Award Best of Consulting 2015

HÖVELER HOLZMANN CONSULTING’s two-year project spanned the sustainable enhancement and further development of procurement and supply chain processes for the nine own production facilities of the Swiss retailer and wholesaler. Leo Ebneter, Member of the Executive Board, comments on this: “The Smart Spenders project with HHC in the procurement and supply chain sector was a tremendously successful one for Coop.” Besides optimizing more than 40 categories of goods and a jointly designed central warehouse concept, HÖVELER HOLZMANN CONSULTING also made sure that savings achieved are secured long-term thanks to the centralized procurement organization. For Managing Director Dr. Bernhard Höveler, the award once again confirms the success of individually customized, close-to-the-client project work: as consultants, we can only be truly successful when we work together with our clients intensively and openly. This is the only way we can fully bring in our expertise in an optimal way, and achieve sustainable, optimum results in collaboration with our clients.”
