The Problem

  • The organisation wanted an outsourced procurement service to run their indirect materials organisation and help deliver an improvement to EBITDA of €5m per annum.
  • The objective was to improve enterprise value and return cash to fuel growth within the business.

The Solution

  • The 4C team used its 4C Insight-as-a-Service procurement diagnostic and reporting suite to conduct a systematic review with key stakeholders.
  • We identified a portfolio of projects to deliver benefits, including non-EBITDA impacting benefits.
  • It was critical to deliver a complete business service rather than focusing only on projects with the largest savings and our tools provided a single source of data, providing visibility required to build stakeholder engagement and fuel future progress.

The Impact

  • A total of €24m in benefits was delivered from 500+ projects, improvements to reliability, supplier innovation, supplier quality and supplier agility were also delivered.
  • 4C’s 4Tracker tool enabled the team to report on project progress and evidence savings delivery to stakeholders.
