Lean management

Handtmann Service GmbH & Co.

The goal is to achieve lean, efficient administrative processes with the support of modern software. Lean management views itself as a facilitator for the colleagues involved in the various administrative processes and works together with them to create the ideal process. In this way, for example, requirement and procurement processes are brought up-to-date or a suitable logistics concept is drafted for the company and its internal customers.

The division coordinates the procurement of products and services required throughout the corporation. One focal point is purchasing for construction projects and existing buildings, for example the procurement of building materials and construction services or of services such as the servicing and maintenance of lifts and building equipment.
