Supplier credibility serves Auditel clients well

As cost, purchase and supplier management consultants it’s often assumed that our focus is just on saving money for our clients. Well, it is, of course. But the Auditel service is so much more.

For example, one of our manufacturing clients with a significant energy spend had been trying to move to a more effective rate with an alternative supplier but was being thwarted at every attempt by the stringent application of credit checking restrictions. In other words, supplier bureaucracy was forcing them to continue paying over the odds.

However, by leveraging the contacts and relationships we have built over 16 years as consultants in the energy industry we’ve been able to negotiate a manageable and affordable security deposit arrangement, enabling our client to benefit from both lower energy rates and improved service. I think that’s what you call a win win win situation!
