in EBITDA, cash, resilience, and growth across your portfolio company supply chains and operations.

Don’t settle for marginal improvements

Capture the significant double-digit improvements we are delivering to clients today.

For private equity partners and portfolio CEOs looking for a step-change in measurable enterprise value, we identify and take responsibility for the implementation of financial gains and operations value creation across the entire PE deal life cycle: from due diligence, to in-flight improvement and integration, through to pre-exit optimization.

Unlike other point consulting providers, our unique accelerated and guaranteed Total Value Optimization (TVO)TM approach drives the triple impact of reducing costs, releasing cash, and improving service levels across a company’s entire supply chain and operation.


Total Value Optimization (TVO)TM

TVO delivers measurable and long-lasting enterprise value improvement leading to improved fund performance, by driving enhanced value and resilience across the entire buy-make-move supply chain and operation.

Total Value Optimization (TVO)TM

Most consulting firms deploy a traditional consulting model, looking to identify savings with point solutions; for example, strategic sourcing, forecasting, inventory management, lean manufacturing, or distribution. However, successful implementation of point solutions do not deliver substantial and long-term EBITDA, service, and resilience gain.

The TVO Difference - Don’t settle for marginal improvements

Total Value OptimizationTM is the best approach we have seen to achieve integrated supply chain excellence in logistics, operations, and procurement
