Optimised & digitalised supply chain processes

Purchasing potential analysis

The challenge

Many companies do not make sufficient use of the possibilities to save costs through process optimisation. Only a few companies have a process manager or the knowledge about current possibilities of digitalisation. Nowadays the challenge is industry 4.0 as an existential management task.

We optimise and digitalise your supply chain to pave the way to purchasing 4.0. We support you analysing your potentials and prepare you for the challenges of the future.

Benefit from the possibilities of costs reductions through process optimisations. Together with you and your employees, we create your individual roadmap and digitalisation strategy.

Metroplan-Approach and methodology

With the potential analysis carried out by Metroplan’s process and digitalisation specialists, we provide you with a current overview of your supply chain with a benchmark to other companies. We analyse the current state of your procedures and processes, identify your potential and jointly develop a concept to achieve the desired state with you and your employees. This leads to individual recommendations for your digitalisation strategy.

Process-optimised and digitalised purchasing cannot be bought “off-the-shelf”, but there are established standards which we use individually.

The scope and range of digitalisation and further possibilities to optimise processes has to be precisely developed, jointly determined and competently implemented. Moreover, an increased focus will be put on the organisation and the qualification of your employees.
