The Supply Chain team led the initiative to recover 100% of the overcharges, design and implement a transportation performance tracking process, and renegotiate a better rate plan. Based on the total savings generated from this initiative, the client was able to fund a corporate risk management initiative.

Bill s practice investigated the existing processes and modified the software to meet the manufacturer s needs. Bill and his team designed the system functionality to manage bar coding and lot traceability which resulted in inventory reduction, cost reconciliation, and compliance with the manufacturer s key customer requirements. HOW WE ENGAGE WITH CLIENTS Most engagements are fixed-fee with a portion contingent on measurable results, such as cost reductions. We ensure that every member of our team has a stake in our clients business improvements.
