procurement overall spend
and supply base
Today’s modern business environment has seen increased competition and there are many challenges brought by the procurement process. Developing saving opportunities is the cornerstone of all our efforts, but other areas such as increasing gross revenue, market intelligence, localizing material purchases, building strategic partnerships, minimizing risk, etc. are also key factors on which Kepler brings personalized expertise, enhanced by advanced practices, to each one of these elements.
As a global procurement consulting firm,KEPLER works with Fortune 500 companies to build and manage high performance procurement processes which increases organizational efficiency and cost savings.
KEPLER offers End-to-End procurement consulting with cutting-edge technology to help clients achieve their goals.
Our Procurement consulting services includes:
Alignment with the company’s strategic goals and with the various operational roadmaps (engineering, finance, sales, marketing, etc.) can bring new and greater efficiency to Procurement. Kepler has a unique model geared towards building sourcing strategies that incorporates the need for agility as well as long-term goals.
The strategic understanding of a particular region and the operational flexibility that comes with international development requires that Procurement develop a deep knowledge of its supply base and the local procurement practices. Relying on its network of worldwide offices, Kepler supports Procurement in its international planning / development goals.
Among the most underused levers in Procurement, SRM and its corollary – supplier development. This lever is crucial component necessary to drive improved supplier performance and to strengthening strategic axes such as innovation and international development. Kepler specializes in deploying programs across both areas, from strategic assessments to localized implementation. Deployment is supported by targeted training/coaching programs for relevant functions.
Negotiations with suppliers too often fail because of the following; weak arguments, unreliable or unavailable data, improper financial modeling and poor savings estimates, etc. As a result, Kepler has developed customized negotiations toolkits across multiple industry sectors. These toolkits are used as a learning mechanism that enhances the skills of procurement teams that can be reused during future negotiations.
Modeling procurement costs is more crucial than ever, not only in relation to suppliers but also internally as a means of making more sound / sustainable technical choices (e.g. Costed BOM’s). Kepler relies on its own should cost methodology and the software (‘EasyKost’) to solve these challenges.
