Our client, a leading company in the Retail industry associated with cosmetics, wants to assess the opportunities linked to global synergies of its indirect procurements. KEPLER supports it in a complete analysis of its “Indirect Procurement” organization to take advantage of international synergies.


  • Procurement divided between 3 regions (Europe, North America, Asia)

  • Total expenditure of $1.3 billion

  • 2500+ stores worldwide

  • Indirect procurement managed at the national / regional levels, often directly by the various departments of the company (Marketing, IT, Supply Chain, etc.)

  • Poor or lack of coordination and communication between regions


Category: Co-operating the Company’s Strategy 

  • Assessing the “Indirect procurement” opportunity and organization required to make better use of global synergies

  • Maximizing and expanding sourcing

The success of a Procurement diagnosis and its deployment are mainly based on a detailed and pragmatic mapping of expenditure and the involvement of internal customers from the start of this diagnosis. This is all the more true in the case of indirect expenditure (IT, Transport, Marketing, Overheads, etc.) which are by nature linked to different Services of the Company.
