Situation 

Driven by soaring demand from several blue-chip clients, including McDonald’s, Travelodge, JD Sports and Google, Evoke’s turnover has rocketed in the last few years and is forecast to jump to over £20m in the next few years. The procurement function needed to support this level of growth. 

Solution 

Pro Outsourcing were asked to conduct a full review of the Procurement function. We introduced a standard operating procedure, driving improvements in supplier relationship management. Numerous projects were also undertaken including supplier consolidation, new supplier identification, contract negotiations, cost reductions, KPI creation and alignment of a new ERP system to work in line with production requirements to maximise efficiencies. 
 

Result 

The result was a more competent and productive department that is ready to handle current volume but also the rapid growth predicted over the next few years. 
Through near virtual interaction using secure VPN lines, Pro Outsourcing manages the tail-end spend of Evoke, running and responding to MRP signals, expediting deliveries and interacting with suppliers as if we are Evoke employees. 
A 54% improvement has been seen in otif supply along with significant savings identified and implemented through the introduction of a line-side Kanban system.

“…Pro Outsourcing have worked with Evoke on several successful projects in the past, so they were the right choice to embed a skilled outsourced/virtual team into our purchasing department. Due to the transformational growth we are experiencing it is important that purchasing is focused on managing and improving the supplier base. The results witnessed have been fantastic - we have seen a considerable shift in supplier performance and, with the introduction of team KPIs, we have seen the number of late deliveries drop substantially. Pro Outsourcing are a vital part of our Purchasing Team providing a professional representation of our company at all times…”
