The CaPS way

CaPS (CapMan Purchasing Scheme) is a service driving down costs on non-strategic products and services for our member companies. The concept is unique among private equity investors in the Nordic countries.

The strength of networks in purchasing activities

For close to 10 years we have supported our member companies in Finland and Sweden to review and address their spend. We have delivered savings of €40 million. We are also a powerful network for sharing best practices. Each year more than 100 member companies use our sourcing services.

Significant savings for our members

CaPS is above all a member-driven concept. The member companies of our closed network have a combined turnover of approx. €10 billion and more than 50 000 employees. Our member companies play a central role in the selection of sourcing categories and partners.All partners are selected in a competitive procurement process, which includes all members interested in a specific category.Our approach is to aggregate wherever possible from laptops to vehicles. So far, CaPS has tendered around 60 categories in Finland and 40 in Sweden.
