Cost Containment, Savings Analysis


Preliminary savings analysis – We and our partners will conduct a confidential, no-cost analysis of your purchases to quickly estimate the cost savings opportunity that is available for you. We calculate our savings analysis by benchmarking your expenses with proprietary purchasing data in our extensive Knowledge Base. Clients use the preliminary analysis to decide whether to engage us or not.

Client engagement - We and our partners work with our clients to confirm which expense areas to review, identify any supplier sensitivities and constraints, and establish a commencement date and Project Timeline. Also, at this point the client has the option to start utilizing our pre-certified national suppliers, who offer group purchasing pricing, volume incentives and services that many companies cannot access on their own.

Expense history analysis - We and our partners compile and format historical expense data into a customized report. This provides you a categorized report of internal purchasing activities and also enables us to prioritize our savings action plan.

Request for Proposal (RFP) management - We and our partners work closely with your purchasing department to manage the RFP process for the expense categories in the scope of our engagement. Our RFP process is customized to identify your actual purchasing patterns, service needs and reporting requirements. We encourage our clients to include non-incumbent suppliers in the bidding process.

Group purchasing - We and our partners give you an immediate opportunity to realize the benefits of our group purchasing contracts. These contracts are with leading national suppliers that offer deep discounts and economic incentives based on vast purchasing power.

Final presentation - We and our partners document the total cost savings and efficiency improvements and present a detailed report to your management team.
Implementation - We and our partners arrange and facilitate supplier meetings with your key employees, establish key performance measures for the suppliers and implement the reduced pricing schedules for your purchased supplies and services.

Vendor management - We and our partners schedule business review meetings with your team on regular intervals to make sure you are realizing the full cost savings and taking advantage of best practices enabled by the vendors.
