The COVID-19 Pandemic Has Had A Negative Impact On Most Businesses

The Covid-19 pandemic has touched every aspect of our lives and will have a lasting impact on the human race and the way in which we operate and live as a whole. This includes business and business owners.  This is corroborated by the YPO report* where most CEO’s globally are either experiencing or are expecting a tough road ahead for their businesses.

“The challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic on businesses has resulted in CFO’s placing a distinct focus on prioritizing cost reduction”

Cost Reduction Is Now A Major Priority For Businesses

According to the Deloitte CFO Q3 2020 Survey report close to 60% of CFO’s are prioritizing cost reduction, & cashflow optimization post the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The identification of non-core cost areas and activities, have shifted the mindset of organisations to refocus their efforts to reduce such costs and increase the value on their bottom line. To achieve this, they have turned to their procurement functions.

“Many organizations are looking at the procurement function to achieve this as numerous case studies have shown that mature procurement functions can achieve in excess of 15% YoY savings”

A well-oiled Procurement Function Can Yield 15% Year On Year Savings

Most procurement functions “flatter to deceive”. Many functions boast savings that aren’t true savings. When looking at robust savings framework one needs to measure Total Realised Sustainable Savings (TRSS). When measured against this only organisations with a high level of procurement maturity save in excess of 5% YoY savings

“Truth be told most organizations only achieve 2% realized cost savings. This primarily due to the maturity of their procurement function”

Several Challenges Hinder Organisations From Achieving Procurement Savings

Robust and mature procurement functions are proficient in the eight tenants of procurement maturity

  • Procurement Strategy
  • Strategic Sourcing
  • People
  • Procure To Pay Process
  • Reporting & documentation
  • I.T & Systems
  • Supplier Relationship management
  • B-BBEE & Compliance

“Simply put the stronger your capability and capacity is in procurement the more

$$$$$$$ you save”
