We are business controllers, specialised in supplier conditions and sets of conditions. We apply our financial know-how to structurally improve your purchasing processes and results, rendering them manageable.
During my period as Purchasing Manager and as Unit Manager at C1000, I came to know Jaap, Gerrit, Klaas and Robert as dedicated 'accountants', who took an enthusiastic and serious attitude in their search for issues which would help us strongly improve results already achieved and future results, within the C1000 commercial team. Working together with these colleagues, which is what they felt like, was always full of enthusiasm and a great degree of results orientation. Controllers are not often the favourite colleagues for commercial staff, but these men went around their business in such a way that it was a pleasure to work with them.

Thorough analysis: maximum preparation
Purchasing departments in many different branches
Recentes helps establish the data management system and process, so that buyers enjoy maximum preparation (preferably better than the supplier does) for the negotiation meeting.
Many purchasing departments have inadequate availability and analysis of finances in order to be able to prepare well for annual meetings with suppliers. The better your preparation, the greater the chance of successful negotiations.

What are the commodity prices? How much pricing pressure is there? What is the percentage of lost revenue? What burden does this supplier put on the Supply Chain? What is the historical development of the products in question? How innovative is the supplier? What is the throughput and the [...]
Over the past few years, the Recentes men have played an extremely important role for C1000, for instance in terms of supplier conditions and working capital control. I have grown to appreciate each and everyone of them as extremely dedicated, results-oriented and expert men. In other words, you can depend on Recentes!
