Procurement Consultants

Procurement takes up a huge part of the Supply Chain budget.

Getting it wrong hurts the bottom line!

We’re here to help you identify and fix your procurement issues so your Supply Chain runs smoothly.

The Challenges of Procurement

In most businesses procurement takes up 60% of the Supply Chain budget.

That’s a lot of money, so it’s perfectly reasonable to try to keep procurement costs as low as possible.

The challenge with cost saving measures in procurement is do so without lowering customer service because less customer satisfaction translates into less sales.

When a Procurement Process is not working as it should be, the typical impacts you’ll see are:

  • Redundant purchases
  • Paying too much for transport
  • Lack of control
  • Customer complaints
  • Negative publicity and loss of reputation

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms we can help you identify and solve the underlying problems.
