What is the Procurement professional’s greatest, most valuable asset?

I’ll tell you: Time. The Procurement professional’s greatest asset is their time.

The evolution of the Procurement profession over the last 5 years has seen the department of the Chief Procurement Office take on more business critical and strategic responsibilities more than ever before.

With the focus on delivering an ESG mandate the profession has even less time to:

👀 Find innovation.

⚖️ Extract value.

🤝 Build partnerships.

😁 Maintain relationships.

📝 Run tenders and save on budget.

♻️ And now, Procurement must also find Sustainable, Diverse suppliers and this has added a layer of complexity that costs time.

This is why I built Kaleida the only fully-inclusive B2B marketplace in EMEA for Procurement focused on delivering inclusive Social Value!

You see, Procurement have 3 choices:

1️⃣ Support 1 diverse community although there a 6 recognised diverse identities who experience marginalisation (more being debated like Age (over 55 y/o founders))

2️⃣ Support all diverse communities through individual advocacy groups and NGO organisations. This takes 4-6 weeks to run an inclusive tender.

Or now,

3️⃣ Leverage the power of Kaleida and its fully inclusive workflows which help Buyers Find, Identify, Assess, and then Invite Diverse Suppliers to tender inside 10 seconds.

We built Kaleida to be inclusive, not exclusive.

Data is structured, normalised, and searchable making adoption easy for users, whilst delivering on an inclusive Procurement strategy.

If you value ‘time’ as a commodity and are planning on launching a supplier diversity programme, or perhaps you want to extend and mature an existing programme, I would welcome the opportunity to showcase the power and efficiency of what Social Value could mean for your business.
