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.
A typical starting point is a four to eight-week opportunity assessment. These assessments can be mobilized 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.
We work in partnership with your procurement team to deliver savings and drive value through structured procurement programs.
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.
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.
