Cost Reduction

Reducing costs is a key deliverable for any procurement professional. Often there is much to do and not enough time, with targets for the year- or period-end looming. We can help in a number of ways…

Category Outsourcing

We broker your spend in the market, adopting appropriate Category Management processes and price and cost analytical tools, negotiating with all tenderers to present you with recommended sourcing options.

Interim support

We provide category experts on-/off-site (to suit your needs) to deploy your methodologies, complemented, if required, by our Category Management toolkit, in order to go through the tender cycle and make recommendations. At your request, they can be badged up as a member of your team.

Transformation programmes

Cost reduction activity can be incorporated into a far broader change programme, in which the achievement of cost reductions across multiple categories forms part of the front-end scoping, Opportunity Analysis and monthly reporting.

We have helped our clients across public and private sectors to save millions in all types of expenditure. Our business model can flex to your needs, whether you are working on a single category worth thousands or multiple categories amounting to millions. Can we guide your business through a transformation?

Quick Wins

Sometimes companies need to reduce costs now, not next year but in the next quarter.

We realise that every company has it’s own sensitivities and and ensure we understand the particular needs of your business – analysing data and getting underneath the contracts already in place across the supply chain. Often, we can make recommendations as to where improvements can be made often without changing suppliers.

Our expertise in change and stakeholder management ensures that we don’t just identify opportunities, but actually follow them through to realisation. We can also help devise strategies that create a run rate of achieving tactical savings without compromising longer-term strategic sourcing initiatives.
