analyzing the contract agreements, in which you look for possibilities to extend existing contracts at more favorable conditions. In this phase you can invite your current supplier, but also other suppliers to compare price and reliability. In the final phase, you make a plan of action to reduce procurement costs, where it is important to involve all stakeholders. A lower price may never lead to a lower quality.
