Procurement

Increase sustainable competitiveness through optimized cross-functional procurement work

We offer you strategic advice and operational implementation on all topics relating to the optimization of your purchasing – in a targeted, results-oriented and successful manner. This includes the development of a holistic, cross-location procurement strategy, the efficient realignment of the procurement organization and the digitization strategy. We are the experienced and reliable partner at your side from identification (identification of what? Cost-saving potentials?) to the implementation of concrete cost savings. This is achieved in particular through our cross-functional teamwork, because procurement can only develop its full potential in cooperation with all departments. Their specific goals and success factors are the key to achieving the best possible results.

TARGUS Success Factor

Cooperation with the Federal Association of Materials Management, Purchasing and Logistics e.V.

The Federal Association of Materials Management, Purchasing and Logistics (BME) collects annual key figures on quality, structure, processes, and costs in purchasing through a member survey. The results serve as a basis for the evaluation and benchmarking of purchasing organizations. The averages of the participants and the “Best-in-Class” results will be published.

The key figures help to identify potential improvements in procurement, to develop visions, strategies, and goals, and to evaluate the quality of one’s own organization compared to others. The results of the study as well as the ranking of the own organization are also an argumentation aid for purchasing to demand improvements.
