Case Study

Amey FM work across the education sector, the Ministry of Justice, and a number of NHS trusts. Amey began working with EF-group several years ago on supplier management across all education contracts and NHS trusts to help facilitate a common P2P ordering portal within the business.

Amey had a clear objective at the outset, which was to reduce cost and administration without putting an additional burden on the supply chain or contracts.

EF-group managed to implement this seamlessly with no disruption to the business and kept Amey informed of all steps and processes along the way.

Amey is consistently supported by an account management team with a direct line into the EF-group directors, giving Amey the peace of mind that they matter, and it is indeed a true partnership.

EF-group have constantly been able to demonstrate the value they add in terms of cost management and cost reduction against the administration, and as such EF-group have now been tasked with managing all the company’s additional non-food spend, which includes electrical wholesalers through to stationery via a social enterprise supplier.

Amey manages twenty-four contracts with 342 delivery points, so with an internal cost of £45.00 to process one invoice, we were spending a minimum of £800k per annum on administration efforts, and that is assuming one delivery per week.
