Spend smarter and increase enterprise value.
Cost optimization is a critical contributor to enterprise value creation. Typically, this effort is tackled by outside consulting firms that routinely dictate major, time consuming operational changes. SIB offers a simpler way. We help Private Equity firms realize increased profits by saving tens of thousands of dollars per month on dozens of indirect spends like SaaS, waste, shipping, utilities and treasury–without changing vendors or service levels.
With more than 200 subject matter experts, $26B in pricing data, and business intelligence gleaned from over 100,000 locations under management, SIB assures current vendors are invoicing, taxing, and surcharging correctly at best-in-market rates, terms, and conditions. We share only in a portion of the savings we unlock with fees typically held below the line.
