“If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got”

Since the Global Recession of 2008, Procurement is one function within most organisations which has lacked investment in technology, systems and process improvement. However, in recent times, Arvo have undertaken many reviews of Procurement Procedures and Systems to ensure they are appropriate, compliant and effective for all users and stakeholders. Similarly to our Lean Procurement offering, our strategic systems reviews produce a gap-analysis and roadmap to migrate Procurement functions from good to great.

Arvo’s broad industry-agnostic expertise, facilitates the assessment, diagnosis and benchmarking against similar procurement functions, with the outcome of such strategic reviews providing each client with an action-oriented report highlighting the “As Is” vs “To Be” procurement best practice opportunities. With regards our approach, an Arvo Systems or Process Review begins with an evaluation of your current practices, which is done through a thorough analysis of your people, process, and technology.

While assessing Procurement systems and processes, blockages and opportunities to improve emerge, which fuel the resulting change management and engagement plan for all stakeholders. On conclusion of each strategic review, Arvo will implement procurement best practice, highlighting resource constraints, inefficient processes, eProcurement cost/benefit analysis and a skills gap analysis, while exploring new modes of operation to deliver a great procurement function.

Talk to us today about a review of your Procurement systems and/or processes.
