Helping you to build back better

The public sector faces the challenge of continuing to provide vital, world-class services despite unprecedented pressure on resources – both human and financial.

If we’re going to rise to this challenge, all public sector organisations need to take steps to ensure they manage every pound and every hour as effectively and efficiently as possible.

That means finding ways to save money, generate money and recover money within your own operations. But it also means considering social value obligations. Spent right, every pound in the public purse has the power to strengthen supply chains and help the UK economy recover.

We can support you with:

  • easy ways to make immediate cost savings
  • ethical debt resolution services
  • achieving the best value, balanced with sustainability

While also:

  • supporting supply chain cash flow
  • helping to sustain local businesses

Generate

After investigating how to make savings, the next logical step is to examine how you can generate extra revenue for your organisation. One simple way of doing that is through rebates – available with procurement cards.

  • Payment Solutions

    Procurement cards can give you access to valuable rebates. They come in 3 forms – physical, virtual or lodged cards.

Recover

Now, more than ever, the need to maximise recoveries is crucial – whether it’s in the form of debt that is legitimately owed or erroneous payments to individuals and suppliers. However, there is the matter of striking the right balance. These agreements will help you consider the fairest way to meet financial obligations, while being mindful of social responsibilities.

  • Debt Resolution Services

    This range of services enables you to consider various options around recovery including analytics, collections, litigation and enforcement.
