"It’s great working with Odesma as they focus on driving effective change for their clients rather than just running a process. Results are judged on the outcomes for clients which is what effective procurement is all about."

Nick Jones, Odesma Interim

"Drax were looking for an organisation to support the development of a Procurement strategy. This review included assessing our people, systems and processes. They deployed a small senior team who integrated with the Procurement team seamlessly with their down to earth and practical way of working. They worked alongside the team seamlessly enabling them to identify areas of improvement and recommend a solid and achievable strategy. In addition to this they completed a review of our spend identifying and classifying areas of opportunities. I would work with Odesma again without hesitation."

Mike Patrick, Commercial Projects Director, Drax

"Odesma provided a small but senior team of experts to design and deliver the transition project for us on a global scale. Moving local procurement organisations in more than 25 countries towards a global acting team was the major challenge for us. Their expertise in all levels of procurement transformation was invaluable to the newly formed global procurement organisation and they went the extra mile in ensuring that all deliverables on the project were completed on time and within budget. They mobilised quickly and integrated into the existing Schenker team immediately and were great to work with."

Christoph S. Herzog, Senior Vice President, Global Procurement, DB Schenker
