To accelerate results and delivery, businesses need the right team with a full understanding of requirements. We understand this can be a challenge. Not all organizations have the procurement capacity to operate an end-to-end function or the time to train their people.

As both consultants and practitioners, we’ll turbo-boost your delivery and results using a combination of knowledge, technology, content, and data. Whether that’s training through the Efficio Academy or using our data to drive decision-making, you will successfully boost your procurement function in the long and short term.

Today’s key challenges

Filling gaps in the team

It’s not uncommon to face increased short-term workloads. This can be caused by one-off major project procurements, delays in replacing key staff members, or the integration of an acquired procurement function. 

Sizing teams to meet a business plan

Short-term or short-notice requirements, such as new business plans, can place additional strains on procurement resources. The right flexible resource augmentation is essential for bridging the gap. 

Upskilling teams

Whether it’s managing a specific project or handling new tools and processes, in-house teams sometimes need a boost. This may take the shape of specialists working alongside an existing team or talent to plug a short-term gap.

Bridging short-term gaps

Businesses maintaining a core team for regular operations often require additional resources, specific skills, or category expertise that's available on-demand, to carry them through peak procurement periods.
