So – Why Procurement?

It’s your secret weapon in the battle for profits …

  • When you’ve run out of options – can’t take on – or get rid of any more staff …
  • When your ad spend has gone …
  • When sales are stagnant and falling …
  • When morale is rock bottom …

 

I can find the chinks in your armour – and plug them

Why Supply Chain Management – SCM?

It dynamites your expenses …

Dynamite is one of the most explosive substances known to man. Discovered by Alfred Nobel – he of Nobel Prize fame.

In its constituent form – it’s just three innocuous substances Why SCM?

  • Fossilized algae and/or sawdust
  • Nitroglycerin
  • Ammonium Nitrate

But – when these are mixed – and then triggered by a detonator – the explosive force is overwhelming and powerful.

Supply Chain Management is the same – it mixes:

  • Inventory management
  • Raw material sourcing
  • Business processes
  • Logistics
  • Suppliers
  • Costs

Each of these areas alone allows procurement cost reduction  – but – combine them – and you create a chain reaction in the cost of procurement.

Unfortunately, most businesses I come across ignore purchasing and supply management.

If you are one of those businesses, you are missing an average of 25-40% in savings across all your operational sectors – especially innovative cost-saving ideas, logistics management, and purchase order best practices,

  • Jorg should establish a purchasing function, and in the five years the cooperation lasted, he did an excellent job. He was good to find reliable suppliers and achieved good prices.

    Socially, Jorg has good sense of humour, and he had the good of the company. At the executive level, the cooperation was good.

    It is my belief that Jorg will work well with logistics tasks. 90% of the work for us was deliveries to the Far East, Thailand, the Baltics and Greenland. Jorg took care of shipments internationally.

    Our ERP system was Navision, which does not satisfy Jorgs needs, why Jorg built himself a suitable database for handling the large supplier database.


    Poul Moller, Puritek

  • Jorg was hired to solve a very complex problem in the field logistics / Baan, which Crisplant in connection with a project in Munich had trouble with. It was a project which frustrated most, but Jorg handled the task in a very proper and nice way. I remember Jorgs form of communication as good, and he was eagerly listening to the customer's needs and wants. The cooperation was limited to this task.

    Jorg is having a humble approach to the duties, is independent and is taking responsibility for the solution.

    Subsequently, I experienced Jorg as a speaker in engineering association, and he left a positive impression. A good man that I want to recommend.


    Henrik Tarp - Crisplant

  • Jorg has been considered for a job I did for a customer. His all-round skills in IT and knowledge about business, organization, communication, employees, management and projects has made a big impression on me. I can hardly imagine that there would be challenges and problems in companies that Jorg will not be able to cope.


    Muharrem Aydas Headhunter at RightMatch Search & Selection

  • Jorg recently put me in touch with several suppliers for front doors. He was prompt in helping me make links with suppliers after I put a request out for suppliers of front doors at a business networking meeting. I look forward to working with him in the future.


    Inge Berrie, Berrie Garden Design

  • I tasked Jorg to source a specific product for one of our clients, working to a very tight budget. 

    I was delighted at how fast he presented me with options, ultimately leading to savings of up to 25 %. 

    Additionally, his knowledge and expertise of import/export regulations was invaluable. 

    I would have no hesitation of recommending XN’K Consulting to any company in the future.
