success story

Knorr-Bremse Systeme Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH

“simple system impressed with simple approaches, which were tailored to our company. Our demands to optimize procurement processes while reducing process costs were met shortly after implementation. Purchasing is relieved by procuring C-items and has free resources available for the actual core business. ”

The challenge

Complex procurement structures prevent systematic consolidation of requirements to selected suppliers.

The solution

simple system makes indirect procurement completely transparent.

“We were looking for a market platform that we didn't have to worry about hosting. Since the 4 shareholders of simple system are also our suppliers, we also looked at this platform. In November 2015, we started with simple system.

With simple system, our operational purchasing department benefits.

15 suppliers from Germany and 3 from Hungary are currently being used. The “Reporting” function enables us to compare suppliers better. Orders can thus be bundled to fewer suppliers. Capacities such as budget and time can now be better utilized.

We particularly like Simple System:

  • The comprehensive search
  • The restriction of suppliers and product groups for individual users or user groups
  • The quick connection and updates of catalogues
With simple system, we can use our improved pricing conditions across Europe and advance consolidation in the MRO sector.

More than 600 users are currently using the platform from our internal systems, and in some cases individual access has already been introduced. Thanks to the comprehensive search and easy integration of catalogues, our operational purchasing department spends less time purchasing C-parts. Using the platform ensures significantly better organization in our purchasing department. Our employees are relieved of the burden of purchasing C-parts and can use their time more effectively. We are very satisfied with simple system and have already mentioned the platform positively in exchange with other companies. ”
