Easy Order System®

The importance of TCO focus

Technical component procurement

  • < 10% of total purchasing budget
  • > 90% of total orders/ order lines
  • > 80% of total suppliers
  • Limited standardisation (products & brands)
  • Fragmented supplier base
  • Large stock
  • Local focus/ no attention to multi-site synergies
  • Time consuming

Does this sound familiar?

Composition of the Total Cost of Supply (TCO)

ERIKS is specialised in supplying a wide range of mechanical engineering components. These products represent, by a relative low purchasing value (C-items), only a small part of the entire purchasing budget of a company. 

The largest parts of the TCO exist of procurement costs (purchasing and storage costs) and technical usage costs (maintenance and manufacturing/assembly). By shifting the focus from just price to complete TCO, annual savings of minimum 10 to 15% of the total annual spend are possible!
