Procurement pooling

Achieve cost, time and resource savings throughpooling.

For more than 20 years we have been the specialists for successful procurement management in Switzerland. We establish strategic procurement partnerships and generate sustainable cost savings for our clients by pooling volumes in the indirect area.

With more than 100 framework agreements, we cover almost all commodity groups. By outsourcing contract negotiations for indirect products and services to INNOSourcing, our customers can focus on their individual core competencies and are thus considerably relieved.

How it works

INNOSourcing coordinates cross-company strategies with its clients. INNOSourcing becomes the central hub between clients and suppliers. Depending on the commodity group, the focus is set on single, dual or multiple procurement strategies.
As a mandate partner, INNOSourcing represents its clients in projects and contract management against the suppliers. Operational procurement (flow of information, goods and values) remains in the hands of the clients.
The prerequisites for this partnership-based collaboration are trust, solidarity and the willingness to change.
