4C Associates - Cost Transformation Analysis and Solutions

4C is a multiple award-winning specialist cost transformation solution provider. We combine specialist consultancy services, technology solutions and managed services to provide organisations with the analysis, insight and tools that they need to manage their costs. We work in a range of ways and with various organisations to reduce their cost base.

Opportunity diagnostics and business case for change

We provide a detailed assessment of what level of savings is realistic, as well as how to achieve these cost savings without impacting on service or quality.

This service also provides a roadmap to savings delivery, prioritising large and quick opportunities, and explains what needs to be done, in which categories of spend, in order to deliver the greatest level of savings. We draw on our extensive benchmark database and robust analytical tools to be able to quantify benefits and compare organisations to best practice.

Cost reduction programmes

We work to implement robust cost reduction programmes. We draw on our deep functional experience across areas such as marketing, HR, property, IT, finance, logistics and production. Our work covers managing demand and reducing activity unit cost.

Spend management and ongoing managed services

We provide a range of services to manage costs and suppliers on an ongoing basis. Managing cost successfully is a continuous process and we work with a number of organisations on a permanent basis to ensure continuous cost improvement and leadership.

Post-merger integration

We work with organisations at points of major change, including mergers and carve outs, to ensure that their cost base is optimised for the new business mix. We provide a set of tools and resources to quickly be able to ensure that the optimal supply structure and cost base is in place. We are able to deliver and lock in outstanding benefits due to our specific expertise. We offer:
