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 teams in their usage and are fully customisable to suit working practices. 

Our digital tools include: 

  • Procurement maturity assessment and recommendations 
  • Skills, behaviours and change readiness assessment and recommendations 
  • Digital dashboards and category management

Barkers’ sourcing self-assessment tools allow Procurement Leaders to hone-in on areas for improvement and understand how other modules from our digital suite can support that journey. 

Barkers provides a bespoke procurement hub enabling clients to understand organisational need and opportunity, improve planning and execution, manage risk, and improve Supplier Relationship Management capability.  Our demonstration tool below brings this to life.

We are Digital Solution Advisers and support clients to select and successfully embed digital technologies to optimise procurement functions. Our behaviour and change management expertise makes us uniquely placed to offer support and guidance to successfully oversee the introduction of cutting-edge technologies, driving higher adoption and satisfaction rates from existing teams. This in turn delivers cashable business benefits faster.

Barkers didn’t come to the table with pre-conceived ideas as to what the solution should look like.  They really started to unpick what the actual layers of the problem were.  I believe that has been a far more effective way of delivering a successful solution.
