Contract conditions, terms, legal requirements, surcharges, reimbursements, etc. determine the framework within which services such as insurance, temporary employment or, for example, vehicle fleets are to be considered. Each commodity has its own rules and market conditions. But they have one thing in common: only with expert knowledge calculations can be transparent and negotiated appropriately
Services include many commodities that are not classic purchasing topics. Often, these services are procured by other corporate divisions. From temporary employment through HR or insurance through finance. Therefore, often not all purchasing resources and competences are used. As part of an optimisation project, technical and purchasing competences can be brought together and high potentials can be realised.
