Trusted in Delivery

Why using a procurement consultancy makes sense right now.

In the context of Covid-19, procurement’s contribution to the organization has never been more critical, whether supporting survival or enabling investment for the future.

  • 66% of companies are now planning to pursue cost reduction efforts in the short to medium term compared with 38% before the pandemic began (1).
  • Cost management and cash conservation is without doubt the greatest priority for the majority of Chief Procurement Officers at this time, with approximately 8 times more day-to-day focus than other areas (2).
  • 86% of procurement leaders observed some level of procurement capability gaps in their teams as a result of the Covid-19 impact (3).
  • Over half of procurement leaders believe that their current teams do not have sufficient levels of skills and capabilities to deliver on their procurement strategy (4).
