of buyers have cost reduction as primary objective*

Purchases account for 15 % to 50 % of turnover of your organisation; they are a genuine source or savings that remains too often untapped, especially as indirect procurement is concerned.

75 % to 80 % of the potential savings on purchases are to be made at the customer’s and not at the supplier’s. This figure may seem surprising but, generally speaking, employees are only very rarely made aware and most of the organisations still don’t know very well their expenditure breakdown which can cover a broad spectrum of areas. See following examples:

  • IT & telecommunication : telecommunication budget accounts, on average, for €800 to €1,000 per year and per employee.
  • Business trips & travels : in France, business trips related expenditures account for almost €30 billion.
  • Supplies : each employee consumes up to 85 kg paper per year!
  • But also, Human Resources, Facility management, Utilities, Marketing & Communication, Transport & Logistics, Intellectual Services, etc.

Savings can be made mainly by purchase rationalisation on an internal level, by supplier sourcing, and action prioritisation on purchase categories with a significant impact on turnover. Identified potential savings are many and, mostly, prompt a genuine leverage effect on the margin.
