We provide:

  • Deep analytics for supply chain cost improvement
  • Human coordination process analysis to translate the opportunity into measurable ROI

We have found that the best, simplest and fastest place to start is IT.  Why?

Because:

  1. IT is usually the biggest spender on shared services
  2. Great CIOs are committed to Spend Transparency
    • Even with a commitment to Spend Transparency, transparency to actionable spend reports is difficult for IT teams, because financials are presented from either an accounting, allocation, or procurement perspective.  Reports are usually delivered by finance in a performance to budget perspective. This work really moves A CIO’s commitment to Spend Transparency forward
  3. Procurement is very data driven, so leading CIO’s and Heads of Procurement already have a good partnership. If not we can help you establish one.

That does not mean you can’t start elsewhere. Either way, you need a partnership with IT.

Following analysis, we deliver a roadmap of projected savings, with measurable savings from the first project within in 4-6 weeks. Each project amplifies the long-term sustainable value of the previous project.

Your people implement the work and by the third project can do the implementation themselves.

We continue to be available for ongoing design, calibration and checkups.
