that is the average reduction of the administrative cost of an optimised purchase process*

The purchase process goes beyond the single purchase department. It is carried out in 5 stages involving several departments according to the applicable procedures within an organisation:

The purchases optimisation is built on the setting up of automated processes combining best practices and a dedicated technological solution. Without automation, low value-added administrative tasks, re-entries, and mistakes accumulate and represent significant indirect costs. Investments are rapidly profitable in an optimised process compared to the costs generated by the placing, follow-up, receipt, invoicing, and payment of non-automated orders. According to La Lettre des Achats, (Procurement specialised publication), an indirect purchases order has a cost of €36 for an optimised process instead of €73 for a non-automated process, which represents a saving of over 50 %.

So, there are some sources of productivity at the heart of the purchase process beyond the methods of purchasing negotiations.
