EXPENSE REDUCTION PROGRAMS

Secure cost savings that stick AND achieve long term company objectives

Responsible expense management is never far from an executive’s mind – especially when the cash generated from reductions can be invested in growing competitive advantage or avoiding cutbacks. 

Whether your company is in growth mode, protecting resources on hand or adapting to a ‘new normal,’ procurement must deliver expense reductions without losing sight of the big picture. Although we need to be frugal in the short term, savings that don’t preserve long term value and achieve specific stakeholder requirements can ultimately lead to higher costs, damaged relationships, and low levels of contract and policy compliance.

We offer three expense reduction program options. You can take a programmatic approach to reducing costs across categories, focus on a single area of spend, or leverage our pre-negotiated supplier contracts for instant reductions. 

With fixed fee, gainshare, and hybrid commercial models, we ensure our efforts are aligned with the outcomes your business needs.

We’re Proud of our Clients

Head of IT SourcingCapital Equipment Company

Art of Procurement impressed me from our first conversation. They brought qualified people to the team with deep knowledge of the market space and the appropriate technical expertise. Managing a project of our size, geographic distribution and complexity, and tight timeline was not an easy undertaking but their project management and business partnering approach had the entire team marching to the same beat.

One of the things I really appreciate about working with Art of Procurement is their flexibility. We’ve had many, many changes to scope but the AOP team is really committed to successful outcomes and they understand that sometimes things can be a bit dynamic.

Head of Indirect ProcurementLeading Technology Consumables Firm

Philip Ideson is not like a typical procurement consultant that focuses on process, or technology alone. He puts people, and relationships, first. His approach is to demonstrate how procurement can help stakeholders achieve their business objectives. Seeking and building alignment really helped my stakeholders feel like, in procurement, they had a business partner.
