We are Strategic Procurement Solution Experts | Efficio UK

Who we are

Efficio is the world’s largest procurement consultancy operating across ten offices in Europe, North America and the Middle East.

We help organisations reduce costs, improve internal processes and upskill their procurement teams so that they can realise cost savings faster. We aim to ensure savings are measurable and sustainable – delivering greater value for your business over the longer term. 

We identify, deliver and sustain savings using the Procurement Engine, a unique and highly efficient deployment model combining people, knowledge and technology. It enables our client teams to transform their procurement capabilities by accessing the on-demand expertise and know-how of our 400+ consultants, in combination with our bespoke procurement technology platform eFlow.

At the heart of our technology is the collective procurement knowledge and category expertise of our highly experienced consultants. They have worked with hundreds of large and mid-sized global organisations from across the private and public sector over many years

We draw on this extraordinary pool of knowledge and content to benchmark and ultimately transform your organisation’s procurement capabilities.

The results are greater cost savings delivered faster and more sustainably, allowing your organisation to operate more efficiently and compete more effectively.

How we work

We support our clients through a range of deployment models, tailoring our solution to your individual needs. Move your mouse over the panel for more details

Integrated Technology Platform

Efficio uses eFlow, our proprietary technology platform to enhance our delivery capability for clients. eFlow has been designed by procurement professionals for procurement professionals. It changes the traditional linear sourcing and category management process to a repeatable, more cyclical procurement lifecycle, which addresses all elements of the procurement process

Our teams use eFlow because it brings efficiencies during every engagement. We can also provide it on an ongoing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis to support longer-term value creation.

Opportunity Assessment

A typical starting point is a four to eight-week opportunity assessment. These assessments can be mobilised quickly, supporting a swift and practical approach to identifying savings opportunities.

Based on our findings, you can decide whether to explore a broader collaboration opportunity or a more focused approach, for example category-specific support or spend analytics.

We can also benchmark your procurement function across a range of dimensions to assess effectiveness and identify areas for further development. Through our Procurement Engine service, we can support your existing team through access to our people, knowledge and technology.

Procurement Consulting

We work in partnership with your procurement team to deliver savings and drive value through structured procurement programmes.

By using a mix of co-working, training and technology implementation, we share our global knowledge, best practices and tools with our client teams.

Our aim is to improve the speed and quality of your procurement capability through access to better data, improved sourcing approaches, and the use of technology-enabled solutions to drive efficiencies. At the same time, we enhance the overall effectiveness of your procurement team, which is crucial to long-term self-sufficiency and savings sustainability.

We deliver notable ROI savings in minimal time through measurable and sustainable cost reductions. Our fee structure is linked to results, demonstrating the enormous confidence we have in our approach.

Managed Services

Our deployment model is highly flexible, typically ranging from six-month consulting projects to multi-year Procurement Engine managed services.

Our Procurement Engine involves us working alongside your in-house procurement team to implement and sustain tangible procurement benefits over time. Through our Procurement Engine model, your team will benefit from advanced analysis, category expertise and a repository of rich content and data.

We focus on driving long-lasting benefits by helping you to continue the process of identifying substantial and measurable cost-reduction opportunities, generating improved levels of compliance and sustainability, and uplifting your procurement function.
