Procurement projects and assignment delivered. On-Demand

The procurement requirements of an organisation are continually changing and sometimes difficult to predict.

Growth, projects, absence, recruitment challenges and stretch targets cause challenges in managing resource, expertise and delivery, and the traditional approach of hiring interims to fill the gap just takes on fixed cost rather than a delivery outcome.

At the same time, planning and implementing a complex change project where potential external partners are vetted, tenders issued, presentations made – and all of this before the successful bidder gets anywhere near to starting any actual work – can seem like overkill.

The solution is ON-DEMAND

Procura have created a suite of easy to access services which allow our clients to benefit from our expertise, knowledge and capacity as and when its needed – with organisations only paying for precisely what is required.

The outcome:  Less cost, maximum impact.

On-Demand puts you in control. Switching on experienced procurement resource, as and when you need it;

  • Project-by-project
  • Pay only for what is needed
  • Outcome-based incentivisation
  • Sector/category expertise and leveraging Procura knowledge
  • On-site or remote (or an optimum mix)
  • Turn on and off as needed
