A leading healthcare service provider wanted to identify its indirect spending on manufacturing activities across various locations in the EMEA region.
The client wanted to conduct a comprehensive spend assessment to leverage its combined purchasing power across categories and drive cost savings while realigning the supply chain organization structure for indirect categories.
We obtained procurement and spend data for the previous four quarters from the client’s accounts payable system. Spend analysis, cost optimization assessment, and procurement process analysis were carried out across the company’s multiple divisions/plants.
Through the cost optimization framework, the client was able to select the best possible options for supplier selection and effective spend mix. We also developed a centralized sourcing platform that helped the client in process improvement and save costs on indirect categories.
