We use our expertise in the Care Sector here at Marr Procurement to offer our clients a service that clearly delivers. A key element of this is our Strategic Sourcing work.
We use our 3 step process to achieve the best savings for our clients.
Using our 3 step plan, Marr Procurement has experience of buying a wide range of goods and services, including; insurance services, professional services, temporary labour agency services, all areas of indirect procurement, (i.e. goods not for profit), and a large number of ‘goods for profit’ spend areas.
1. Find Savings
Identifying where the savings are: the Marr Procurement analytics team will carry out an opportunity assessment of your spend to identify savings opportunities. Based on the large number of recent sourcing projects we have been involved in, we are well placed to help advise clients quickly whether or not a savings opportunity exists. Using our comprehensive list of qualification criteria the Marr Procurement sourcing team will work as part of your team to create and deliver a sourcing strategy designed to prioritise savings opportunities, unlock savings fast and ensure supply side risk is managed effectively.
2. Get savings
Marr Procurement will then manage, again working as part of your team, any number of competitive tender processes thoroughly and professionally to ensure your organisation secures the right result appropriate for your business. Delivering savings is not all about cutting cost; balancing the quality of the product or service with the right price is vital. Key also is ensuring that the product or service being bought yields the best operational outcome.
3. Keep savings
It is critical that when a new supplier is appointed, or an incumbent suppliers’ contract is renewed, the savings and value delivered at the outset of such supply agreements is not lost through the life of the agreement. Marr Procurement offers clients a contract management service which ensures the value delivered when a new supply agreement is signed, isn’t lost through the life of the supply agreement. This loss of value is sometimes called contract leakage; we work with clients to minimise such contract leakage by designing simple yet effective key performance indicators and service level agreements during the contract negotiation phase and then, using Contracts Management software designed exclusively for Marr Procurement the contractual commitments are tracked to ensure the operational performance of the new supply agreement is aligned with the original supply agreement.
