Sourcing & Procurement

Procurement in 2022 looks very different than it did 5 years ago. This radical and rapid change is transforming how organisations source and procure the various goods and services they need to operate. As a result, new strategies, skills, knowledge, and tools are emerging to address today’s — and tomorrow’s — shifting challenges and opportunities.   This new way of thinking is to improve the healthcare delivery process to meet new challenges for the 21st century.

Innova’s Sourcing and Procurement practice has a proven track record of tackling these challenges and enabling our clients like the NHS, Spire, etc. to sustain measurable and impactful results. This has been very evident when needing to react extremely quickly and decisively to a global pandemic. Enabling the UK to be one of the first developed countries to have a network of emergency hospitals.  We also worked on vaccination centres, putting the country in a much stronger position than most, in order to continue with the normal daily workings of life.

Logistics & Distribution

Logistics and distribution networks are highly complex, making the movement of products and materials from point to point on a global scale a significant challenge for many companies. Major logistics disruptions can create a ripple effect across global supply chains that ultimately cause goods to pile up in storage, impacting those ships on their way to ports through diversion or being slowed down as they arrive at major transit hubs, thereby restricting global trade flows and limiting access for businesses to import products and refill their stocks of inventory.

We help address such issues supporting partners with their distribution network strategy, tapping into our own third-party logistics (3PL) operation to deliver process and transportation optimisation.

Storage

Warehouses have always served as a vital hub in the flow of goods within a supply chain. But in today’s economic climate, they also serve as a key source of competitive advantage combined with logistics in order to deliver fast, cost-efficient, and increasingly flexible warehousing operations.

With thousands of different types and forms of goods being stored in our warehouses, every square metre of our warehousing space must be optimally utilised to ensure specific goods can be retrieved, processed, and delivered as fast as possible. The result is a high-speed, technology-driven environment with the widespread adoption of pallet or item-level tagging — using low-cost, miniscule identification devices such as RFID — barcode scanners. Barcode readers capture data transmitted from each pallet as it arrives. We also have the capability to take care of all unusual sized items that may not fit into a standard pallet format.
