Digitalisierung im Procurement

    The only way to make digitisation really effective is by designing and implementing it in the right way. In this context, the purchasing department is more a control centre than a single unit. Transformation processes must be set up accordingly.

Why is it important to take on the digital transformation now?

The benefits of digitalised purchasing are far-reaching - increased efficiency, cost reduction, transparency, real-time insights. The question is not if, but when and how!

Highly integrated, digitalised procurement processes offer great potential for optimisation. In particular, repeatable, operational tasks can be almost completely automated. The resulting data transparency, data consistency and adequate tools enable more informed analyses. The completeness of the data in real time and AI expand the strategic decision-making horizon.

In direct procurement, these advantages are soon obvious. Indirect procurement areas are less transparent and much more difficult to digitise.

Digitisation - but the right way!

Which factors significantly determine the effectiveness of digitalised purchasing?

Data is the basis for informed decision-making. The quality of the data collected from different systems is crucial for the success of digitisation.
Only through tools data can be used for useful actions.
The technological possibilities of various tools are very different. The appropriate tool has a positive influence on a successful professional working method.
Inconvenient operation or duplicate maintenance of data leads to tools not being used. System breaks lead to inefficient working methods and a high error rate.
Skills der User
Only trained users can make full use of the tools' possibilities. Successful change management significantly supports the digitisation process.
Digitalisation in purchasing enables and promotes interdisciplinary work in the company. This increases the efficiency of the entire organisation.
Digitalisation changes process flows. Professional implementation increases the acceptance and motivation of all stakeholders.

This is how we can support you

Step-by-step development of a digitisation strategy

Every company has individual digitalisation requirements. That's why we first work with you in a multi-part workshop to determine your goals, the maturity level of your purchasing department and the appropriate digitalisation strategy.

As digitisation cannot be regarded from only one perspective, our team includes experts from Munich University of Applied Sciences, process specialists, data analysts, professionals in procurement tools and interfaces as well as experienced purchasers. This interdisciplinary work enables the development of a successful digitalisation strategy.
We are specialists for indirect commodities. Our experts know which factors, data, specifications and performance descriptions are crucial for the individual commodity groups and are familiar with the systems used individually.

Effective digitalisation brings this data together with purchasing KPIs in a meaningful way.
Which measure achieves the greatest effect? Are there modular solutions? Which tools are suitable? What synergies can be achieved? Data research, SRM, spend analysis contract management, RFI/ RFQ, auctions, procurement tools, process analysis, KPIs,... All this is used sensibly for your requirements.
HANSBECKER provides vendor-independent advice. The selection of a suitable solution is based exclusively on your situation and your requirements.
We support the entire procurement process for a suitable solution. From the definition of a requirement specification to the tendering, selection and awarding.
HANSBECKER takes over the project management during the realisation of the solution. We coordinate deadlines and requirements between your stakeholders and the service provider.

As experts for indirect product groups, we know exactly which analyses are the most promising for which product groups. In the majority of systems, the corresponding reports can be preconfigured.
In order to be able to use the tools in the best possible way and to make full use of them, the employees need to be trained. We are ready to support and accompany them in this.
The use of a new system usually also leads to changes in the processes that take place between purchasing and the specialist departments. In order to launch a successful digitisation project, the new workflow has to be adopted.
