We provide solutions covering the entire spectrum of Procurement and Cost efficency improvement.
The ACI program is designed to provide both an organisational health check on current Procurement performance and a road map to providing a path to sustained success.
We can incorporate many ingredients, starting with the Rapid Procurement Assessment (RPA). Following the RPA, specific actions are identified to realise benefits, whilst ensuring the client is in full control, receiving impartial, expert advice.
The first step to success is understanding what you have and how effective your company is. Are you satisfied with your cost performance?, are you confident that you are buying as effectively as possible?
Our process will give you an independant insight to all key areas of your current Procurement, with a feedback report on immediate areas of improvement with further opportunities for cost efficiency. A simple and cost effective way to assess current arrangements.
Following the Rapid Procurement Assessment, this becomes the basis for developing a client cost improvement plan.
Whether the focus be on paymanet term standardisation, unit cost improvement, cash incentive generation, to name but a few, a tailored plan will be created to map out a pragmatic and realistic way forward. With extensive knowledge ACI is suitably experienced and networked in a wide range of spend categories.
Cash flow is the lifeblood of any company so there are a number of levers that can be applied to improve cash performance in both a responsible and sustainable way.
