“Ebit have proved to be a valuable business partner, delivering return on investment in a number of ways during our relationship. Having worked with Ebit for two years we were impressed with their different approach compared to other procurement managed service providers. Integrated successfully as part of the overall team they worked proactively to identify opportunities across a wide range of areas, delivering savings and return on investment from what was a competitive fee structure. Additionally though they have added real value from business improvement and supporting our agenda to transform the procurement function. Their flexible resource model meant we could make changes throughout our working relationship to match against what we needed, when we need it. We have also used their contract management system which they have proactively run for us, driving contract compliance to over 90%.”

Chris Thomson - Group Procurement Director

“EBIT Business Solutions have impressed with their different approach. They have been prepared to roll their sleeves up as part of the business team and work hard to understand the business, its culture, and its requirements before starting negotiations. They have provided a complete procurement service at a competitive price and drawn on their wide experience of doing this role ‘on the inside’ to deliver significant savings. They quickly implemented some early results and rapidly analysed a significant part of our cost base. They spent time with internal teams to agree a collaborative approach and set priorities, and made recommendations on which projects were likely to deliver cost reductions. They ran procurement activity from beginning to end, taking the lead in doing the groundwork, conducting negotiations, drafting contracts and supporting implementation.

Ebit also gave the required focus to service, quality and value, rather than simply focusing on price, important though that was!”

"Ebit's hands on leadership, taking procurement and associated governance and offering an ‘end to end’ service was critical from our perspective and their retail knowledge has proved invaluable, shortening the learning process and facilitating some quick and valuable early wins and impressive longer term benefits, whilst always, always, always placing quality and service at the forefront of their goals."

“We have used Procurement Cost Consultancies in the past with mixed results. Working with Ebit has been a very pleasing and different experience. Ebit’s extensive retail experience is evident and they have worked closely on site to understand the business further in order to make recommendations, helping us achieve significant savings across multiple business areas whilst always focusing on service.”

Dale Chrisitlaw - CFO
The White Company

“We have worked with profit consultants in the past who have come in and recommended savings and then left before implementation. Ebit Business Solutions are different. They have spent time in the business really trying to understand stakeholder’s requirements, negotiating hard on contracts and helping to facilitate the change to new suppliers.

Ebit have worked closely with our team to ensure we did not compromise on service or quality but at the same time achieving better pricing. John and his team have done a thoroughly professional job that has delivered great value for money .”
