Driving down costs on recurrent spend contractsOur Contract Lifecycle methodology combines a unique approach to procuring and managing contracts with innovative technology and a team you can rely on to deliver results. While generating savings on your behalf is our primary motivation, we'll also help deliver control and compliance and help improve supplier performance.
An approach that delivers savings and control throughout the lifecycleOur proven approach nails down the very best value at the outset of each contract - and keeps on delivering throughout the lifecycle.
Plan to succeedFirst of all we find out all we can about your current contracts. We consolidate this data onto our OPTIMiSe system to fully understand the landscape and search for opportunities to rationalise and consolidate. Using that knowledge we pull together a plan of activity and timescales, draw up a route-to-market analysis and decide the best way to procure.
Procure for best valueWe achieve best value through a combination of sector specific market expertise, research, and imaginative procurement. Whether by negotiation or tendering, we get the very best deal, on the right contractual terms to deliver cost savings and a basis for effectively managing the contract.
Manage throughout the lifecycleRegardless of the deal struck at procurement, much of that value can erode without active and effective management throughout the lifecycle. Everything we do is focussed on delivering contracts with real teeth, and then actively managing them to ensure suppliers are held to account on both costs and performance.
Technology that drives activity and collaborationManaging every aspect of your contracts over their entire lifecycle requires far more than a standard database or information repository. It needs a system that will effectively drive activity to timescale, ensuring we never drop the ball; it needs a system that enables true collaboration with our clients rather than making us more remote; and it needs a system that delivers real visibility on contract costs and supplier performance.
Which is why we have developed OPTIMiSe. It's why we have made it web-based so it is accessible to everyone. And it's why we have made it intuitive and easy to use, even for people who only need occasional access. When you outsource procurement and contract management to us, you'll be able to use the OPTIMiSe dashboard to instantly access your contract data. You can even use it for contracts you procure and manage yourself, meaning you can bring together all of your contracts in one comprehensive system.
