Building Strong Business Relationships

Essential to successful procurement, business-to-business vendor and buyer relationships, through necessity, have to be properly managed to achieve the different desired outcomes required by each party.

Because vendors and buyers have competing goals these differences can, if the relationship is not properly managed, cause conflict, low productivity through protracted dispute resolution, unprofitable vendor margins necessary to sustain the relationship and in the worst case scenario, an irretrievable breakdown in the relationship and perhaps litigation.

Rely On Us

In an uncertain world you can rely on Procuright to look out for our clients' interests and pro-actively manage these relationships.

We regularly review our supply chain, adding and removing suppliers as required. And we oversee and monitor supplier performance, which is informed by our attendance at regular supplier contract performance review meetings with our clients, and resolve any small issues before they might otherwise be allowed to become insurmountable.

We include unlimited client support and advice via telephone and email; pro-active contract management; we’ll handle renewals and go to market at the ideal time of year to re-contract. We’ll meet with you on a regular basis to review your requirements and meet with suppliers too to ensure you’re achieving successful category outcomes. And we’ll be available to undertake additional projects and category management.

Our Methodology

Our aim is to assist our clients achieve direct and indirect process and efficiency savings through:

Rationalisation of expenditure

The first step in any indirect procurement review is to justify with logical reasoning current spending. For example a telephone system is a business necessity but the system in use may be outdated, expensive to maintain and limit the flexibility of your communications and team's output.

Consolidation of spending and reducing the number of suppliers

Many businesses have added suppliers to their supply chain over time and there is common consent that Tail Spend (low value purchases and maverick spend) if not properly managed can account for 80% of a company’s suppliers but only 20% of spending.

Ensuring legal and regulatory compliance

For example, through our partner organisations we can provide guidance on ESOS compliance; Health & Safety; financial management and business funding; and HR Support.

Managing supplier relationships

Business-to-business vendor and buyer relationships have to be properly managed to achieve the different desired outcomes required by each party. Because vendors and buyers have competing goals these differences can, if the relationship is not properly managed, cause an irretrievable breakdown in the relationship.

Mitigation of risk

Through our partner organisations our clients have access to insurance and risk management services.

Improvements to internal systems and processes

Procurement outsourcing reduces the need for in-house expertise and administration and frees up time within a business to concentrate on core activities.
