Procurement Transformation
Efficio’s Procurement Transformation service delivers a step-change in your procurement performance in support of the business strategy.

We rapidly identify issues in your existing Procurement organisation, provide significant and sustained benefits delivery, and a pipeline for future procurement improvement through the adoption of best practice approaches to Strategic Sourcing, Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) and Category Management. 

Our Procurement Transformation experts help:

  • Recast the operating model and create common approaches and strategies across entities and countries, e.g. due to mergers and acquisitions
  • Align the organisation to Category Management
  • Introduce Strategic Sourcing approaches
  • Develop the skills base and drive active stakeholder engagement

Challenging the status quo

Efficio challenges the status quo with category strategies. We ensure advanced sourcing levers are used when developing sourcing approaches to drive innovation in procurement, and we know how to develop an efficient supply market. 

Our team will demonstrate how to change from tactical purchasing to commercial Category Management, and we provide you with the tools and techniques to conduct powerful analytics.

Efficio is committed to driving skills and organisational improvement. We always tailor training plans to your business needs, enabling you to adopt best in class approaches, methodologies and Category Management strategies that deliver ongoing benefits to your organisation. 

Our expertise

Efficio has enabled Procurement Transformation across most sectors and multiple geographies, and clients include National Grid (benefits of over £200 million in three years), Coca-Cola, Galderma, a shared services organisation across four UK police forces, and many more.
