How we can help you
We have experience offering end-to-end support across the entire procurement process.
This means we can take your business through the whole journey, support you at certain sticking points, or drop in as your troubleshooting team. It’s completely up to you.
We’ll start by listening to your needs. Then we’ll make realistic suggestions, striking a balance between savings benefits and the introduction of risk in your supply chain.
We can craft a bespoke strategy for your business. One that puts you in the driving seat, allowing you to leverage maximum value from your spend.
Do you have suppliers that are critical to your business? Our service helps you to reduce risk, increase value for money and improve service levels.
Whether you’re implementing a new P2P platform, restructuring in-house functions, or managing external suppliers, we’re ready to lead the way.
Want to manage procurement within your existing organisational structure? No problem. Our toolkits help you take control of how you buy.
If you don’t have a procurement department, or you’re feeling over-stretched, we’re your go-to team. We’ll hit the ground running and slot quickly into any project.
Aster works with its clients in a variety of ways. Our engagement options are designed to optimise the value we can provide and ensure certainty of results, whilst leveraging the flexible service that differentiates us in the procurement services market. Not sure what the best model is for you? Get in touch and we can help design an approach that meets your needs.
TIME AND MATERIALS
A really flexible way to get the support and resource you need, as and when you need it. All projects take twists and turns but Aster will be there to support you every step of the way. We take pride in upfront realistic estimation of costs but the best bit is we only charge for what you use!
If you have a well defined piece of work then consider taking advantage of engaging us on a fixed price basis. This gives you certainty on cost, timescales and deliverables. We can tailor an engagement to fit your budget too. Rest assured that a fixed price engagement will not come at the expense of flexibility.
We offer a managed service to clients that need access to ongoing support, expertise and leadership, without necessarily having in house capability. You’ll get a pot of dedicated resource that can be flexed up as necessary, giving you the confidence that your procurement needs are in safe hands.
Aster partners with other companies that offer complimentary expertise such as legal, transformation, IT strategy and software advisory services. We can take a prime or subcontractor role to ensure you receive a comprehensive service and accountability of results.
