is your Working Capital what it should be?

The Bavelos Group is the global leader in best practice consulting for
Early Pay Programs and Supply Chain Finance 

 Our strategic insight, analytics and supplier services optimize payables-related working capital for gobal clients.

Three critical questions about payables working capital

1. Are you paying your
suppliers too soon?
Bavelos Group - paying too soon?

Every day of DPO yields more
than $25 million cash to an
average F100 company

2. Are you missing out on
early pay discounts?

Every $1 billion of spend can
earn over $3 million in early
pay savings

3. Are you getting the
best returns on cash?

Over 50% of cash for early
payment yields better than a
20% annualized rate of return

Does any of this seems like quesswork? We can help.

The Bavelos Group team has helped hundreds of global clients analyze, plan and implement innovative solutions that address these key questions and optimize cash, income and rate of return.

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
Financial Institution

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.

The Bavelos Group was instrumental in the success of our working capital initiative. I would be hesitant to tackle Supply Chain Finance and Dynamic Discounting without them.”
