Total Service Provider

More efficient purchasing proceses


BIG_tsp_web-1_engThere are probably few people who know your business as well as you do. But when it comes to purchasing processes for materials and tools, we are convinced that we will be able to help you save money. The service Total Service Provider helps you reduce both hidden and visible costs. It is a Lean-based method for reviewing material handling at your company. Development and improvement become a manageable, continuous part of daily work that guarantees your quality.

▪   Is the quality of your products and materials at the correct level for the relevant purpose, that is, neither unnecessarily high nor too low?

▪   Have you got an optimised material flow? Empty gaps on warehouse shelves can be as expensive as items that just stay on the shelf. What could you gain from optimised material flow?

▪   What could you gain from reducing the number of suppliers, as well as the amount of purchasing administration, file maintenance and number of products in the system?

▪   What could you gain from always having staff with up-to-date knowledge about products and new regulations?

Total Service Provider is an alternative to outsourcing. Instead of outsourcing, we strengthen your existing purchasing organisation and make it more efficient. We find solutions that fit your particular business. Experts from BIG-gruppen continually share their knowledge and participate in, and safeguard, the reorganisation work. For instance, they can provide your project groups with competent advisers, training and follow-up.

The BIG Group and SAS have a Nordic collaboration agreement based on reducing SAS’ total costs by working closely together and in accordance with the concept of a Total Service Provider.

The agreement covers deliveries of tools, supplies, personal protection equipment and a number of items specific to SAS to the airports at Arlanda, Kastrup and Gardermoen. The partnership involves the optimisation of products and stock levels where classification of critical products is involved. Analyses and proposals for improving cost-generating administrative procedures are drawn up together with SAS.

Project groups are supplemented by staff from both SAS and the BIG Group in order to establish objectives, produce proposals for reducing costs and implement and monitor these. Follow-up meetings are held on a continual basis to ensure that the collaboration continues and develops. The project has resulted in a number of efficiency and other improvements that have led to reduced costs for SAS.
