What we stand for

We are enthusiastic about indirect purchasing, infatuated with sustainable processes and
work with our customers and partners on an equal footing — for over 23 years.

Enthusiastic about indirect purchasing

It is hard to believe how many companies are neglecting the area of purchasing, even though this is precisely where so much money can be saved — or even wasted. Even though the value of screws, tools, hygiene articles or cleaning products is low, their procurement is all the more expensive if they are decentralized in the individual departments and individually from different vendors. This drives up process costs and results in low transparency with regard to prices, quality and incoming goods.

Intrigued by sustainable processes

simple system has set itself the task of simply depicting complex processes. Approval processes, implementation processes, rights, and role concepts… we love smart purchasing organizations in which as little time as possible has to be spent on recurring tasks. We do not have long introductory and training periods.

Only successful together

simple system stands for pioneering spirit. Every day, the team works with existing purchasers and vendors to be able to map the purchasing and sales processes in indirect purchasing even more easily.

Where we come from

simple system was founded over 23 years ago with the vision of digitizing purchasing processes in medium-sized German companies.
