Supplement budget reduction strategies with smart, sustainable supplier savings

Optimizing costs has never been more critical and radical cuts in supplier expenditure can be made quite quickly. As we plan recovery, many businesses will still have over-inflated costs and legacy supplier agreements which are neither operationally fit for purpose nor reflect the new commercial or operational norms. However, a haphazard approach will impact operations and the ability to ramp up and reboot at pace.

Proxima’s Rapid Cost Down services brings external insights and acceleration to supplier cost-cutting programs. By combining market knowledge with an understanding of current and future business needs, we can help organizations ‘cut with confidence’. Evidencing where cuts are able to be made and where reduction does or does not mean radical changes in supplier selection, performance, service levels or quality. This approach gives you:

  • An expert cost-cutting team
  • The ability to assess and cut with confidence
  • Fast and sustainable budget impacting savings
  • Reassurance that the risks are minimized and managed
