Perfect your procurement

Procurement diagnostics
Our structured approach can help you implement a procurement diagnostic in a very short time, typically in two to four weeks. Using our analytical model, we examine your organization's procurement to get an accurate picture of both the baseline and the optimization potential.

Procurement optimization
We offer a variety of options for optimizing your procurement processes. At the strategic level, we typically optimize purchasing based on category projects. At the operational level, we aim to minimize inventory costs and ensure that the payment terms are optimal.



Make the most of your
supply chain operations

Supply chain diagnostics
Our starting point for supply chain diagnostics is analyzing how you can optimize performance by focusing on cost, delivery time, quality, and flexibility. Completing a supply chain diagnostic involving quantitative and qualitative analyses to identify optimization opportunities typically takes eight weeks.

Supply chain optimization
Effective supply chain optimization requires an assessment of the challenges faced in a variety of areas, from ordering the necessary raw materials to final delivery of the finished product. We offer a practical approach, focusing on time, costs, quality, and flexibility.

Optimizing warehousing and distribution
Warehousing and distribution are key functions in a wide range of organizations across industries. But it is especially true in manufacturing and wholesale businesses, where the optimal functioning of logistics for incoming and outgoing goods is crucial. Optimizing warehousing and distribution can reduce costs and ensure that less capital is tied up in stock without sacrificing delivery speed.

Transportation optimization
Transportation is a significant cost item in most businesses, sometimes 10 to 20 percent of the total cost of a product. To optimize your transportation setup, we analyze several factors, including the mode of transport (ship, plane, car, or parcel post), the delivery rate, and whether the transport should be held in-house or outsourced.
