Cost optimisation is the process of continuously analysing your spend against the products and services that you procure, to reduce costs whilst maintaining value for money. Our cost optimisation consultancy ensures you not only save costs, but you also achieve business efficiencies, improved working practices, better engaged suppliers and innovation in the way services are delivered.
We often see organisations making buying decisions quickly, sometimes at the point of necessity. Supplier contract terms that are written by their legal teams are accepted but not fully understood or managed due to lack of staff capacity or experience in managing complex supplier relationships.
Add to this limited visibility of data – both in terms of your own spend and wider market data for benchmarking purposes – and you can see how it can be tricky for internal teams to be certain that they are getting value for money.
We understand how to pragmatically optimise costs, without compromising on value or service levels and can support you through our cost optimisation consultancy solution.
Mick spent 20+ years working for EDS and HP in the IT and BPO outsourcing industry, solutioning and managing complex Pan-European delivery models. This background has created a real passion for service excellence and delivering solutions that deliver true value.
In tough economic times, controlling costs is not just a ‘nice to have’, it is an essential part of your organisation’s strategy. Any successful organisation should have an optimised cost structure that is constantly reviewed and challenged, but very few achieve this consistently due to the relentless demands of day-to-day operations.
Often, raising questions with senior stakeholders in your organisation or existing supplier network can be challenging. This is where working with an external consultancy, like us, can really help. We can support you with cost optimisation by asking the right questions and focus on your finances, people, processes, systems, suppliers and spend to identify where you can deliver the most value.
When it comes to keeping your costs under control, there is no one-size-fits-all answer that will work for every organisation. The industry sector, size of the organisation and its own particular supply chain needs will all combine to determine what is appropriate.
As part of our procurement cost optimisation solution, we provide a structured and focused assessment of what is possible for your organisation, ensuring that fair, balanced and transparent deals are secured and, in turn, create long-term value and sustainable benefits.
