We help businesses determine the best digital strategy based on their existing investment in digital resources, new technology and capabilities, and overall business and procurement objectives. We support businesses’ need for speed and agility, as well as provide clear strategies for managing value and risk.
Human-centred design methodology facilitates re-imagining an employee’s user experience and tailoring a solution design around their behaviours. We combine this methodology with our domain expertise in procurement and solve systemic issues from the user’s perspective. This is known as an ‘inside out’ approach. This minimises friction, reduces cycle times, increases productivity, lowers risks, and improves efficiency.
Our team blends its procurement experience along with experience in design, technology services, and operations to achieve successful outcomes for businesses. We maximise the return on investment as well as enable and deliver an appropriate solution to support business and procurement needs.
We guide businesses through the strategy validation process to ensure the best fit for their vision, existing architecture, and requirements. We future-proof solutions by identifying gaps in the technology stack to ensure systems are acquired and digital technology is leveraged to the maximum.
Proof of Concepts
We guide businesses through the proof-of-concept stage by identifying and prioritising the initial key scenarios and use cases to be addressed. We often start small and build out design principles and capabilities at the businesses’ chosen pace. This achieves structured prioritisation of end-to-end user journeys.
Data Strategy and Master Data Management
A key element to digital transformation is data. To remain competitive, the ability for systems to communicate with each other and external sources is vital. We develop the data strategy and governance so businesses can pinpoint the data they need, how to get it, and how to maintain it to make informed decisions and attend to certain processes.
Existing Technology Optimisation
Procurement technology is often implemented on time, on budget, but with underwhelming results. We extract more out of businesses’ existing technology investment by redesigning outdated processes and re-configuring ineffective systems. We help businesses identify whether existing technology can be optimised in its current state so businesses can delay, reduce, or eliminate spend on peripheral technology solutions.
Regardless of maturity, it is fundamental for the procurement team to be equipped with the right kind of tools and solutions so they can make confident decisions and act rapidly in a fast-changing world. We provide the necessary structured thinking and tools to enable a successful, balanced procurement analytics solution, which unlocks actionable insights, predictions, and recommendations.
