Zero Heroes study each function to map the expenditure of your company. Whether it is optimizing your direct spends like raw materials, labor and procurement or indirect spend like telecommunications, office supplies, transport, payroll services. We uncover costs that yield little or no impact on the intended business outcomes which is typically overlooked by internal management teams. Our ZERO tolerance to wastage enables our HEROES to sniff out expenses that can be fruitfully redeployed for better use. Cost savings enable either a direct increase in profit or redeployment of funds resulting in increased revenue opportunities, driving faster growth.
Our Cost Management service will eliminate activities that are non-value adding and reallocate your resources. One of the ways we do this is by enabling the choice of make, buy or a combination of the same for the best results. We deploy cost saving and cost allocation initiatives that are time tested. By involving each stakeholder, we ensure ownership and enable you to create and maintain a company culture of ZERO wastage. We will not only execute all these initiatives but also monitor, review and modify as needed. There will be minimal involvement of the internal team in the project, leaving them free to pursue their key responsibilities. In the end, you will be left with increased working capital for investment in growth.
We help you devise optimum yield from your support functions. With an understanding of your industry and business, we help you decide between third-party contracting, outsourcing or in-house. If needed, we may set-up quality standards for outsourced work.
