Procura Consulting

The Procura team supports organisations to make step-change improvements in profitability & operational performance through procurement excellence.

Procura Consulting is a division of the Rethink Group. This is based on a merger with Lifecycle Management Group. Together we provide a holistic approach to spend management which drives better outcomes at lower cost, delivered over the long term.

Procura Consulting clients face many different procurement challenges; ranging from a pressing requirement to reduce operating or sourcing costs, to supporting regional or global transformation, to optimising digital tools and delivering sustainability and ESG supply chain programmes.

Our key service lines are; cost optimisation and savings, sustainability, digitisation, procurement as a service, spend analytics, transformation and supply chain – delivered globally across all sectors and industries.

Our team, headquarted in London and Chicago, is comprised of a highly experienced group of procurement specialists, with backgrounds in procurement, supply chain, finance, operations and organisational change. Supported by a dedicated spend analytics team, our clients have access to a team of on-the ground procurement resources with category specialists across all areas of direct and indirect spend.

Organisations benefit from our deep industry experience, supply market insights and ability to effectively engage with stakeholders and suppliers at all levels, either as an extension of their team or a white labelled outsourced service.

We champion the use of entrepreneurial, risk sharing commercial models which ensure that, where possible, projects are self-funding and deliver substantial returns.

We help by:

  • Providing transparency across all external spend, turning spend data into actionable procurement insights and identifying quantified opportunities for cost optimisation and reduction via our proprietary tool ProIntell.
  • Delivering procurement cost optimisation and reduction programmes that create substantial EBITDA impact.
  • Delivering sustainability and ESG supply chain programmes
