ERA believes that all organisations deserve the best supplier relationships at the lowest cost. However, ERA’s 20+ years of experience in delivering over 18,000 client projects consistently shows that the vast majority of companies are systematically over-paying their suppliers.
How we do it
Although ERA is a leader in the best practices of procurement, we’ve also discovered these best practices alone cannot deliver the most effective and lowest cost, supplier relationships. The real key is to understand each of your suppliers’ businesses and industries as well you as understand your own. That intimate understanding and “insider” knowledge can be leveraged to structure relationships that take full advantage of the inherently unique attributes and inner workings within their industries.
Not only do ERA specialists understand the unique inner workings within each of the suppliers’ world, they have real time data on changes in the suppliers’ markets and behaviours, locally, across the country, and even other parts of the world. As a global company, ERA’s network of specialists spans five continents, allowing us to benchmark costs and spending, witness the latest supplier innovations, and to know what’s really possible.
How we work with our clients
We want to design a working relationship that’s best for the client, and we find that every client’s situation is different. So, we are very flexible in how we work with companies and other organisations.
We find that executives and their staff are so busy they can’t afford the time, resources, or distraction to take on any new projects. This is why most clients prefer that ERA invests all the resources and expertise necessary to analyse, execute, monitor, and manage the entire program. They want us to deliver the additional cash flow and transfer knowledge with the least impact to their staffs.
Are you leaving money on table?
