Delivering cost savings and efficiency gains for Advinia Health Care

Advinia Health Care is a network of 36 care homes providing the full spectrum of care services. Their senior management team has been involved in care since 1999 and works in partnership with staff, residents, family and social workers.

They pride themselves on providing homely facilities without an institutional feel. Individuality is at the heart of their care and they ensure personal choice and family wishes are respected. Their on-going training for our staff ensures a high standard of care for their residents.

Advinia engaged Auditel’s David Kendall and Elaine Kennard to provide procurement support across a number of cost areas, including energy, food and waste, whilst we sought to appoint a full-time Head of Procurement.

Mark Cash, Advinia Chief Executive Officer, says: “David and Elaine have been an integral part of the Advinia team since their appointment and have been very responsive, diligent, and professional. Their resources, knowledge, and market awareness have added value to our business and the commercial arrangement that we have with Auditel is geared to incentivise win-win procurement on benchmarked savings and provide value-for money purchasing for us on the services they provide.”

“The cost savings that Auditel have identified and implemented have been significant, well into the hundreds of thousands of pounds per annum and they now support our Head of Procurement in managing these supplies in granular detail each month.”

“Advinia as a business has gone through tremendous growth and reorganisation over recent years, and as such our approach to procurement is now more strategic than it has ever been and Auditel have played a significant part in ensuring we successfully leverage that growth.”
