Realizing Short-term Savings in Purchasing


The economic effects of the corona pandemic require the business units of many industrial companies to reduce costs and thus contribute to maintaining competitiveness. Hidden potential for cost optimization often lies in purchasing organizations with complex supply chains and a high number of purchased components.


umlaut and FACTON extend their partnership by a specific project for cost savings. The objective of the collaboration is to support industrial companies in realizing short-term price reductions of purchased parts.

Realize short-term savings potential


The global consulting firm umlaut and FACTON combine their expertise in a joint project for the short-term identification of savings potentials in purchasing. By using the EPC Should Costing solution and in cooperation with umlaut, manufacturing companies are able to generate price reductions in the purchase of goods within a very short time. umlaut supports customers in the cost breakdown for purchased parts and in the preparation of negotiation workshops with suppliers.
