Procurement Management

Tellmann Consulting looks at your business processes from a different perspective, so it sees optimisation potential that is easily overlooked by entrenched procedures. The subsequent savings, cost reductions, process optimisations and consolidations in our areas of expertise lead to a build-up of know-how in our clients and enable a competitive edge through reduced costs.

With well-thought-out concepts, innovative solutions and a host of experience in national and international markets, we keep a cool head even in difficult situations. Procurement management is therefore a generic term for a portfolio of powerful and proven measures, which are presented in the Tellmann Consulting Cloud.

Indirect Purchasing

Indirect Purchasing refers to all products and services that are not processed into end products and are not part of the merchandise. Indirect purchasing accounts for up to 20% of total costs in manufacturing companies, and significantly more in service companies.

(Indirect) Purchasing subdivides the products and services to be procured into commodity groups, which – in addition to IT, services and travel management – also include areas such as marketing, facility management, energy, maintenance, office supplies or insurance. Individually, indirect commodity groups do not account for a large share of the total purchasing volume, but total indirect purchasing does contain a high volume.

With our structured approach, we analyse your indirect commodity groups and identify the savings potential in the areas of requirements, processes, markets, organisation and contracts, which also leads to increased efficiency in the procurement process.

In purchasing, there are a variety of procurement processes, measures and ‘commodity groups’ to be optimised. We specialise in the following purchasing areas:

We combine the most important processes and skills in individual commodity group strategies. Influencing factors include information from suppliers, procurement markets, technologies, products, services, contracts or cost types and charts of accounts. Maverick buying is automatically reduced in this process. Market evaluations, such as Requests for Information (RFI), Requests for Proposal (RFP), Requests for Tender (RFT) or Requests for Quotation (RFQ) then guarantee a successful increase in value.
