Combining insight and inspiration
Through our procurement services, Eraneos Group encounters a wide range of questions from our clients. However, these are no longer just about how procurement can help you deliver better, faster, or cheaper services. We understand that today, your procurement services must consider digitalization, supply security, compliance, and organizational resilience while helping to pave the way to a sustainable future.
Turning analysis into action
A good understanding of total procurement spend should be the starting point for any procurement strategy. Spend analytics is one of the key tools for organizations to proactively identify savings, opportunities, supply risks, and contract compliance issues. Today, supporting digital solutions are available that automate these activities to a large extent.
Eraneos supports you in the (inter)national execution and interpretation of spend analysis based on standard or tailored digital solutions. As such, we translate the insights gained from spend analytics and contract & benefits analysis into an appropriate category plan and procurement strategy, taking into account your desired level of professionalization.
Operational excellence and cost control are essential. At the same time, the reduction of organizational risk with respect to supply chains and markets heightens your supply chain viability. Collaboration in the form of joint product development with suppliers can also lead to better market positioning. Eraneos can support you to optimize your procurement strategy so your activities are aligned with and contribute to your overall business goals and interests.
Optimizations and implementations
We can support you in managing the procurement optimizations or implementations you identify so you can focus on your day-to-day business. We ensure that identified improvements will be conducted professionally. Whether they relate to procurement enablers such as your procurement strategy, organization, staff, systems, or performance management, or your category plans, sourcing strategies, and supply processes (source to contract, procure to pay, e-SRM).
With over 25 years of experience in the field of sourcing, Eraneos can provide you with the best practices, templates, tools, consultancy, and modeling for every phase of a sourcing project – for both the private and public sectors (including European tendering). We support you in realizing your local or global sourcing initiatives, contract creation and negotiations, and outsourcing. We’re here to help you with your sourcing initiative – regardless of its complexity.
Incorporate compliance & sustainability into your agenda
How do you cope with an increasing level of regulation? How strongly is your procurement organization affected by maverick buying? What measures have been taken to reduce this and how effective are these? Does your procurement organization maintain adequate supplier risk management or provide the desired insights into your supply chain? We assess your procurement operations and help you find answers to these questions and more.
In addition, many organizations now include sustainable procurement as part of their long-term strategy. Society, customers, and both current/future employees have increased expectations here. Organizations will be subject to stronger sustainability regulations in the future. Most companies may be aware of this criticality but continue to struggle with the integration of sustainable procurement initiatives. That’s why we’re on hand to help you implement sustainability within your procurement organization.
