Our Process

All our initiatives are project managed, using a simple, efficient but rigorously thorough process. Although each project is unique and the process is tailor made, most client projects are activated in a three-step approach "Audit-Agree-Activate" process.

1. Audit your business costs. We gather all the data required in the agreed areas (including supplier spends, categories of spends, suppliers details themselves, service standards, contracts, copy invoices, etc) to help us assess your purchasing performance against market best practice. The deliverable here will be a recommendations report with will often be in the format of a cost reduction plan, outlining specific tailor made actions for your business.   

2.  Agree this recommendations report and action plan. Setting clear, deliverable objectives and targets. 

3. Activate this plan to achieve the cost savings and other benefit opportunities identified. Just one of our customer commitments include a regular, relevant but simple update on progress against project targets - the customer stakeholders will always be aware of progress against target, with no surprises. 

Our Perspective

Because we work across many sectors and uncover & resolve many types of procurement challenges, we have a broader perspective. We see the emerging trends in these sectors and bring these insights and benefits to our clients. And all that means the costs in your business can be challenged with more knowledge and confidence.  


In the past 12 months we have delivered an average of 31% cost reductions for our customers. See just some of our customer references on our web site and many more specific references are available upon request.

Our client track record of 'Delivering Clear Results' together with a growing market reputation for consistently achieving results which are on or often ahead of target and with many direct referrals for new clients coming from previous successful work, all this have contributed to these positive outcomes.
