Reduce your Procurement Costs
Our procurement strategists take the pulse of purchasing within your organisation.
By looking at both proactive procurement – ongoing category management – and day-to-day transactional procurement, they are able to provide clarity on how you measure up against best practice and provide effective, proven methods that deliver improved practice and profitability.
ERA UK have been managing cost and supplier relationships – and delivering significant financial savings – on behalf of clients for twenty five years. During that time the world in which they operate has changed significantly.
Procurement itself has gone on a journey in that time – rebranded from ‘purchasing’ and beginning to gain a foothold as a strategic presence in some boardrooms. For some organisations though, the time and resource required for a strategic overhaul of the way in which goods and services are acquired simply isn’t there.
Our team offers a Procurement Capability Review that – with minimal intrusion – can give you a comprehensive view of how well your purchasing squares up to best practice. When an average 70% of turnover is spent within the supply chain, isn’t it time you optimised your supply relationships and deliver true value from your external resources?

Taking in the way in which any organisations works is difficult. Each organisation has its own traditions, peculiarities and ways of doing this. Truly getting to grips with any organisations spending habits is time consuming and requires engagement with a range of stakeholders from multiple departments.
Our process takes all of this into account.
Any genuine wide ranging review within an organisation requires some hard work and should only be entered into when tangible rewards are possible.
