About Lead Evolve
Lead Evolve's aim is to revolutionise the interaction between the Buyer, the Main Contractor and the Supply Chain in the Construction Sector
By Introducing a series of intuitive and innovative portals covering Tender Search, Tender Management, Supplier Accreditation and Supply Chain Management, Lead Evolve looks to address a fragmented Construction Industry creating an easier tender management process, a visible supply chain on a per project basis and make opportunities more accessible than they have ever been to SME's. In a report prepared by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills the following issues were identified that Lead Evolve looks to address with it's suite of portals.
The construction industry has a large supply chain, almost all of which is sourced within the UK. The sector is characterised by high levels of fragmentation. Analysis carried out has shown that for a ‘typical’ large building project – that is, in the £20 - £25 million range - the main contractor may be directly managing around 70 sub-contracts of which a large proportion are small – £50,000 or less. The emerging findings from the same study identified a number of crucial factors which determine successful delivery of a construction project. These include: early contractor engagement and continuing involvement of the supply chain in design development; strong relations and collaboration with suppliers. The research also identified opportunities for performance enhancement associated with procurement of a large number of small transactions; coordination of multiple trades – particularly at the later stages of project delivery and further improvements in collaboration, design and site management.
Lead Evolves suite of portals provide solutions to each of these elements by providing a more accessible way of procuring and tendering for works with supply chain visibility and accreditations status from the top to the bottom of the supply chain.
