Commercial

With experience in supplier evaluation and the delivery of expert advice to some of the largest procurements globally since 2001, we’ve seen a great deal of change in the procurement industry over the years. This experience is of great importance to the private sector, where organisations are under increasing pressure to deliver shareholder value whilst reducing risk and costs and meeting increasing social value, environmental and ethical sourcing targets.

For Buyers

Alongside the use of AWARD®, our commercial customers rely heavily on our thought leadership in supplier evaluation and strategic procurement to enhance their processes and to save time and money. Commerce Decisions supports its clients in the reduction of risk associated with unfavourable contracts and the potential damage to reputation that can ensue.

We can support you in:

  • Attaining more favourable contracts from suppliers
  • Reducing the risk of project failure
  • Reducing the time and cost taken to procure complex, strategic projects
  • Meeting environmental and sustainability targets as a result of increased efficiencies and online collaboration
  • Meeting social value and ethical sourcing targets.

Regardless of the maturity of your procurement function, Commerce Decisions can help you and your organisation deliver efficiencies and improvements whilst delivering transparency and defensibility.
