Procurement advice

“The most-forgotten competitive factor”.

Supply chain offers more room for improvement than people give it credit for.

Many companies lock a valuable chunk of capital into early purchases of raw materials and pile up inventories to a point where it gets difficult to meet cash flow objectives and to finance short-term needs.

Hiring The Seven Wise Men can be the first step to freeing up much of that money. We assist our clients to reach the right balance of cost, quality and time.

Our team evaluates value-added initiatives that could result from using advanced materials, equipment or machinery, pre-fabricated or modular alternatives, incentives or innovation. The Seven Wise Men’s involvement will reduce a company’s short-term financing needs, which may render your business case a more attractive proposition to outside backers.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right the first time.

When we work on a procurement strategy, these are the top priorities on our minds:

  • How integrated is the supply chain? Are there any programs to reduce the costs of purchases and lead times and to improve the quality of purchased materials?

  • Does the company make the most of economies of scale and scope?

  • Did you plan market demand carefully to produce goods and services in large volumes?

  • Do you hold large stocks of obsolete inventories that take up precious space?

YOUR BENEFITS.

- Stronger position when negotiating with suppliers.

- Use advanced strategies and tactics to maximize efficiencies.

- Eliminate the number of defects and reworks.

- Achieve economies of scale and scope.
