Recruitment Company Saves 16% in Group Purchasing Framework

The client

A London headquartered recruitment company has just saved an average of 16% in their business overhead spend by joining ProSource – a series of group purchasing frameworks created and managed by Procura.

The company has several UK offices and their key areas of spend were Telecoms, IT Consumables, Stationary and Office Supplies, and Postage.

 

The challenge

As is typical within recruitment companies, the buying power was spread out throughout the business, with various managers or directors purchasing products and services on an ad-hoc basis. With no professional purchasing in place, costs and margins were steadily increasing with no consistency in pricing.

 

The solution

Designed exclusively for a community of smaller to mid-sized organisations, the ProSource Frameworks combine the collective purchasing power of many companies – enabling members to access significantly lower prices with leading suppliers of like for like goods and services.

With membership of the Frameworks requiring only a small set up charge, the firm decided to work with Procura on a review of its key indirect spend areas.

 

Key findings

  • The business was paying four times over the market rate for promotional material, enabling a rapid 75% saving
  • 30% saving in stationary
  • 11% saving in workwear
  • 18% saving in IT consumables
