Contracts optimisation / Commercial excellence
In times of austerity getting value for money is an ongoing challenge for most organisations. Often the best way to yield savings quickly is to optimise the value of existing supplier contracts (714K, November 2012). Find out how effectively managing these, and minimising waste in your business activities can typically save your organisation between 5% to 15% of its contract spend.
Driving efficiency in public sector estates
More effective use of the £370bn of UK public buildings is crucial to public sector efficiency and reform. Find out how our innovative, practical solutions link property with service design, finance, technology, customer demand, working practices and commercial excellence (762K, November 2012). £1 saved on rent, heating, lighting and maintenance is £1 extra to the front-line.
Getting more from strategic commissioning
Public sector spending cuts and their impact on local authority budgets is one of many challenges faced. Local authorities need a new approach to manage social, economic, political and financial dynamics (951K, November 2012). Our method not only brings innovation and service delivery and cultural change, but also provides an opportunity to redefine your organisation and how you operate around core priorities.
Integrating health and social care
Health and social care organisations are under pressure to make significant financial savings, while services are increasingly under pressure from increased public expectation and the needs of an aging population. Our integrated systems approach can help increase productivity (777K, November 2012), offer savings and service improvements through reduced admissions, and efficiency through reduced duplication.
