Collaborative Purchasing

How can Collaborative Purchasing benefit your business?

At SCB Procurement Solutions, we feel businesses should no longer see other local organisations as opponents, instead we should all be embracing the opportunities collaboration holds.

Collaborative purchasing is a fantastic approach for small businesses to gain a competitive advantage when purchasing the indirect products every business need (stationary, IT, Telecoms, cleaning etc). By working with similar minded local organisations, the savings achievable are staggering.

To better explain the different aspects of Collaborative Purchasing, we have created a series of five presentations, each addressing a different topic.

Please view the below presentations and at the end, if you still have questions or would like to discuss how collaborative purchasing could work for your situation please email our team who will be happy to assist you in any way we can.

In this presentation we outline in detail the process of creating and operating a collaborative purchasing network, understanding the different types of network to choose and the differences between a self-managed or third-party managed network.
