Proxima Launches Industry First On-demand Procurement Service

LONDON and CHICAGO, December 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Proxima - - a leading international procurement services provider, today announces the launch of a new, industry first On-Demand Procurement service.

Powered by Catalytics®, Proxima's On-Demand procurement service provides businesses a ready-made team with access to market leading category expertise and IP, technology, best-practice templates and tools - all supported by a global delivery infrastructure.

The new On-Demand service aims to provide businesses with everything they need out-of the-box, offering complete visibility across the pipeline of activity.

"Our aim was to create a true 'as a service' product that allows our clients to determine how much or little of the service they need, and decide when and where the service should be delivered" said Jonathan Cooper-Bagnall, EVP & Commercial Director of Proxima.

"Procurement-as-a-Service (PaaS) was a buzz word thrown around a lot in 2015, however, scratching under the surface in most cases reveals that many firms are simply using PaaS as a wrapper for their technology platforms - and not delivering a true end-to-end service back to the market."

Driven by the increasing need to protect against the unpredictability of global supply markets, Proxima's On-Demand procurement service provides businesses with a fully flexible, Pay As You Go (PAYG) event based procurement service that scales according to demand.
