Are You Focusing on What Matters Most?

Price and standardization are important up to a point, but if you aren’t focusing your supply chain expense management efforts on utilization management — where it matters most —  you are losing the opportunity to save 7% to 15% on your total spend…period!

Slippery Slope

We often talk about utilization management in these terms: If not now, when? We can make this statement because utilization management is the only savings area left in your vineyard. Not only has your low-hanging fruit been picked and standardization substantially achieved, but now your pricing is slowly disappearing. This is no longer conjecture, it is a cold hard fact.

Insidious Effect

Why this matters is if you have obtained the best price and then standardized on a commodity, but  your utilization of this same category of purchase is off the charts you are losing all of the savings that you have gained to date.
