Challanges & initial situation

We, as Burda Procurement GmbH, have no expert knowledge in the packaging material product group. In recent years, we have carried out regular tenders, but these were not standardized and without a complete overview of the supplier market.

Project information

  • Customer Burda Procurement GmbH
  • Date Q1/2023
  • Address Burda Procurement GmbHArabellastrasse 2381925 Munich

Aim of the collaboration

By working with PAXLY, we hoped to significantly reduce our own costs, standardize our purchasing contracts and optimize our purchasing conditions.

THE RESULTS - What did it achieve?

We were able to achieve our goals. A real "aha" moment for us: despite regular tenders, we were able to reduce prices by 20-30% together with PAXLY. This would only have been possible, if at all, with a considerable investment in supplier market research and optimized requirement specifications. However, due to our spend in this product group, this would not have been worthwhile.
