Our Services

We offer a variety of services that can significantly improve the operational and financial aspects of your supply chain.  Services that we offer include:


Organizational Assessment

How is your procurement group organized and does each member of the team have the appropriate skillsets to perform at the highest level? What kind of traction does it get with internal business partners? How effective is the organization in meeting the pressing needs of the business? How much time is spent on the critical aspects of strategic sourcing vs. transactional processing? These are the primary questions AES Consulting helps you answer during the organizational assessment process. read more>>


Sourcing Strategies

Procurement is a critical function in today’s competitive environment. And with the costs of purchased goods and services being more than 50% of sales at most companies, the stakes are huge. So often, the focus in strategic sourcing is simply on how well negotiations have been conducted. Don’t get me wrong, it is very important to have a good negotiation strategy and to capture your fair share of value in negotiations. read more>>

It is important for your organization to know and follow a well thought out sourcing methodology in order to get the maximum value from the work that they do. read more>>


Supplier Relationship Management

Does the following situation sound familiar? Your procurement group has cycled through several years sourcing your most important spend categories. With each new round of RFP’s, you see a significant reduction in the benefits generated and you begin to realize that too much of your effort is being spent in managing the switch to the new suppliers and stabilizing those relationships. Little if any time is being dedicated to working with your suppliers on your most pressing business problems. Don’t despair. It is time to think about deploying a Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) strategy. read more>>

Supplier Diversity

Being successful as a company is often about having a keen understanding of the marketplace and its customers. That means developing a diverse supplier base that reflects the marketplace and communities that a business serves and tapping into the energy, creativity and fresh perspectives that minority, women and disabled veteran owned businesses (collectively MWBE) can deliver. read more>>
