Your supply chain and your relationships with your suppliers are underpinned by the contracts you have with your suppliers. It is difficult to optimise the efficiency and resilience of your supply chains if you do not actively manage your contracts with suppliers and the associated commercial risks. You can draw on our specialist contract management team to ensure your contracts support your overall strategy.
Your contracts could be costing you as much as 10% of your revenue? The International Association for Contract & Commercial Management (IACCM) has found that contract and commercial management weaknesses cost companies the equivalent of 9% of annual revenue.
Contract and Commercial Risk Services
Getting the right contracts in place on both the buy and sell side will give you a competitive advantage. You will also need a robust, commercially focused governance framework to manage these contracts throughout their lifecycle. We combine our deep understanding of commercial contracts and a data-driven approach to unlock value for you. Our insights and practical ideas will help you drive better commercial outcomes.
Whether your supplier management is as straight forward as 'expediting' or whether you have regular, formal meetings to review ongoing delivery, we can help you create a supplier review framework. The framework will assist you in creating healthy supplier relationships that means both you and your suppliers are driving joint improvements and innovations.
