Cost Reduction Tracking and Reporting

A fundamental challenge and frustration for procurement leaders, as well as their internal clients, is the credibility of reported savings. What's more, it can be difficult to create useful summaries of the realized savings that are relevant to top management.

Greybeard Advisors, in conjunction with one of its business partners, offers a cost reduction tracking and reporting system that meets these needs, available at a fraction of the cost of in-house development. This system also facilitates effective project management of sourcing projects, and helps to drive negotiated savings to the bottom line.
