By combining this information with proprietary, best-in-class industry data, Valorant is helping companies maximize value from their supply base and stay ahead of the market.
Managing 3rd Party Risk: We help organizations develop a diversified and robust supplier base for critical items. This in turn reduces a company's dependence on a single supplier, which is critical in minimizing exposure to supply chain disturbances.
Optimizing Working Capital: Gaining visibility into supplier payment terms and ensuring they are aligned with industry standards can help organizations maximize the availability of working capital.
Reducing Maverick Purchasing: Negotiating advantageous terms with strategic suppliers is only beneficial if purchases are made against those specific contracts. Through a spend analysis project, We estimate the amount of spend that falls outside of pre-negotiated, available contracts and develop a strategy (along with CSR and Legal measures) to re-route this spend and drive immediate savings.
