Corporate consultancy for purchasing, accounting and cost management

Scroll down

For the manufacturing and retail sectors, the purchasing of goods and services has long been a strategic issue involving senior management and complex organisational structures. But in the services sector, purchasing is often accorded less significance.

Purchasing is about much more than the acquisition of goods and services.

Purchasing can make a sustainable contribution to a company's value creation process – including companies in the service sector.
It is this core belief that underpins what we do.

We focus on more than just simple purchasing. We link it to functions such as accounting and cost management. This cross-departmental networking leads to optimum organisational performance and creates a sustainable contribution to business success.

„The development of strategic purchasing structures, cost management for long-term benefits of the organisation and the optimisation of accounts payable processes are just some of the aims our clients are looking forward to achieving with our consultancy services.“
