Dataction Analytics is focused on providing Procurement Analytics and Support services to supplement client’s internal Procurement Team with world-class research, analytics, execution and operational capabilities, so that our client’s Procurement Team can focus on negotiating better deals and managing key stakeholder and supplier relationships.
We configure each engagement to best fit the specific requirement of our client’s Procurement function. Our engagement model is highly flexible, which allows our clients to leverage different procurement skills without having to hire a full-time resource for each skill. Our clients have achieved an excellent Return On Investment due to this flexibility.
Some of the common benefits that clients can expect by engaging Dataction include:
Saving of 30% and upwards of their buyer’s time which can be used for strategic activities
Direct cost-cutting of 20% and upwards in resource costs, due to the time saved in resource intensive activities
Standardized templates and execution approach helps maintain consistent quality of delivery
At Dataction, we firmly believe that your existing Procurement Team is best positioned to deliver business objectives given their deep insights about your company and its vendor ecosystem. Dataction’s engagement model is therefore based on complementing your current team with our analysts who can lead or support various activities ranging from routine, tactical to highly complex and strategic activities. The distribution of activities is mutually agreed between the Buyer and the Analyst given that each category or project will be different and as such will need a bespoke engagement model.
Dataction views Procurement as one of the key influencers to the bottom-line and it is our mission to empower your Procurement Team with a support framework that helps maximise procurement impact.
