RFU Signs up With Compleat and Combines its Existing Compleat Purchase to Pay Software to Deliver Spend Control
LONDON, March 11, 2011 - Compleat Software Limited www.compleatsoftware.com
today announces that it has signed up The Rugby Football Union to the
Compleat Buyers Group (www.compleatsoftware.com/Buyers-Group) (CBG).
Combined with the Compleat Purchase to Pay (
www.compleatsoftware.com/Purchase-to-Pay) (P2P) software the RFU has
already procured, it is expected that the Spend Control (
) contract will provide up to GBP300,000 worth of savings on discretionary
purchases in the first year of membership and those savings will be enjoyed
year after year.
The CBG will enable the RFU to reduce the cost of
discretionary spend by leveraging the entire CBG's collective spending power
to achieve better prices. Where it differs from other buying groups is that
it works with Compleat's P2P software to ensure nominated suppliers, goods,
services and prices are used every time by the managers and buyers at the
John Moulson, Head of Finance at the Rugby Football Union
comments, "Compleat Buyers Group will pay for itself through the savings made
on stationery alone and anything else is a bonus. The Compleat Detailed
Review has identified potential savings of GBP100,000 which we will achieve
quickly, plus potentially a further GBP200,000 savings in the coming year.
Choosing to engage with Compleat Spend Control was a very simple decision!"
David Hawthorn, Chief Procurement Officer of CBG, comments
"The RFU have lots of managers who are very good at getting good value in
their own specialised areas such as rugby equipment, but there is no-one who
looks at purchasing as a function, and certainly no-one looking into the
detail of what the RFU spend on everyday items such as cleaning products and
stationery on behalf of the entire organisation."
As well as the annual membership fee, The RFU is taking 50
days of consultancy as part of the Active Cost Management package, with a
consultant on site one day a week. Hawthorn continues, "Our CBG professional
buyers will work alongside the RFU's staff and management to help them
achieve better prices across the board, and I see this as a real opportunity
to contribute to the transformation of procurement at the RFU."
Neil Robertson, CEO Compleat Software, adds "As one of
Compleat Software's first customers, I am delighted that The RFU is the first
customer to sign up to the Compleat Buyers Group. We are very confident that
the savings generated through CBG for the RFU are typical for a very large
number of businesses, and will deliver a real and quantifiable cash ROI to
businesses in as little as four months. Once in place, these savings will be
repeated every year, making Compleat Spend Control a very compelling
Robertson concludes, "Compleat Purchase to Pay automation

dedicated procurement function. By helping to save the pennies across common
overhead spend, the pounds look after themselves and deliver an outstanding
