Bottom-line result improvement

You rightly focus on the company’s core business activities. The NPR categories, therefore, are often not paid the attention required in order to achieve the best solutions. This corresponds to a lack of time and expertise within the category and leads to a lack of spending insight, a failure to combine volumes and a less-than-effective purchasing policy. As a result, potential savings are not realised or not realised to their full extent.

And this is a mistake when you realise that NPR categories make up around 10 to 12 percent of turnover. By bringing these categories under control, you can achieve a significantly higher profit margin. Our customers, who benefit from this expertise via our services, are able to gain the very best advantages from the purchasing groups for a limited investment in a very short period of time. As a result, they save at least 10% in the categories that are brought under control. To this end, proQure uses purchasing specialists for each of the categories who purchase on a daily basis and who genuinely specialise in the relevant areas, often as a result of having obtained many years of experience within the specific sector. We are thus able to function as a valued partner for customers, department managers and suppliers throughout the entire purchasing chain and provide added value during negotiations.

Our buying managers are capable of proactively supporting customers and providing supervision in terms of creating and honing the desired purchasing specifications; they can also take co-responsibility for (partially) managing customer contacts and individual supplier relationships. In order to ensure the process runs most effectively, proQure guarantees customer-focussed support when creating and maintaining the very best teamwork with all parties (customer, supplier and proQure).

proQure also offers its purchasing expertise in the form of project management and consultancy for a range of customers who wish to further professionalise their purchasing activities. This could involve the execution of Quick Scans (purchasing-wide or category-specific), the short term realisation of significant savings and/or the accommodation of several purchasing categories within proQure.
