Systematic and detailed spend management is critical for small purchasing teams. We assist in gathering your spend data, organizing it systematically and identifying opportunities to leverage the existing spend for further cost reduction – without the need of switching existing suppliers.
Risk management including financial stability & performance is a determining factor to a long term supplier relationship. PIONNIER offers a framework to access the manufacturer’s financial performance & any indications of instability or bankruptcy and benchmark them against industry standards. We also provide solutions to identify alternate liquidity sources and reduce working capital requirements.
We offer simple excel based should-cost models for faster cost estimation and a guiding tool against the supplier’s price increases. Should cost model includes cost plus pricing and is developed using either broad industry averages, information from subject matter experts or specific supplier data.
