What is TCO and how can it help you?

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a holistic way of looking at your business, where you focus on the total cost of your purchases. Instead of just focusing on the prices for material purchases, we help you review your entire chain. We help you create an optimal material flow with fewer suppliers, less inventory and increased profitability.

Three easy steps to get started

Getting started with TCO is not difficult. Any business can do that, and our team of experts will help you through the entire process.

The work begins with Solar's TCO team analyzing your business and your purchases to see which initiatives are most important.

Among other things, we come up with suggestions on how we can reduce the number of suppliers and optimize and streamline your stock.


Once we have found the way to proceed, your company should see concrete results of the work within a quarter.

You appoint a person in charge and we set common goals to work towards. Together with Solar, you have then quarterly adaption where we follow developments and ensure that you continue to go in the right direction.

“Many companies do not have the necessary overview of how they shop and how much costs the purchases entail in total. We can contribute that knowledge, which makes the company more efficient and profitable - while minimizing the environmental impact. ”

Lars Lange, TCO expert and sales director, MRO Solar


Tail Spend, small purchases with a big impact

C-items often account for a fifth of the company's purchasing costs - but for * 80% of the purchasing administration. We help you minimize the number of suppliers and deliveries of C-items, which often makes a drastic difference on the bottom line.

Test and you'll see.
