Is your organization optimizing every dollar spent?
We not only find cost savings, but we help you build a sustainable model with spend portfolios and contracts that enable you to consistently and repeatedly challenge every spend.
Challenge Every Spend
- Strategy and sourcing decisions are always in your control.
- Our clients have experienced meaningful and material cost savings.
- Your business means a great deal to your existing and potential suppliers. We frequently see savings north of 20%.
- Price is important, but price without quality and performance hurts your business. At Black Ops Strategic Partners, we offer more than “3 bids and a buy”. We build Service Level Agreements and your business requirements into the agreements to hold your suppliers accountable.
Leverage Every Agreement
We create strategic and proactive reports, and reminders that give you the information you need to focus on profitably growing your business and avoiding risks.
Leverage Every Agreement
