support we offer and find out how we do things differently.
Complementary Tech Stack
Effective Supplier Management
We understand that services procurement is a journey. We design iterative solutions that grow over time.
We create services procurement solutions customized to you – no one else. We use all the latest services buying tools and technologies to develop personalized solutions that match your existing processes and priorities while giving you the expertise and capacity to achieve more.
This doesn’t mean we start from scratch. We know the latest best practice, technologies, and tools inside out, and we work with you to co-create a solution that fits your organization.
"Providers who sell a standard one-size-fits-all approach and then tell you to mandate their solutions are leading you down the wrong path. I believe that it has to be an appropriate and fit-for-purpose solution that's customized to your specific needs and goals. There is absolutely no sense in buying an off-the-shelf services procurement solution – it’s destined to fail."
Vice President, Services Procurement, KellyOCG
Helping you to extend your tech capabilities
There are lots of VMS (vendor management systems) providers out there, but the reality is that many tech solutions are too rigid to meet your changing needs. We help you to customize and implement industry-leading tech in agile ways that make it work harder for your business.
What are your challenges associated with OPTIMIZING your services spend management?
- Inadequate technology
- Lack of current spend visibility
- Unclear savings potential
- Anticipated business pushback
- Do not have the right or enough people
Our people are services procurement insiders.
We’re really proud of that.
We understand your world. Our people have worked inside and alongside the biggest and most exciting organizations in the world, and we’ve been delivering innovative services solutions for more than a decade.
Our Global Services Procurement Center of Excellence (COE) ensures that you always have access to the right skills at the right time, while seasoned procurement individuals in our PMO team ensure you have expertise at your fingertips during program rollouts and SOW engagement management.
We don’t do generalists.
By organizing our practice into product development and product management gurus, we drive excellence in every part of services procurement solution innovation and implementation. While our SMEs (subject matter experts) take the lead on program roll out, ensuring that every part of a solution is working effectively from the very start. We also audit all of our programs regularly to ensure best practice is maintained and to drive continuous improvement throughout your services procurement journey. Our team’s deep knowledge and services expertise means you’ll always have an SME in your corner through the lifecycle of a program.
A technology partnership
that’s all about you.
We work with customers to understand their unique needs, looking at your existing approach with an open mind to understand how we can create a complementary technology stack to meet your goals. This approach includes a deeply customized VMS configuration supported by our internal tools and proprietary technologies to deliver a best-in-class tech array to support your entire source-to-pay lifecycle.
We drive technology evolution.
We live and breathe the latest services procurement tools and tech – from AI contract reading to a RFx Smart Sourcing technology – and we’re constantly updating our technology standards and VMS customizations to maintain a best-in-class approach. We also work closely with leading VMS providers, promoting ideas and enhancements, to ensure you get the maximum bang for your technology investment.

We’ve developed a detailed blueprint for services procurement success, and we understand how to build services procurement solutions that accelerate your goals. All of our solutions are scalable and flexible to fit your unique needs.
Turn on full services visibility.
Our proprietary Helix Analytics portal makes the invisible visible – turning on detailed insights into services deployment, performance, and spend that are impossible to extract from most enterprise systems. These insights not only help you to see further, they also support informed decision-making.
To monitor and enforce compliance, it’s crucial you can see your current engagements and suppliers. By shining a light across services spend and performance, we help you to reduce risk and improve security.
See supplier performance.
How do you know if your services suppliers are doing a great job? Detailed insights ensure you always know what great looks like. Our data-driven analytics deliver detailed performance metrics for both suppliers and individual engagements, enabling your organization to identify opportunities to drive better performance.
Analyze team performance.
Our analytics shine a light on external partners while enabling you to see internal performance more clearly. Did a hiring manager choose the right channel? Are SOWs being drafted correctly? Could an engagement have been monitored more closely? By providing detailed metrics and insight, we help you to hold a mirror up to your procurement organization.

Driving correct worker categorization.
We understand that wherever you're doing business in the world, worker classification matters. And poor compliance can undermine good work, putting your business at risk. We turn up visibility to drive correct worker classification and ensure great compliance across the lifecycle of every engagement.
Engaging services on your terms.
Your policies and procedures are there to keep your business safe, but these don’t always translate to every services contract. We help you to shape your contract terms to accurately reflect your rules and regulations – ensuring every services engagement at every spend level is enacted safely and compliantly.
Controlling who can access your business.
Reducing risk is about more than engaging workers correctly and lawfully, it’s about ensuring the right people have access to your systems and property for the right period. We partner with you to provide controls – both physical and intellectual – to protect your assets and mitigate the risks of third-party access.
