Better spend management
information

Fragmented sourcing. Unstructured data. Incomplete recording systems. Inactive contracted KPIs. When you’re facing these process and administrative challenges you’re not alone, as many public sector procurement departments struggle with aligning these issues to cash savings targets and capacity objectives.

Progora is an e-procurement platform that helps you overcome these challenges, giving you structured data to streamline supplier management and enable more informed procurement decisions to help meet objectives.

How it Works

For Users

  • Progora gives users a single marketplace view for buying products and services
  • Enhance search for what they need, see all compliant suppliers and sort by the most appropriate criteria, be it MEAT, lowest price or something else
  • Complete the purchase within the system – no more punching out to supplier websites and no more confusion about frameworks
  • Make purchasing faster and easier while reducing rogue procurement

For Procurement

  • Progora gives you more control over procurement processes, and the supply chain
  • With real-time management information and analytics, you have an accurate picture of buying patterns
  • This enables you to monitor compliance, contract KPIs and tail-end spend
  • Get data on market pricing and cost controls, share benchmarks, negotiate with suppliers and maximise savings
  • Assign suppliers to particular agreements, product categories or service types
  • Provide supplier control at a framework/ contract level whilst making it visible online to allow all users to procure through the correct supply chain

What Procurement Professionals Say

"We were in a frustrating situation, and I know it’s a common one in the public sector. Our suppliers weren’t universally compliant and their prices didn’t stack up. Stakeholders within the organisation constantly complained about the service, and procurement staff were demoralised – it felt like we were fighting an uphill battle.

Progora gave us the visibility we needed to improve relationships with internal users and external suppliers. All procurement now goes through the central marketplace, so for end users it feels like online shopping and it’s easy to buy on framework.

We use the real-time dashboards to track KPIs, help meet savings targets and streamline reporting internally and for the NAO. Crucially, we also get market price comparison data, so we can benchmark suppliers and ensure we’re getting value for money.

Progora was easy to implement – it wasn’t a whole new, complex system and there wasn’t any integration as such. It just sits on top of our existing ERP and finance systems, meaning we started getting a return on investment fast."
