Proxima is the alternative to the conventional in-house procurement function
Think of us as an extension to your business. It's an approach that gives a profoundly different experience to your people, as well as to your suppliers. One that is impossible to replicate in-house. And one that transforms performance because of how it helps you align your non-core costs with your corporate aims.
See the change.
Driving with your eyes closed?
Management practice has not kept up with the fact that more than two-thirds of a company's operational activity is performed by suppliers - whose potential largely goes untapped. The loss of control that results from this externalisation is one of the most complex problems facing businesses globally today.
Proxima solves it.
Business is different now
Our global study of almost 2,000 large companies shows that labour costs are just 12.5% of the average company's revenues. Non-labour costs are up to 70%.
Nowadays suppliers help define you. Proxima will help them define you better. We will help you tap into and release their potential.
Our 'Catalytic Approach'
Proxima plays the role of catalyst between our clients and their suppliers. We bring suppliers to the heart of the business and align them with business objectives. We bring third party costs under control: changing the visibility of it and changing behaviour around it, asking why money is spent before ‘how much?’
Often a change in behaviour can achieve far more than a change in price…
The genie in the bottle
By applying our Catalytic Approach we looked beyond the contract itself to the entire context of what the bottle achieves for our client - as well as driving a significant increase in profits and considerable impact on performance.
We can tell countless stories like this for global businesses.
