Professionalization and performance improvement in indirect purchasing
Indirect purchasing in manufacturing companies generally makes up a share of more than 20 per cent of total costs, and this is even higher in the services sector and public sector. A ten per cent cost reduction in indirect purchasing provides an average increase in profit of around 1.3 per cent. To increase profit by this amount, sales would have to increase by ten per cent.
