Master external costs to ensure long term competitiveness

Procurement plays a critical role in profitability, resilience, and competitiveness. With extensive line management and consulting experience we have developed a pragmatic and effective approach to deliver significant improvements. We understand both what is needed and how to implement initiatives that deliver high-impact bottom-line results.

Impact Examples


Direct material cost reduction

We supported a tier 1 supplier to the automotive industry perform a full supplier negotiation program covering 240+ direct material suppliers and 1.6 bSEK in spend, including preparations, negotiations and implementation.


Freight cost reduction

We helped a European e-commerce company optimize outbound freight, incl. supplier evaluations, route and SLA changes, as well as full RFQ process, resulting in annual savings of ~18 MSEK and improved average lead time by ~15%


Indirect cost reduction

We supported a Nordic niche bank to realize significant savings across multiple indirect spend categories including  IT consultants, software, facilities and professional services. Engagement included both diagnostics and hands-on implementation of identified opportunities.

How we support clients

Spend reduction

We work actively with our clients to analyze pre-requisites for cost reductions across both direct and indirect categories and apply a wide range of levers, going beyond traditional buying techniques, to deliver on identified opportunities.

Organisational upskilling

We combine training and workshops together with coaching and implementation support to turn theory into practice, improving bottom-line results while also equipping the organization with the skill-set to sustain savings over time.
