Organization

Procurement

Purchased services or products are often among the biggest cost items for any company. We put our clients in the best negotiating position and reduce spending along the entire supply chain.

Many companies have an extremely high share of purchased services. We at RITTERWALD improve structures and processes, organizations and guidelines, thereby achieving savings and efficiency gains for our clients. We’ll work to achieve the best possible ratio of quality to price for you, developing outsourcing strategies and structuring the RFP process so that procurement is optimized throughout every link in the value chain.

Fragmented supply structures imply considerable in-house costs for our clients. We can bundle various procurement activities in different outsourcing models and sell them with long-term contracts in the context of M&A projects. On the client side we’ll establish the necessary operational structures and ensure that everything goes smoothly after the successful transaction.

Reorganization in procurement: Housing companies can save money by bundling minor maintenance services in all-inclusive models

By standardizing the service provider structure, purchasing costs and process costs can be significantly reduced.

Standardized housing refurbishment catalogues make it possible to bundle services and compare them more easily: process and purchasing costs are reduced.

Price benchmarking

Our experience and industry insight give us precise knowledge of the latest prices for purchased services. We optimally exploit the market potential for our clients’ benefit and negotiate favorable terms with lasting effect.

Strong network

We maintain personal contact with industry players and are familiar with their business models. Suppliers and service providers rate us highly as fair and knowledgeable negotiators and are happy to work with us long term.

Effective structures

There are many examples of how optimized procurement processes have eased the administrative burden on our clients. For instance, utility billing becomes easier for the company to do and for tenants to understand. Better structures in planned maintenance management reduce the amount of organizational input required internally and make it easier to communicate the works to tenants.

Successful transactions

Delivery is our strong point. Once the strategic planning of outsourcing models within procurement is complete, our experienced M&A specialists take over: from approaching buyers to successfully closing the deal, they support our clients with sell-side advisory throughout all phases of the process.

Significant savings can be achieved by modularizing maintenance services.
