Procurement has a huge potential to reduce costs within organisations and plays a central role in value creation through activities such as technology scouting and category expertise.
Both strategic and operational procurement is changing dramatically as technology enables new capabilities. Being able to see and analyse spend such as the amount of maverick spend, who you spent most with last year and who your strategic suppliers used to take weeks can now be carried out in days.
Procurement is moving to a position of tactical importance within organisations as a function which looks both externally and internally.
Externally with regard to data on the supply landscape whether its for new product innovation or a specific category.
Internally procurement is able to provide valuable spend information for an organisation to maximise opportunities in both the sourcing of goods and services as well as managing suppliers in an optimal way to gain best value for money.
We identify and unlock the potential in your procurement function and provide support to reduce your procurement costs both in terms of overall spend but also the operational procurement costs to serve the organisation.
We assess the maturity of supplier management processes as good working relationships with suppliers can be a huge advantage especially in times of crisis.
Our services also take into account how the procurement function is structured and work with clients to develop procurement operating models which suit the needs of the organisation.
