Digital Services

Transforming Procurement

With a new generation of digital tools

Barkers has developed a unique range of Digital Procurement Services tools to support our clients.  Our tools are unique because they are built by procurement and commercial practitioners not IT product development teams working off poorly defined system requirements. 

Using the latest generation of industry standard tools, we’ve built workflow automation, data analytics and category planning tools that work in the real world.  Each tool subscription comes with the professional services needed to engage your team in their usage and customise the solution to the ways of working you need.

Intro BUSINESS NEED Interactive data from multiple sources shows business needs and trends by category, supplier, buyer, business unit and geography. This allows teams to explore the data most relevant to them, understanding the impacts on their budget, employees and suppliers. Intro Opportunity The projects prioritised for delivery in the opportunity plan give stakeholders an instant view of the market being managed, the procurement resources allocated and precisely where and when value will be delivered. The outcome being an assessment and prioritisation of opportunity by buyer based on market analysis and stakeholder buy-in. Intro PLAN AND EXECUTE Once the opportunities are agreed, the detailed execution plan can be built. Procurement and Commercial activities are tracked alongside stakeholder influence and communications need. This helps procurement leaders know which stakeholders need influencing when and on what topics. Everybody stays focused on the key relationships needed to deliver the plan to time, cost and quality constraints. Intro LOCK IN VALUE As the plan is delivered stakeholders can see precisely when the business benefits will be delivered. Benefit are tracked alongside business risks so a balance view can be maintained. Benefits can also be illustrated geographically giving an instant view of which region is contributing most to the bottom line. Intro SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT Consistently communicate key messages to all your suppliers. Using our APP all your company’s executives can be briefed on the latest ranking of supplier performance, relevant news and key messages immediately before or even during supplier meetings.
