Manage - Outsourced Procurement team
Outsource your procurement to the professionals
You already know how much time and effort it takes to handle day-to-day procurement activity. And since 80% of purchasing activity is focussed on just 20% of the total spend on average, why not let us take care of it for you?
Think of us as your virtual CIPS-qualified procurement team. We’ll follow your approved purchasing processes, maintaining catalogues linked to agreed contracts, and sourcing suppliers for requisitions.
We'll do all this, plus supplier and category management, at a fraction of what you’re spending on it now - freeing up your time to focus on business development rather than time-consuming low-value activities.
It's why so many businesses outsource their procurement to us as their virtual team. Why not follow suit?

8. No HR / Legal Risk
Every pound the company saves in procurement goes directly into the P/L bottomline and adds pounds to the profit. Great procurement management systematically looks for savings from the whole supplychain, providing the company with a competitive advantage. - We Virtually manage this process to support and identify efficiencies.
Manage supply risks
procurement management requires every category of spend and all suppliers to be analysed. Each existing supplier is evaluated separately for quality risk, financial risk, availability risk, and level of cooperation. Once the risks are identified, you can then take action to avoid or mitigate the risk.- We Virtually manage this process to support and identify efficiencies.
procurement management is not a one-time project or initiative; it is a continuous cycle of activities. Our team Virtually manage this and will keep an eye on category and supplychain performance. With every subsequent cycle, they can go deeper to find additional opportunities to bring value to the company.
