Supply chain management and remote procurement

We recognise the challenges being faced by organisations in this difficult time and are looking at ways in which we can flex our procurement services to suit these requirements

Adapting the process

Currently, we have a range of services being deployed and successfully delivered remotely to meet ongoing client needs and objectives. These solutions do typically require a slight amendment to the way we engage with clients as we move from face to face to online meetings but the governance and design principles behind the products remain to ensure best client outcomes.

A number of these services not only meet the new demands within the current challenging environment but will establish a base from which client can accelerate benefits as soon as we return to normal ways of working. Continued reporting and stakeholder communications ensure all parties are fully appraised throughout the engagement.
