A leading industrial manufacturer with presence in key sectors as automotive, financial services, trade and logistics, information technology, and infrastructure development wished to understand whether it was purchasing components from various suppliers at the right price or overpaying.

Objective was to benchmark the OEM price of its own sample components against select competitor models.  The findings were validated through primary research with distributors, dealers, and analysts.

  • Is the client purchasing components at the right price or over paying?
  • Are price agreements competitively arranged  to leverage the maximum value of resources?
  • Should some of the components currently being manufactured in-house be sourced from suppliers, or vice-versa?
