With rigorous analysis, we deliver rapid cost reduction, improved service levels and improved quality of supplies, while mitigating risk – whether across just one spend category or many.
We implement, manage and monitor your supply contracts and procurement relationships. Following our initial cost reductions and quality improvement work, we track and improve benefits assiduously to ensure all savings and other benefits are delivered – this way, you know you’re getting what we’ve promised you, usually more.
To embed continuous, long-term benefit in your business, we will establish, or improve your procurement fundamentals, including:
Policy and strategy;
People and structure;
Processes and systems;
Managing and measuring supplies; and
For people in sales and marketing, dealing with procurement functions can be a difficult part of the sales process. We work with your sales and marketing teams, showing them how to navigate through procurement functions and their procedures, turning procurement from an obstacle into an ally.
Our consultants are specialists in specific spend categories and fundamentals
We analyse using category-specific software and provide the right support tailored to your needs
We offer access to deals which would not otherwise be available to you
We apply our procurement expertise and experience to more specialist categories which your business may require – in the past these have included car park equipment, psychiatric furniture and deep-sea engineering apparatus, among others.
