Challenges procurement leaders face in Universities
ARCBLUE UNIVERSITY SOLUTIONS
Setting Up Procurement for Success
Universities are complex organisations and the way that procurement is set up is central to its success in delivering better value and efficient processes for stakeholders.
We have deep expertise in procurement across the higher education sector and we can use this experience to identify opportunities to drive better value from specific categories or across the entire spend portfolio.
Setup Category Management
Many universities struggle to implement category management structures and processes due to the complexity of the organisation. We have worked with many universities to design category management that works in the context of the sector.
Provide Spend Visibility
We have developed a wide range of procurement analytics solutions which are used across the sector to categorise and visualise university procurement spend better – to give transparency to what we spend and to identify areas to deliver more value.
We have worked with many of the major universities to design procurement frameworks that are simple, efficient, adaptable and agile.
