Identify, deliver and maintain benefits and efficiencies in your Supply Chain

Building a resilient, efficient and cost-effective supply chain is critical for organisations.

Supply chain disruptions have become common place, and the need to be resilient, technology enabled and cost conscious to protect the bottom line and your brand has never been more important.

With the historical focus on creating Just in Time (JIT), consolidated and low-cost supply chains, organisations now fear that they have lost or losing key resilience, transparency and management of their supply chains, creating challenges across quick and uncontrollable shifts in costs and working capital, supplier failure and reputational damage.

Procura Consulting brings a holistic approach to supply chain optimisation. Evaluating strategic levers such as network design, integrating inventory management and working capital optimisation, as well as the more operational issues of cost and process efficiency.

We typically follow a three-step process to develop a robust third-party risk supply chain optimisation strategy for your organisation, with tangible actions plans and rolled up sleeves delivery.

Step 1: Identify

Deep data analysis provides the keys to unlocking benefits. Our teams map, analyse, optimise and visualise to identify where and how to realise cost benefits and operational efficiencies.

Step 2: Delivery

We manage the market, engage providers supported by technology and drive the optimum balance of cost and service for your organisation.

Step 3: Maintain

We ensure policies and processes are carefully embedded to enable benefits to be realised and foster ongoing and continuous improvement across your supply chain.
