Shareholders and Alliance members bundle their 20 billion euros of annual spend with BuyIn. The company works along three central business areas: Network Technology, Devices & Platforms and Information Technology. At BuyIn, our Target Costing @ Procurement team merges procurement and engineering expertise. For us, Target Costing is vital to identifying cost drivers. Working together with our customers’ technology teams and with our suppliers, we can rightsize product features and deliver sustainable savings.
In 2011, Deutsche Telekom and Orange founded BuyIn to remain relevant in a competitive market with strong smartphone and broadband growth, declining margins, high technical challenges and a very strong and consolidated supplier base. By delivering strategic procurement services to its members, BuyIn increases the competitiveness in their direct spend. This competitiveness leads to sustainable economies of scale and savings based on analytics and benchmarks across millions of price points from 40+ operators.
