Intero Consulting has been providing its clients with comprehensive consulting services and project support in the purchasing environment for more than 15 years. In particular, we have helped many of our customers in the financial services sector to set up and professionalize their purchasing organisations; we have also used our extensive product group expertise to support our customers in many purchasing projects and savings initiatives in the relevant product groups.
Our success in negotiations ultimately rests on our profound knowledge of the markets and key suppliers. Numerous price benchmarks, outstanding methodological knowledge and excellent negotiating skills make us the ideal partners for our customers, most of whom we have been working with for many years.
Thanks to their process experience and social skills, our consultants integrate seamlessly into the project groups and purchasing organizations of their clients and provide the support the customers need to achieve their objectives, precisely tailored to the situation in terms of both the type and scope of the support required. Our wealth of experience ranges from classic tendering procedures (RFP/RFQ) and monopolist negotiations (IBM mainframe) to purchasing in the agile project environment.
