Our consulting services include:
Benchmark Assessment and Performance Improvement

Our experts provide detailed analysis and recommendations for improvement and we can then work side-by-side with you to implement plans to address the most important opportunities
Indirect Procurement Spend Analysis and Optimization
- We will work with your indirect procurement organization and internal stakeholders to identify and catalog current spend by business unit, supplier, category and commodity. From this analysis, we will provide a roadmap for optimizing your supplier base and spend.
Stakeholder / Supplier Satisfaction Assessments
- Working with your indirect procurement organization, internal stakeholders and key suppliers, we will help you develop effective feedback mechanisms to solicit, evaluate and effectively respond to input received. This includes recommendations on how best to optimize your interfaces with these groups.
Sourcing Strategy and Support
