Benefits of Medius Sourcing and Contract Management

  • Onboarding time reduced from weeks to hours/improved supplier relationships
  • Automated a paper-based storage system and developed contract compliance reporting
  • Reduced risk and inefficiency across multiple business entities

Who is Mitchells & Butlers?

Mitchells & Butlers provides a wide selection of dining and drinking experiences in 1,700 locations and has over 3,000 active compliant suppliers across its food, drink and indirect categories.

What was the challenge?

Paper-based sourcing, contract management, and onboarding processes were labor intensive and lengthy. With information stored in different locations, there was no central view of the supply base, and which suppliers met compliance standards.

How did we help?

Onboarding has been reduced from weeks to just hours. A master supplier database provides better control and visibility, saving time, and reducing risk and inefficiency.

"Our supplier on-boarding overheads have been significantly reduced with Medius and we now have complete visibility of those approved suppliers across the business."
