Art of Procurement helps you maximize the value of your supplier relationships

Your ability to meet objectives is dependent upon the performance of your key suppliers. You must carefully manage relationships with suppliers while holding them accountable to their commitments. The best suppliers will come to you with innovative ideas and consider you a customer of choice. These factors must be balanced with the need to ensure that your company is maximizing its ability to invest in suppliers across the entire enterprise.

At Art of Procurement, we believe that the traditional procurement process often restricts rather than enables your ability to get the most from your supplier relationships. 

That’s why we take a different approach. 

Our Procurement, Inc. framework aligns supplier performance with your objectives. We harness procurement techniques in a way that focuses on the outcomes that are important to you – whether they include cost optimization, performance improvement, risk mitigation, or innovation enablement. 

Through our Experts On-Demand delivery model, we have expertise across a wide range of products and services, from marketing services to medical supplies, consulting to cloud storage, and landscaping to logistics. We recognize that each purchase requires a different approach, and we bring the market insights to advise you the most optimal course of action.

To get started, schedule a call today, and we will discuss your specific product and service and potential courses for action.

Head of IT SourcingCapital Equipment Company

Art of Procurement impressed me from our first conversation. They brought qualified people to the team with deep knowledge of the market space and the appropriate technical expertise. Managing a project of our size, geographic distribution and complexity, and tight timeline was not an easy undertaking but their project management and business partnering approach had the entire team marching to the same beat.

Head of Indirect ProcurementLeading Technology Consumables Firm

Philip Ideson is not like a typical procurement consultant that focuses on process, or technology alone. He puts people, and relationships, first. His approach is to demonstrate how procurement can help stakeholders achieve their business objectives. Seeking and building alignment really helped my stakeholders feel like, in procurement, they had a business partner.
