Delivering savings on external spend for 25 years

We’ll identify, deliver and manage savings from your external spend. We do this by developing an understanding of your business, by applying our expertise and then doing the hard work to realise the benefits. We’re not in the business of report writing, but working with our clients for the long-term to deliver savings.

A three step process delivers savings that last


If there are savings to be had, we’ll work with you to unearth them.

The first thing we do is to identify the opportunities to deliver savings. We can expedite your current priorities, unearth savings through careful analysis of spend or even deliver quick wins through our Certain Six spend reduction projects.


Using every technique from tendering to auctions, we’ll deliver real, measurable savings.

We know results are the only thing that matter – which is why our savings delivery projects are delivered on a no-win, no-fee basis. Using our tried and trusted techniques, systems and people, we’ll deliver and measure the savings, while keeping you fully informed and in control.


Because savings are so hard won, we manage the resulting contracts to ensure value is maintained.

With up to 50% of procurement savings dissipating after the initial award, effective management of contracts is critical. We set up every contract to allow effective management and control, then actively manage them to deliver increasing value and performance.


We have a range of services to help you manage and reduce external expenditure:

  • Spend analytics
  • Opportunity assessment
  • Quick wins (the Certain Six)
  • Category strategies
  • Procurement planning
  • Strategic sourcing
  • Procurement Management
  • Direct negotiations
  • Direct and indirect procurement support
  • Contract reviews
  • Supplier rebates
  • Spend recovery and invoice audit

“They are not the kind of nameless, faceless consultants who make surface level recommendations and then leave before the real work begins.They know their stuff and can make intelligent conceptual leaps – they have more than the obvious in their repertoire. If there are savings to be had and you engage properly as a client, they will tough it out with you and deliver them.”
