Procurement outsourcing

Our managed procurement solutions deliver efficiencies and ongoing cashable savings from third party spend. From end-to-end complete delivery of procurement activity, to running transactional operations, we have outsourced options that make a difference.

Because flexibility is embedded in our approach, we are able to offer managed service solutions that range from fully outsourced procurement capabilities to delivering transactional activity on behalf of the organisation or for individual categories of spend.

A complete managed service

  • Strategy & governance
    Through enhanced stakeholder and supplier engagement, we are able to design procurement and sourcing strategies that deliver corporate objectives.
  • Expertise & project management
    We underpin these strategies with flexibly deployed subject matter experts to help identify and unlock savings, and manage strategy implementation through robust project management capabilities.
  • Transactional service team
    Our transactional management team deals with vendor on-boarding and requisition fulfilment.

Procurement capabilities

We provide a range of tactical procurement services, either on their own, or linked to our consultancy services. Examples of our services include:

  • Spend analysis
    Using best in class analytical tools, we can provide line-item level analysis of who spends what, with each supplier, supporting data led decision making within the organisation
  • Supplier analysis
    We use up-to-the-minute corporate health and social responsibility data to rate and rank suppliers, supporting the evaluation and on-boarding process
  • Contract analysis
    Through ad hoc or regular reviews of contracts, we can help organisations achieve best value and mitigate the risks of hidden costs within contracts

We also make use of our eProcurement technology and wider managed service model to support organisations in tendering and quotation activities.

Transactional procurement

We understand the entire source-to-pay process, and can work with all AP systems to create a complete PO fulfilment process.

We understand the resource-intensive nature of constantly managing transactional procurement activity. We use efficient, technology-driven processes to manage day-to-day operations at a reduced cost, and particularly around low-value spend. This allows our clients to focus on strategic procurement activity.

Our transactional procurement function is supports internal compliance with approved routes to market by developing and maintaining catalogues linked to agreed contracts, and sourcing suppliers for requisitions.

Our professional service support team also provide a technology-enabled helpdesk, providing managers from our client organisations with easy access to support and guidance.
