Procurement Controlling with the right key data

Complex procurement volumes, development and integration of strategic partners as well as increasing specialization and growing internationality lead to a continuously expanding role for procurement in the value added chain. In Controlling, traditional but less meaningful key data are often used. Forward looking procurement controlling must reflect, however, on the one hand the internal contribution of the procurement organization to results and its productivity. On the other hand it is also the task of the procurement department to evaluate its suppliers based on applicable key data. Based on our many projects in the purchasing area and also in other operating areas we support you in establishing a meaningful procurement controlling system.

Comprehensive Procurement Controlling in two steps

Beginning in structured workshops jointly with procurement and controlling, key data that are essential for supervising suppliers is gathered. The necessary data is derived from the ERP System and prepared in a relational data bank so that procurement is quickly and comprehensively informed on all key data.

The development of a Balanced Scorecard is the next step in procurement controlling. In order to increase future sustainability, the organization goals are broken down into measurable variables. By means of the resulting cause-effect chain the key numbers are defined and optimization measures are prepared which increase the long-term contribution of procurement to success.
