Private Equity Operating Partners Guide to Procurement

Leveraging Procurement for EBITDA Improvement.

Private equity operating partners are more prevalent today and must have vast array of experience in all functional areas. But, we find that they don’t always have a mastery over niche areas such as procurement. Controlling procurement costs within your portfolio companies is harder than it seems, and few mid-market portfolio companies do it well across all expenditures.

Yet fully optimized, procurement spend will have a uniquely compelling and near-term impact on EBITDA. At a minimum, ask yourself if you believe your portfolio companies’ procurement functions are fully optimized. If not, what is the size of the opportunity? If it is meaningful, how do you capture it?

Boutique or Large Firm?7 Factors to Consider When Hiring a Consulting Firm

Boutique or Large Firm?

You are considering hiring a consulting firm and you have options.  You can go with one of the big brands or a smaller, specialized firm.  There are some obvious differences, but there are a few nuances you should consider that might not be immediately evident.  In the past, going with a big brand has always been assumed to be the safe play.  However, as the largest consulting firms have gotten much larger, dynamics have shifted and the big brands may be more recognized but are not necessarily the safest or most likely to produce the best results.

Mastering the Energy Cost Equation: An Intro to Energy Management

Energy Cost = Price x Quantity. The implication of this expression is clear; energy cost is proportional to both price and quantity. Why then do companies often take a one-sided approach to energy management? By focusing solely on either reducing their unit costs or their consumption, companies miss out on significant energy savings. Worse yet, trying to reduce both price and quantity without understanding their interdependencies can result in cannibalized savings and missed ROI targets.  In this brief, we will examine cost management strategies and the pitfalls to avoid when implementing a comprehensive approach to energy management.

Why Your Procurement Data is Bad

FACE IT: YOUR DATA IS BAD.

In a world where Spend Visibility is a basic requirement for even average procurement performance, why is procurement data so terrible? After spending millions of dollars on technology, from ERP systems to Procure-to-Pay (“P2P”) platforms, why do many procurement organizations struggle to achieve Spend Visibility to identify savings opportunities? And why, after gaining a degree of clarity through painful, heavily manual, one-off data cleansing work, are they forced to launch freshly sourced contracts “into the ether” and hope they have strong compliance?

Sourcing Accomplished…Now What?How to Sustain Your Sourcing Savings

Stop Your Savings Leakage.

Procurement teams invest countless hours into strategic sourcing events with the hopes that they will deliver significant savings to their company’s bottom line. However, research suggests that less than half of companies actively manage categories after sourcing events.

Our experience has shown that, on average, companies lose 40% of their savings to maverick spending and another 15% due to vendor contract noncompliance. This means that without active category management, companies are losing up to 50% or more of their savings.

Strategic Sourcing vs. Tactical, Traditional Purchasing

In other cases, true sourcing skills and expertise do not exist within a company.

Insight Sourcing Group has performed thousands of sourcing projects for our clients. In this guide, we will explore the differences between strategic sourcing and traditional, tactical purchasing; examples of actual results; and how to get started with strategic sourcing.
