We reduce cost and improve supply chain performance, for middle market manufacturing, distribution and service companies. We aggregate then leverage, the spend of all our clients, to develop and implement savings and efficiency programs.
Unlike traditional, passive GPO’s, which leave resource strapped clients to search for and extract value from, pre-negotiated discounted rates with vendors, we have developed an innovative, actively managed approach. We take leverage to the next level: using powerful analytical tools, we track on-going spend, identifying opportunities to make further savings through, for example, standardization, substitution or collaborative vendor programs.
How do we help?
No resources? No problem.
We work as an extension to your team, using our collaborative but not time consuming, processes and tools to get the job done quickly. Our work always results in time saving solutions, giving your team time to focus on critical, value added work. We can also provide you with advanced purchasing software to help capture spend data and improve procurement processes.
No visibility to expenses? No problem.
Using advanced spend analytic technologies, we are able to collect and organize your data even if it is spread across multiple formats, locations and systems, to create a foundation for analysis and sourcing, as well as measurement and verification of results. We also track compliance to programs and provide regular reports, to ensure that you are maximizing the value identified.
