Financial challenges and tough competition

In a tough industry, it is important to run the business optimally, avoiding costly purchasing processes and unnecessary expenses. More and more players see the value of implementing smarter storage solutions, consolidating suppliers and tailoring logistics.

A survey conducted by Dansk Industri in 2018 revealed that costs are considered one of the biggest barriers to growth. A result that we believe applies to most businesses.

The purchasing department is an important contributor to the company's overall competitiveness, with opportunities to improve the bottom line and strengthen the profitability of the business.

Materials, rent and salaries are large costs that can be complex and challenging to take action on. As a result, it is desirable to find other and simpler but equally useful measures. We must find other measures that can strengthen the bottom line. This is where a Total Cost of Ownership approach can contribute to significant savings.

What is TCO?

A TCO approach will ensure that you take all costs in connection with purchasing and consumption into consideration when taking steps to bring down total costs. This may involve e.g. streamlining of administrative processes, changes to the logistics setup and consolidation of suppliers with a view to ensuring sharp purchase prices on the most important products.
