Vision, integration, performance

No function is better placed to capitalise quickly on economies of scale following a merger or acquisition than procurement; after all, procured goods and services make up 60% or more of an organisation’s cost base.

But delivering significant savings and implementing best practice procurement processes in a short period of time takes more than straightforward category management. It takes good analytical skills, robust programme and stakeholder management – and a calm head.

Founded by Angus Craig, CHC is the only consultancy that specialises in post-acquisition procurement, and we do it with honesty, flexibility and common sense. We offer:

Vision: a clear way forward

  • Detailed planning and transition management to minimise disruption to your business, its services and its supply chain – and to take everyone on the journey at the same time
  • The identification of opportunities for savings and improvements in policies, procedures and processes
  • A dedicated professional to facilitate the planning, transition and optimisation phase; someone that can hit the ground running and start delivering straight away

Integration: post-acquisition procurement expertise

  • Excellent stakeholder management skills to understand competing agendas and deliver meaningful results
  • Extensive experience of managing post-acquisition activity in global blue chip organizations
  • Support with negotiations to ensure that savings are delivered

Performance: policy, process, saving

  • Short- and long-term cost reduction through the delivery of ‘quick wins’ and skilled IT and telecoms category management
  • Purchase to pay (P2P) management to ensure that appropriate controls are in place
  • A strong track record in programme and project management

The result of all our skills and experience? Typical savings of 10-25% per category.
