Helping Deliver All Aspects Of Your End-To-End Procurement And Supply Chain Life-Cycle
End-To-End Supply Chain Solutions
IT Procurement Specialists
With our unique background in IT procurement, we place extensive market knowledge and expertise at your disposal to execute effective commercial strategies, develop and run tenders, manage down selection evaluation processes, undertake contractual negotiations, structure the appropriate performance management measures, resolve disputes, and establish exit provisions.
Outsourcing Strategy And Management
Outsourcing can deliver significant benefits for your organisation, including the acquisition of new skills and technologies, cost control, and productivity benefits. However, outsourcing does not come without risk, and risk without effective control can incur additional costs for your organisation. We can help you understand the market dynamics around outsourcing and third-party partnerships in your sector, creating robust tender documents that reflect your desired outcomes, with the ability to identify and mitigate risks through contractual controls and a structured approach to contract management, allowing you to outsource services with confidence.
Our team will expertly guide you through opportunity identification to policy development as part of your pre-bid preparation, so that your business can respond effectively and efficiently to bids, reducing your sales cycle and increasing revenue potential.
Due Diligence Reviews
Our pre-tender submission review for both supplier bid development and buyer evaluations significantly increases your chance of a successful outcome by avoiding the tender errors and omissions that frequently prevent bidders from getting through the initial due diligence reviews.
Policies such as Social Value and Carbon Zero have also become a cornerstone of the tendering process for both buyers and suppliers. We can help you incorporate these standards and regulations into your procurement and bidding process so that you make the best possible impression on vendors and partners and achieve the best outcomes from your efforts.
