Our Mission & Vision

CaPS (CapMan Procurement Services) is a service driving down costs on non-strategic products and services for our member companies in the Nordics and the Baltics. We combine the procurement volumes of our members and review and address their indirect spend in order to achieve significant savings. Our long-term vision is to be recognised as the most professional procurement and supplier management organisation in Northern Europe. Together with a large vendor network, we help our customers to reach their goals by steering volumes, obtaining exceptional purchasing prices and offering best in class services and other benefits.

Core values
We are committed to our customers and their success. Our passion is to help our customers to succeed.
We continuously develop our services for our customers and vendors and explore more efficient solutions. When we fail, we try again and harder.
We are driven by the end result, not only of our own but also those of our customers and vendors, whether it relates to increased savings or enhanced sales potential.
