Nationwide economies of scale

Client: Sports betting and gaming

Maistro service: Analysis + Sourcing + Contracting
CHALLENGE

With several large facilities across the UK, this firm was procuring services such as security, maintenance and event management independently for each site. This meant varying standards of service and unnecessarily high costs. They needed a coordinated approach to buying that would be accessible to all colleagues.

WHAT WE DID

Understanding the current situation is always the first step. We conducted a full analysis of their spend, suppliers and practices to identify areas with potential for greater efficiency. The aim: to enable buyers from across the company to buy from pre-approved service providers and reduce costs.

THE RESULT

With centralised procurement processes across the whole estate, the business now benefits from both better control and economies of scale. In some cases, saving up to 30% a year on services. Introducing nationwide service providers for maintenance and security, we established easier management processes and uniformity of services. And the Maistro platform dashboard gives head office full visibility on all other ad hoc spending.

  • Detailed analysis to identify issues
