High-level examination of all key aspects of the client’s purchase-to-pay processes and how they are managed across the organisation’s different departments.
Objectives of the project
High-level examination of all key aspects of the client’s purchase-to-pay processes and how they are managed across the organisation’s different departments. The overall approach was to analyse the way the organisation presently operates, with a view to identifying potential cost savings and other improvement opportunities.
Measurable & concrete results
Identified a requirement for a procurement transformation, with potential savings in excess of over €90m on strategic sourcing elements alone.
The key areas we focused on were:
- Strategy and Organisation – instigation of clear policies and procurement strategy
- Sourcing – greater awareness of contracts across the business and more rigourous supplier management processes
- Instigation of a strategic sourcing programme to manage the large tail of suppliers
- Better use of technology to manage the P2P process (which is currently labour intensive and has minimal use of Purchase Orders).
