A sampling of our recent work:
Cash Strategy for a Major Communications Company
A major communications company was seeking to clarify its options to improve working capital and reduce their total debt.
We assisted Treasury in aligning the organization behind a supply chain finance strategy, defining solution requirements, and facilitating the vendor selection.
Savings Enablement for a Nationwide Distributor
A nationwide distributor sought to expand savings from early pay discounts without adding to their finance and sourcing teams.
We deployed a team to manage and grow their Early Pay Program, tapping skills in web marketing, call center outreach, payment analytics, pricing and project management.
Cash-flow Management for a Global Manufacturer
A global manufacturer needed a means to smooth-out cash flow given wide fluctuations in their quarterly business.
We helped define an innovative strategy that combined an Early Pay Program with Supply Chain Finance to selectively deploy cash based on quarterly cash-flow needs.
Savings for a Top 10 US
Strategic sourcing in a top 10 US financial services firm was looking for ways to cut costs beyond their normal negotiated pricing.
We benchmarked their payment history and built a business case for a terms optimization strategy that extended net terms and captured new savings via an Early Pay Discount Program.
