Save Money with Effective Professional Services Procurement

The current climate

ERA UK has been helping professional firms for more than 25 years.

If there is one thing that is guaranteed in this sector, it’s that change is a constant. There is increased client expectation and downward pressure on fees, which is a tricky combination to navigate. These, and the double impact of both property and salary inflation are creating a perfect storm for firms. This has encouraged consolidation – particularly within the legal and accountancy professions, resulting in the emergence of new regional heavyweight firms. Accountancy firms have also entered the legal arena along with focused non-traditional legal firms presenting a challenge to the existing order.

Technology and client expectations are leading the transformation of remote and mobile working and the drive for improved systems is matched only by the need to ensure compliance and security in light of new legislation such as GDPR. Using expert help to ensure that firms are not overpaying unnecessarily on services is the least any responsible commercial partner can do.

Take a look below to see which categories we have helped others in and just a fraction of the people we’ve helped in your sector, as well as some of our latest commentary.
