Reduce Retail Operating Costs with Procurement Strategies

The current climate

Retailers already understand that expert buyers pay dividends; it’s why they already use them.

Fashion buyers for department stores and food and wine buyers for supermarkets are hired because they add value to the requirements, evaluation and supplier selection parts of the process.

At ERA UK, we do that job across all areas of your non-core spending; whether it’s negotiating with Payments providers to reduce your transaction costs, working with our IT & Communications teams to ramp up your e-commerce experience or with our Logistics & Distribution teams to ensure that the goods arrive on time. You can be sure our experts will be determined to generate the best value on your behalf.
