In the currently challenging economic climate, organisations are constantly battling with the desire to drive growth and profitability, whilst ensuring that they are investing in the right technologies and receiving value for money from their suppliers.
From our experience, we recognise that it is not financially feasible for organisations to employ full-time procurement specialists across the full spectrum of goods and services that can be purchased.
These challenges culminate in non-purchasing trained employees making significant purchasing decisions without the tools or knowledge of the supplier market.
This puts them at a huge disadvantage when negotiating with suppliers that have a very clear understanding of the real costs and the margins built into contracts.
When engaged at the right time, such as when negotiating prices and contracts with suppliers, independent external help that works alongside your existing operational teams can level the playing field, thereby ensuring you achieve the very best value for money from your suppliers.
