One of the company’s principles is to reduce the total cost of ownership (TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP TCO) for its customers. This concept analyzes all costs linked to the life cycle of a product and not only the cost of acquisition. On further analysis, we can conclude that the majority of the costs of a product are not represented only by its cost of acquisition.
The visible cost generally represents only 15% of the total cost of ownership.
The invisible cost generally represents 85% of the total cost of ownership, and includes the following aspects:
In our view, we believe that the total acquisition cost can be reduced considerably with outsourcing. The experience of years in the market leads us to understand that there is a virtuous cycle in the practice of specializing the activities of a company. In this sense, Santis specializes in stamping solutions for electrical contacts with welded material, being able to considerably reduce the TCO of our customers with professional management, investment in technology, constant improvement and technical capacity.
Serving several clients with stamping solutions, we dilute the cost of investing in technology, investments that often would not make sense in an internalized operation of a company.
Through research and development and technical training of employees, we were able to accumulate and manage the knowledge necessary for the development and improvement of best practices.
With financial controls, professional strategic management, performance management and professional planning, the company manages to become more competitive, extracting the maximum potential from its assets, which results in gains in scale and efficiency.
With a long-standing relationship with the main suppliers of raw materials, Santis has the capacity to make purchases and manage inventory more assertively, with negotiations that result in lower costs for clients.
