As a Managing Partner, Managing Director or Finance Director for your Professional Services Practice, you will recognise that your business faces many challenges, such as compliance with cyber security and data protection requirements, adopting new technologies so you can deliver a better customer experience for your clients, and improving recruitment and retention of your vital assets, your own people.

Managing the challenges is a constant pressure for you and often done so without the necessary expertise in place. You do what you can with the resources you have.

With the rising costs of running your business, coupled with the finite level of revenue coming in means it is often difficult to think of anything but the short-term, when really, it’s the future that your business wishes to invest and make plans for.

Thankfully there is a way to meet and overcome these challenges.

Working with me and the deep network of specialists within Auditel offers an opportunity to partner with your professional services practice to provide expert, impartial and ongoing procurement advice. In other words, you can focus on your core areas knowing that you have a dedicated team of specialists looking after such areas as cost reduction, supplier tendering, contract management and monitoring.

Poor procurement is the silent killer of your organisation’s growth, leaving you without time and money to invest in your core business. Getting to grips with this area is often the key determiner of the long-term financial health of your practice.

And the even better news?

Often the work that we can do on your behalf comes as no direct cost to your business and can be factored into the savings made or the contracts negotiated on your organisation’s behalf.

But don’t just take my word for it, you can view our case studies here to read about the many successes we’ve had working with clients in the professional services sector.
