People say the nicest of things
— Financial Controller
Having received glowing feedback on work completed with another client, we engaged Oculus to manage the procurement process of consolidating our company-wide consumables spend. This substantial area of spend for The Range, covers a large array of items which are critical for the ongoing operation of our stores in the UK and Ireland.
The review has since completed and delivered significant cost savings and service improvements whilst also consolidating a number of spend areas.
We were delighted with this result and decided to expand the size and scope of the Oculus engagement to include a total of 7 additional indirect category reviews. This second phase has already delivered some excellent results and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with Oculus, as we conclude this wave of reviews.
— Chief Financial Officer
We are very happy to have worked on this project with Oculus Procurement. In a demonstration of RPC’s commitment to value, commerciality and efficiency, we wanted to work with advisers who would enable us to really evaluate our current procurement processes and are delighted to have done so using Oculus’ innovative approach.
— Chief Administration Officer
Following the acquisition of Carole Nash, we engaged Oculus Procurement to lead a range of cost-saving, sourcing and supply-chain consolidation exercises. As one of the largest insurance brokers, ensuring we have the right supply chain in place is imperative, to ensure we can maintain our competitive advantage and achieve the best outcomes for our customers. The Oculus Procurement engagement was a great success for our business; they worked collaboratively with our teams and led them through a range of complex and challenging projects, whilst also representing a fantastic return on investment. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Another great piece of work completed by our procurement partners – Oculus Procurement. Acquisition of a new managed print fleet whilst also reducing costs by 50%. Well done and thanks to all.

The team at Oculus removed all the hassles of running our tender and delivered a solution that was efficient and easy to utilise, allowing us to focus our time on ensuring the best possible deal was achieved. Matthew and Luke were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend Oculus to anyone looking at procurement activities
Autonet Insurance Group
Lyceum Capital Partners LLP is one of the UK’s leading small-mid cap private equity firms specializing in Technology, Outsourcing and Data Sectors.
Lyceum recently engaged Oculus Procurement for a period of 5 months to undertake a full review of all procurement practices within one of our businesses; the objective was to strengthen and further professionalise the procurement function. This included the development of a new vision and strategy for procurement, the creation of a targeted and categorised savings programme, the establishment of a new procurement structure with clearly defined roles and responsibilities and the creation of a light and pragmatic procurement toolkit based upon Category Management principles.
The Oculus approach from the start was incredibly refreshing and these are very high calibre and experienced procurement professionals who deliver their service with real passion and commitment in a results driven way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Oculus to any business looking for procurement support and indeed Lyceum are now looking at further engaging Oculus in our wider portfolio of investments.
— Head of Facilities Services
We have worked with Oculus Procurement on a number of strategic purchasing initiatives over the last twelve months. We have been impressed with their flexible, pragmatic and structured approach along with their significant commodity expertise. I have absolutely no doubt we will work with them again in the future.
Hogan Lovells International LLP
We worked with Oculus on a strategic procurement initiative which saw the consolidation of our international supply chain back into the United Kingdom. This initiative was truly at the heart of our business and with this in mind we needed a partner that could deliver against a hugely challenging brief.
I cannot recommend the Oculus Procurement service highly enough. We as a senior leadership team found the Oculus team to be highly experienced, driven, but most importantly, they delivered a solution on-time and to plan.
One challenge faced by successful companies as they grow is the need for processes and strategies to keep pace with the increase in throughput. The healthy growth at Simply Solutions increased workload on its service provision which required the Management Team to appoint Oculus Procurement to allow them to focus on the bigger picture.
By engaging Oculus Procurement to conduct a holistic review we were able to develop a coherent corporate strategy across our service portfolio that took advantage of our growing market position. The savings realised and delivered by Oculus Procurement has more than paid for their fees and we have subsequently engaged them on two further projects.
Through their professional and methodical practices we were able to reduce the number of suppliers and develop win-win commercial arrangements with key supplier partners. The quality of Oculus’s team and their flexible approach made it easy for Simply Solutions to work with them, to achieve our short and medium term goals.
