With a wide network of stores and online services, our client is a household name in the UK’s DIY and home improvement market.
Having started our collaboration by creating a clear vision and operating model for procurement that aligned with the client’s overall strategy. This helped us define the role and value of indirect procurement in the business and how to leverage it for maximum impact. Along the way, we built strong relationships with stakeholders across the business functions, becoming their trusted advisors.
Stakeholders want to work with us because they see the benefits we have brought.
We then developed and continuously updated a pipeline of strategic and operational activities that addressed the business needs. We continue to deliver commercial value and business improvement through these activities.
Our on-site team of senior indirect procurement practitioners and subject matter experts have transformed the indirect procurement process , engaging the business in achieving significant service improvements and cost savings.
With the support of stakeholders across the business, we identified over 90 potential projects that covered various business functions, such as:
- HR Benefits
- HR/ Operations
- Learning & Development
- Logistics/ Property
- Loss Prevention
- People, Culture & HR
We have already completed projects that deliver savings in excess of £2.1m. This equates to 9% of the existing spend across these categories that has been saved from the budget this year.
We also have a current pipeline of projects in progress which is on target to deliver additional savings in excess of £1.1m we are forecasting total savings in excess of £3.2 million this year on these currently agreed projects.
Our team also continues to scope new projects with key stakeholders and we are currently working on a further 10+ projects to add to the pipeline.
