“ At Bloom our open approach to procurement is unique. We’re free to think differently to solve challenges, offering choice, value and compliance ”
We’ve built a community of suppliers with the right capabilities, capacity and experience to meet your professional services requirements. They offer the latest thinking on managing complex challenges, across 19 categories and almost 240 sub-categories. You have total flexibility to add new suppliers to meet your varied and changing needs – simply give us a call to discuss how we can help you.
You can manage your projects offline, with our account management teams, or with more control and transparency through our cloud-based system, Pro-vide.
Pro-vide is at the heart of our collaborative approach and gives our community of buyers and suppliers one common place to manage projects, leading to better connections and better outcomes. It’s also a buyer’s hub to see what’s been delivered elsewhere, offering the chance to replicate previous successes.
You set your own service levels and decide how hands-on you want us to be. Through regular project updates and reports, you can be sure milestones are hit and quality is assured.
At Bloom, we take care of everything an effective project needs. We manage the entire process from beginning to end, including all related paperwork, invoicing and prompt payments between everyone involved.
For this efficient service, our suppliers pay us a 5% fee on the successful delivery of a project. It’s simple, efficient and transparent. It gives large and small consultancy suppliers equal access to significant public sector opportunities without the need for complex tender responses, further opening up procurement.
If you’re a buyer or a supplier, talk to us today about how we can work together and keep opening up procurement.
The pilot in 2014 showed that the NEPRO solution could assist the Council to achieve our aims of supporting local business while freeing up valuable time for us to concentrate on high value strategic projects.
Working with Bloom to access the NEPRO solution has ensured we realise all the expected benefits from a neutral vendor approach in procuring and managing specialist professional services. They are a true partner and are continually looking to improve the way we work and ultimately the services provided by the suppliers.
Bloom was essential in the recent hiring of a consultant for a governance project within oneSource. Through the NEPRO solution, I was able to hire a consultant within 2 weeks of posting my project requirements. I was provided with proposals from a range of experienced and relevant suppliers and received valued support from Bloom throughout the process.
Working with Bloom means we get access to the best choice of small and large suppliers, especially supporting local Cornish Small and Medium Enterprises suppliers. Working with a dynamic and competitive supply chain gives us flexibility, greater supplier choice and access to the latest thinking. Overall that delivers better value for money for the tax payer.
I chose to work with Bloom as I liked the idea of outcome-based projects. It’s so much more efficient, as it’s a compliant process without the need to go through the OJEU process as it’s still competitive. Bloom has many suppliers already available but we can add suppliers whenever we want. Having someone who can help by providing a second opinion; a neutral point of view has been valuable to us.
Through Bloom we were able to engage with Cardiff Council efficiently and help them access social care services they urgently needed in a compliant way.
Due to their robust and wide-reaching supply chain, Bloom is able to identify and access even the most niche suppliers. Bloom was able to provide a speedy and robust solution that would not have occurred to us.
