Sourcing and managing your supplier base is often overlooked in any size of business. In larger, corporate organisations this can result in you working with the wrong suppliers, spending more than you should and ultimately costing your business a great deal of money. If you are missing the skillset needed to review your supplier base, the RBQ Consultancy team can complete that project. No need to recruit an employee if procurement isn’t needed on a regular basis, bring in the expertise of a consultant.

Do you have a list of items for procurement for a specific project? We can provide experienced professional buyers to complete your procurement project, we will work to your brief and budget, ensuring we negotiate on your behalf with the best, competitive and most direct suppliers for your products, keeping you updated every step of the way. We present our findings and recommendations to you, at agreed points within the project, enabling you to quickly make the decisions and approvals.

Examples of projects we have successfully completed:

Supplier reviews – current suppliers, renegotiated with existing suppliers and recommendations for new suppliers

Cost comparison project UK manufacture vs Asian sourcing

Sourcing project for promotion giveaways for a marketing agency

Sourcing of a goodie box for a large pet insurance company

Sourcing of homeware items for a property developer (Student Accommodation)

Sourcing of accessories and consumables for a property developed (luxury Furnished Apartments)

Competitor review for a large UK homeware retail

Mystery shop project for a medium sized UK retailer

Staff training on how to import from China

Trade show consultancy project for a wholesaler

European sourcing project for a large retailer

Our core skills are sourcing, importing and developing the best products within a budget. We take a brief, review the procurement budget and then aim to complete the project under budget and on time.

What next?

We will arrange a meeting to discuss the brief, budget and timeline. The meeting may be virtual or in person, and enables me to gain a full understanding of the brief, and best approach on the brief.

Following the meeting you will receive a full proposal, detailing recommendations & a strategy on how we can successfully complete your project. Along with this, you will receive a timeline, how soon the work can start, how long it will take, and how it will progress, along with the quotation.
