Insights Innovate, Delegate, Elevate: The Power Of Procurement As A Service

Get In Touch

A business owner who can promptly approve an order benefits from engaging a procurement service that works closely with suppliers to streamline the process efficiently.


In an uncertain economic landscape, it is essential that businesses achieve best value from the procurement process to fully meet their potential, drive sustainable cost savings, and improve outcomes. Procurement as a Service (PaaS) can empower businesses to innovate, delegate, and elevate their procurement operations, saving time, reducing costs, and driving business growth.

In this article, we’ll explore the power of PaaS and the impact it can make on your business.

Optimise The Procurement Process

Procurement processes are notoriously drawn out, especially if the purchase is complex or there are many stakeholders involved. While a meticulous approach is necessary to achieve due diligence, long procurement processes can suppress growth and deliver poor outcomes, such as supplier-related problems, data inaccuracies, and rising costs.

An innovative procurement provider, such as Quantum 360, will draw upon its extensive experience and the latest procurement technology to implement best practice and time-saving solutions, such as automation. The effects can be wide-ranging and positively influence all stages of the procurement process, from sourcing and ordering to delivery and payment. Effective PaaS providers will ensure that, by optimising the entire process, procurement activities are streamlined, promoting efficiency, compliance, and cost-effectiveness.

Saving Time & Money For Your Business

In the public sector, procurement plays a pivotal role in managing significant expenditures, overseeing an impressive £393 billion in 2022-2023 alone—an increase of seven percent from the previous year. By strategically securing the best value for investors and taxpayers, procurement not only ensures fiscal prudence but also drives organisational growth by optimising overall spending.

Procurement as a Service streamlines the time and resources that are required for businesses to manage their procurement processes. Enhanced efficiency allows staff to focus their expertise on other key business areas, free from the time-consuming demands of procurement management. By delegating this critical function to a specialist service provider, organisations can focus on their core competencies, driving innovation and growth within their respective industries.

Driving Organisational Growth

While procurement is a critical step in optimising supply chains and finding reliable and competitive suppliers, it also – if managed efficiently – can support business growth. Because procurement plays a role in every stage of the supply chain, it can be instrumental in helping businesses to avoid unreliable or uncompetitive suppliers and achieving greater transparency that improves their agility.

By streamlining the purchasing process and identifying a supplier that adopts standardised practices, it is possible to save valuable time that was once spent on complex negotiations. At Quantum 360, our engagement model is designed to maintain continuity in corporate knowledge and relationships, enabling us to ramp up or scale down operations swiftly and effectively, without losing insight or momentum. This capability allows us to provide consistently high-quality service during both peak and quieter periods, ensuring our interventions are always cost-effective and tailored precisely to your organisation’s unique needs.

Moreover, we are deeply committed to understanding and integrating with each client’s corporate culture. We adapt our service style to align closely with your company’s values and behaviours, ensuring that our partnership enhances and supports these foundational aspects throughout any engagement.

Streamline Procurement Activities

PaaS providers bring a wealth of knowledge, skills, and values to the table, understanding their clients’ needs and responding proactively to deliver value. They harness collaborative opportunities and match clients with experienced professionals who can provide the best advice and support to ensure clients feel they are receiving value for their investment.

By entrusting a PaaS provider, businesses can streamline their overall procurement process. For example, eliminating open contracts reduces paperwork and saves valuable time. Additionally, PaaS providers offer access to standardised toolkits and processes which reduces the need for clients to develop in-house resources, resulting in significant cost savings and faster delivery times.
