Siemens Case Study

CLIENT: Siemens


Challenge

With a wide range of brands and a highly diverse premiums collection Siemens required strong leadership and solutions, for effective development of their markets.


 Solution

We have successfully run global and regional programs for Siemens for many years and we continue to implement a globally coordinated program with one global agreement but locally managed to accommodate specific needs for individual countries. We ensure both maximum efficiencies but also ensure the legalities as part of this contract are carefully safeguarded.


Results

We continue to run a worldwide program for Siemens with local support in over 40 countries with key distribution centres in China, Germany, Dubai, Russia, Brazil and Argentina.

Approximately half of the spend is on collection items meaning we have been able to ensure savings are met year on year. To ensure markets are treated very much individually according to need, around half of all orders are treated as ‘specials’ and are ordered directly with our local offices with local account management and local invoicing in local currencies.
