Adding Value

Whether you have an internal procurement role or work in a dedicated procurement business on behalf of your clients, we know your role is vital in supporting the organisation’s strategic objectives of profitability, innovation and market expansion. Choosing the right partners plays a decisive role in your ability to do this.

Like you, we understand that value can be measured in a number of ways; often long-term quality endurance or securing the rapid delivery of a much-needed part has far greater business value than shaving off an extra percentage point in a price negotiation.

However, there’s no escaping it: pricing and cost management are key performance measures. We believe that procurement needs to identify those suppliers who will:

  • explore improved pricing if you have time on your side and longer delivery lead times are an option;
  • offer volume discounts for larger order quantities or forward-orders;
  • recommend viable, cost-effective alternative solutions;
  • ensure that cost savings aren’t achieved at the expense of quality, or a prolonged or unmet delivery date;
  • ensure operational efficiencies and reducing the total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the asset/equipment, not just the initial product cost.

Hydraulics Online is that supplier. Your success is in our direct interest and we always work in the best interest of our procurement partners. This is our promise.
