Kinks in the supply chain can quickly undermine a company’s operations, which depend on timely and price-sensitive delivery of materials and goods.

Meanwhile, procurement and sourcing make up a huge piece of a company’s cost structure—typically anywhere between 40% and 80%. Doing this work well is vital. Effective management and efficiency in this space translate directly to profit improvements, while strong purchasing capabilities are a vital contributor to both shareholder value and competitive differentiation. 

We help companies achieve a competitive edge by launching aggressive programs to streamline supply chains from product development and management, designing global supply chains (from manufacturing to delivery), improving manufacturing efficiency, and speeding up procurement savings. These transformations are enabled by new technology, including AI tools and platforms, and underwritten with deep knowledge of how the pieces come together.
