Procurement Cost Reduction

Procura Consulting helps organisations to deliver benefits to their bottom line and maximise the value that procurement excellence can deliver.

Our experienced team brings a proven track record of market knowledge, insight, engagement and execution to the table, ensuring that our cost reduction activity delivers clear cut results (typically measured in double digit saving percentages) and lasting return on investment

Our Cost Reduction Programmes deliver:

  • Cost reduction using strategic sourcing techniques that are based upon Category Management principles
  • Stakeholder engagement and inclusion to ensure sustainable results after each programme is complete
  • New and innovative approaches to Spend Categories - considering total cost of ownership, identifying and delivering unit price improvement and service level enhancements that drive bottom line benefits and other business efficiencies
  • A focus on execution and quantifiable results

 

The Procura approach

Our team has deep supply market and category knowledge which is leveraged using a structured sourcing methodology.

From creating category baselines, through supply market analysis and sourcing strategy creation, we help organisations to develop bespoke solutions that deliver tangible results.

Our process includes using advanced techniques and levers for direct and indirect spend areas including:

  • Strategic sourcing
  • E-sourcing and e-auctions
  • Specification optimisation
  • Demand management
  • Process optimisation
  • Low cost country sourcing
  • Outsourcing

 

Once an appropriate strategy is identified, Procura can either self-deliver or support your existing team to run RFx processes, structured negotiations and the contracting process to make sure that all identified benefits are realised.
