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.
GRIP is a fantastic, task-oriented software package for recording our purchasing contracts and purchasing conditions. I'm guided step-by-step through the screens required to create a new contract or condition. This makes it possible to record virtually all different types of conditions in GRIP. Even when a condition is agreed for a limited range, such a condition can most certainly be recorded. I can easily monitor the progress of recorded purchasing contracts and conditions. In all GRIP modules, it's obvious that a great deal of attention has been paid to achieving maximum user-friendliness. That's why I find GRIP to be an extremely enjoyable software package to work with.

The system had functioned satisfactorily until the takeover of C1000 by Jumbo.
For many years, a project was under way at a client organisation to build (their own!) system with which supplier conditions could be registered and calculated. Investments were already running into millions, but without completion.
Two events launched this project into a crisis: the project manager left the organisation and the controlling auditor required the system to be operational, tested and commissioned within 5 months.
