  • Call for Tender for SAP Infrastructure Design & Deployment for a Retail Giant
    Our client is a travel retailer of luxury goods, with stores located in over 14 countries worldwide. As part of their digital transformation strategy, they were looking for a strategic partner to deploy and manage a specific set of services on their SAP infrastructure. We led the end-to-end call of tender on behalf of the client. Key activities included designing an RFP framework to analyze submitted bids from scratch, conducting negotiations with bidders and coaching key stakeholders on IT Procurement best practices.
  • Vendor Management Office Deployment for a Global Bank
    Our client is a global bank, with regional headquarters set up in Singapore. The CIO has engaged us to assess their current supplier relationships and to set up a Vendor Management Office within the bank. We led the end-to-end RFP process, while implementing and coaching internal stakeholders on Procurement best practices. We also performed a Suppliers Matrix Overview for the bank and led negotiations on existing contract terms with key providers. As a result, the client was successfully able to achieve 224% ROI within one month, while ensuring that 100% of projects started on time.
