Your procurement is the foundation of your profits. The risk of insolvency in the construction industry is significantly higher than in many other industries. With a return on sales of 1% to 4%, contractors in particular generate the lowest return on all occupational groups involved in the construction.

Whether classic retail, wholesale, mail order, e-commerce or technical trade – in tough price wars, purchasing is the value creator of the company. The guiding principle „the profit is in purchasing“ is as characteristic of hardly any industry as it is of trade. Studies prove our practical experience. Corresponding instruments to reduce purchasing costs and thus drastically increase profit margins are often not used consistently. According to the buyers, the time factor plays an important role in the daily business. The protagonists‘ responsibilities range from category management and the preparation of annual interviews and the optimization of the supply chain to the reduction of indirect spend. In addition, daily supplier negotiations and the tracking of delivery performance are on the agenda. It quickly becomes apparent that strategic purchasing is facing capacity constraints and needs support in efficiently processing information to perform its tasks.

An opportunity assessment serves as the basis for the decisive development of efficient strategies for the optimization of costs and processes. First, all purchasing data is recorded and the current situation is analyzed.

Therefore, it is particularly important to gain deep insights into the entire purchasing process quickly and without much effort.

For purchasing optimization projects, it is important to implement the project goals generated from the opportunity assessment. The sustainable reduction of direct material costs, working capital optimization, improvement of delivery performance and cost reduction are just a few key words that characterize the extensive consulting business. Here it is necessary to avoid high manual effort and to use the available resources efficiently and purposefully. For success-based projects, every additional project day reduces your result. On the other hand, daily rate projects demand good results from day one, as the customer usually pays in advance. In both cases, however, the achievement of your project goals is in the foreground and the expectations of the customer at the end of the project are enormous. We can help you achieve your project goals faster and more efficiently, and shorten the project duration, especially in the analysis phase. Track your actions to implement a successful project.

Looking at the investment market over the last few years, there has been a significant increase in available cash and liquid assets. At the same time, however, the number of investments has stagnated. A record amount of approximately $ 1.5 billion of uninvested capital also creates a huge investment pressure for private equity firms. The global battle for lucrative investment goals is increasingly triggering a chain reaction. Significantly increased acquisition multiples are the consequence and lead again to increased returns expectations of investors. To generate sustainable profits, private equity firms today need to penetrate much deeper into the organization and illuminate the entire business process. The identification of saving potentials for value and performance enhancement in purchasing has taken on a special significance. Here, our team has in-depth practical experience and purchasing expertise from industry and consulting in order to identify and leverage relevant potential. Our goal is to uncover cost reduction opportunities already in the early stages, which contribute to increasing the value of a company and favoring the expected return on investment. This also increases the scope for investors throughout the bidding process. But what are the strengths of SCALUE compared to software and consulting providers?

The SCALUE management team has more than 15 years of practical experience in purchasing and purchasing consulting, and knows the operational, strategic and process optimization options from different perspectives and functions.
