Access flexible, experienced procurement analysts on-demand with ArcBlue Virtual Analysts

ArcBlue offer a Virtual Analyst service giving you access to specialist procurement analysts as little or as often as required. We have analysts across the region who can become part of your team when you need them and they can be engaged for a set number of days per month or as a one off to meet a specific requirement. Your Virtual Analyst can sit onsite with your team or offsite, depending on your needs.

We can deliver the output from your Virtual Analyst through ArcBlue Dashboards giving you access to bespoke visualisations through any browser and we will get to know your systems to help you get the most from your data and link it to other relevant data sources to find real insights.

Our analysts will facilitate skills transfer and knowledge sharing with your team and it is much more cost effective and than hiring a full time internal resource with inbuilt cover for sickness and leave absence.

Procurement System Selection & Implementation

Navigating electronic procurement solutions

Well considered, properly implemented procurement technology is an integral enabler of strategic procurement. ArcBlue Procurement Technology solutions are carefully deployed using change management and project management principles, to ensure best practice.

Electronic procurement solutions can help you reduce costs, improve sourcing and ordering efficiency, gain compliance to contracts, increase accountability and significantly improve business intelligence on purchasing activities. 

Survey results reported that more than 50% of IT deployments fail. 

Businesses who fail often view the system deployment as an IT implementation – we see it as a change project.

ArcBlue Procurement System Selection & Implementation services enable your business to successfully select or implement electronic procurement solutions. We offer:

Procurement Technology Sourcing
