TechData GmbH & Co. KG, Munich (Germany)
TechData is one of the largest distributors of IT products, logistics management, and other value-added services. The German subsidiary runs SAP as a central ERP system for the European market. VMS was commissioned to check the price of the outsourcing partner with respect to best practices, and to highlight potential for performance improvements.
VMS found optimization potential in both areas and wrote concrete proposals for action in its final report. TechData used those immediately, and was able to achieve significant six-figure savings yearly by adjusting its relevant contract.
“VMS provided us with quick and usable information, so that we could take our systems, which were already pretty well distributed, and make them even more optimal. We really expected to get a few good pieces of information from VMS, but we did not expect this level of very helpful recommendations. VMS worked in a highly professional manner, showed great understanding for our desires and expectations, and adapted its work quickly to them.”
