Procurement Consulting

How we solve your
procurement challenges

Tailored to
suit your needs

We have experience offering end-to-end support across the entire procurement process, delivering value and ensuring certainty of results.

This means we can take your business through the whole procurement journey, support you at certain sticking points, or drop in as your troubleshooting team. It’s a completely flexible service that differentiates us in the Procurement services market.

What we do

Spend
and risk

Do you know what you’re spending your IT budget on? Do you have sight of your third party risk profile? Would you like to unlock the value of your supplier spend?

Resource
and capacity

Do you have the relevant procurement capability in house? Are your resources stretched too thin to do what you need? Do you have strategic programs that require commercial leadership?

Performance
and maturity

Do you spend your time buying rather than managing? Are your procurement processes broken, over engineered or non-existent? Do your suppliers manage you rather than the other way around?

How we work

Aster works with its clients in a variety of ways. Our engagement options are designed to optimise your budget, the value we can provide and deliver 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.

Fixed price

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.

Time &
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 we’ll 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!

Managed
service

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.
