Application examples for digital transformation
DIGITALIZATION IN PURCHASING
With our expertise in purchasing management, we provide you with targeted support in the digitization of purchasing - operationally and strategically.
We are experienced in:
- Digitalization of the ordering process through eProcurement
- Process automation of operational purchasing through the use of RPA (Robotic Process Automation)
- Introduction of a contract management tool for the active control of purchasing contracts
- Digital support of supplier management through tools for the selection of suitable suppliers, for performance tracking and for the individual evaluation and development of existing suppliers as well as risk management of suppliers.
- Optimization of category management through tool-supported strategy derivation and accompanying action tracking
- Implementation of purchasing controlling tools so that spend analyses are available in real time and with one click
For us, a holistic view and thinking “end-to-end” is key. By thinking outside the box, we have also built-up expertise in the implementation of ERP solutions in companies. This allows us to guide you through all phases of the digital transformation - from the definition of objectives to the creation of specifications and tender support to the implementation of your new ERP system. And that doesn't always have to be SAP, Oracle or Microsoft. Especially as a medium-sized company, smaller or industry-specific ERP solutions may be a better fit for your company, your processes and your requirements.
It has never been more important to make business processes transparent, to monitor them continuously and to improve them constantly than nowadays. And you can easily do it with a process mining tool. With this solution, you can identify inefficiencies in your processes and optimize them within a short time.
STÖHR FAKTOR's team of consultants is experienced in the use of process mining software. From the connection to your ERP system, the creation of analyses and dashboards to the derivation and transfer into measures. We support your implementation of your chosen process mining software - but also a temporary support within a project is possible.

In data mining, patterns, trends and correlations of data are identified with the help of technology. We support you in the selection and implementation of suitable data mining solutions as well as in the interpretation of the data, the derivation of recommendations for action, and the implementation of concrete measures.
A frequent use case for purchasing is the application of a spend analytics solution for a comprehensive view on purchasing data. The spend analytics solution creates transparency about your organization's purchasing behaviour. This includes the analysis of your supplier and category structure. In addition, our solution uncovers your cost saving potentials, simplifies the spend management along KPIs and helps to track savings measures.
Independence from tool providers
As an autonomous consulting firm, we are independent and support you in identifying and selecting tool providers. Our partnership with solution providers such as Celonis or Scalue means that we know these solutions in detail - and also appreciate them. At the same time, we are familiar with other providers on the market that may be a better fit for your individual requirements. It is very important to us to find the best solution for you.
