Evaluating the procurement organization
The enormous speed of technological change means that every leading company can only maintain its position by making adequate use of the procurement markets. At the same time, it is possible that traditional structures in the procurement department will prove to be a hindrance to necessary changes and lead to disadvantages in competition. In particular in such situations it is often difficult for people involved, including management staff, to find better options as currently used and to initiate appropriate measures. Emarticon can help you with an external perspective to examine the structure and processes of your organization and, if necessary, to propose measures for improvement.

Yet, AI and technical innovation also include the risk of competitive disadvantages if the opportunities remain unused.

Emarticon project example
As part of a company restructuring, one of the tasks for Clemens Rinnebach and his network of experts was to set up central procurement including cost management. The goals of the new organization were a) the reduction of overall costs in terms of the total cost of ownership and b) the establishment of target cost management processes.
Based on workshops, Emarticon was able to find measures for changes and to achieve agreement with the company's stakeholders. Significant value for the customer resulted from our previous project work in different industries. The basis for the procedure was the approach of the Emarticon® Functional Strategy concept.
As part of the project, a global cloud-based e-procurement system and a portal were introduced and extensive business process outsourcing was carried out.
