Your journey with us
There are a number of reasons why our clients have embarked on the BCR Associates journey.
Wanting to find ways in which they can improve their business operations, many of our clients come to us requiring an understanding of their issues, knowledge to overcome them and, ultimately, measurable results. Through rationalising business procurement and increasing efficiency, we not only aim to solve your issues, but set solid foundations, enabling your business to grow. Known for our strong relationships with our clients, our ‘Client Journey’ detailed below illustrates our review process. Using each stage as an opportunity to learn more about you, we will apply our in-depth industry knowledge so that we can make the right decision for your business.
Our ultimate aim is to become a key part of your outsourced management team across all services. From an initial discovery meeting through to ongoing account management, our intention is to help make your business as profitable as possible through effective cost management.
THE COST OF OUR ADVICE
As the procurement consultancy of choice for hundreds of businesses around the UK, we help businesses to manage their supply chain more efficiently, providing independent expert advice on market conditions, best practice, technical solutions and compliance.
We generate revenue through our supply chain and for most* of our procurement contracts this is in the form of a fee as a % of the contract agreed with the chosen supplier. We are proud to operate a policy of complete transparency and you will have sight of exactly how we are remunerated and any commission or uplift that has been applied to your contract.
Our tender process is completely unbiased which means that regardless of which supplier we place your contract with the commission structure remains the same. In exchange we guarantee award-winning service levels, the opportunity to build long-term business stability and more time to concentrate on your day-to-day business needs.
For additional services not included within a procurement contract, particularly energy and carbon services, a separate consultation fee may apply. Please talk to one of our Relationship Managers who will be happy to take you through all the payment options available to you.
* Dependent on client need we will consider payment for procurement contracts by an invoiced fee which will be agreed on a case-by-case basis.
