The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it's the same problem you had last year.

John Foster Dulles
In today's hyper-competitive marketplace, it has never been more challenging to continually build shareholder value.  To do so, most executives aim to both grow revenues and reduce costs through improved operational efficiencies.  But in many mature industries growing top-line revenue is often a lot harder than improving the efficiencies of the production and distribution process in place today. According to the Aberdeen Group, a $1 savings in the procurement process has the same bottom-line impact as a $5 increase in sales.  Similarly, AMR Research found that just a 3% improvement in perfect order fulfillment translates to a 1% increase in profits.  
 
Streamlining the procurement process, or boosting the percentage of perfect orders received, is all about improved collaboration with suppliers.  Keough Associates helps some of the world’s largest firms improve their supply chain operations through:
  • Assessing & benchmarking  their supply chain processes
  • Leveraging their current IT infrastructure to establish cost-effective exchange of supply chain data with customers and suppliers
  • Establishing best-in-class supplier relationships that deliver better results at significantly lower costs
