Our competency in Operations Management and Supply Chain Management within the Central & Eastern European Markets recommends us to those companies present or preparing to start an operation in this region.


Operations Management

We offer a cost-effective and professional internal audit service which adds real value to your organization. We do this by providing internal auditors who understand how a business works and how the management systems can support your business objectives.
We evaluate and generate solutions for Operations improvement through:

  • Operational KPI’s analyses and improvement.


Supply Chain Management

Suppliers Management and Development
We evaluate the quantitative and qualitative contribution of the suppliers to the success of the Customer’s company:

  • Suppliers auditing and evaluation: We asses the capability, R&D, capacity, quality systems, and management skills;
  • Supplier’s development and qualification/certification planning and execution. This step is a natural continuation to the Supplier auditing and evaluation step, and its objective is to bring the supplier to the levels required by our client.
  • Suppliers network optimization;
  • Evaluation of the risks associated with the existing suppliers.

Whether the objective is merely to assess how the supplier meets contractual commitments, or if the supplier is capable of implementing the improvements you need, then auditors can provide a valuable and professional independent supplier audit, based on our customer’s specific requirements.
We assess potential suppliers and audit existing suppliers' performance.

  • Purchasing strategies,
  • Purchasing policies and procedures,
  • Purchasing planning and administration,
  • Contracts negotiation and administration,

  • Research for new suppliers – evaluation of thei potential.


In addition, we offer:

  • Warehouses, Logistics and Transportation optimization;
  • Make or Buy analyses - Outsourcing programs development and implementation;
  • Transition from Purchasing Management to Supply Chain Management;
  • Consultancy for ERP implementing, Supply Chain modules.


Interim Management

We do not aim to become a permanent fixture within Customer’s organization, but when necessary we can provide valuable Interim Management to ensure that the organization continues to fulfill the requirements of the appropriate standards, and, most importantly, that the management systems really fit to the organization.


We focus on Operations and Supply Chain Management, but, increasingly, we are asked to perform additional jobs linked to our core activities:

  • Personnel assessment and development, for positions within the Purchasing and Supply Chain organizations;
  • Organizing the Purchasing & Supply Chain functions;
  • Specialized translations, including commercial contracts, technical specifications, commercial terms and conditions.

Our expertise is based on “the real life practice” of our consultants, resulting from many years spent in senior management positions in FORTUNE 500 or multinational corporations.


We have created an extensive network of consultancy resources, which we employ successfully to add expertise in the other fields such as Business Start-ups and Development, Relocations, Business Strategy.
