Margin Enhancement

Margin Enhancement and Cost ReductionEvery business, with no exception, should carefully watch its margins and monitor costs. Constantly.

 

Unfortunately it’s not as easy as pulling a few numbers together and reporting on the areas of concern. The main and most difficult thing is to uncover the reasons behind poor margins, identify the main cost drivers and find effective ways to improve the balance sheet.

 

We totally don’t mean here redundancies, cutting corners or forcing suppliers to agree to unreasonable price reductions or extended payment terms that will disrupt their cash flow and may lead to their demise.

 

We have developed a very different approach to the margin improvement. Some of the ways to achieve higher profits and reduce costs our team can assist you with:

 

  • Elimination of not adding value elements within any process – value chain analysis
  • Effective cost increase management
  • Product re-engineering
  • Supply base optimisation
  • Joint growth and efficiency plans with strategic vendors
  • Commercial terms audit
  • Supplier funding
  • Selling price architecture
  • Route to market and supply chain optimisation
  • Shrinkage and returns analysis
  • Packaging improvement and reduction
  • Goods not for resale

 

We focus on well-researched long-term solutions instead of quick-fixes.
