Supply Chain Benchmarking

At Fulcrium, we have been at the forefront of supply chain benchmarking for over 24 years.

It is no longer sufficient for the supply chain function to be satisfied with simple cost savings.

Now, its practitioners must leverage the entire supply chain to reduce risk and deliver bottom line profits. They need to think long-term and strategically while identifying and implementing quick wins, and have real influence and power with all the stakeholders in the business.

In the Oil & Gas sector, in particular, our clients have recognised that to contend in a fast-changing and unprecedentedly competitive world they need extraordinary supply chain specialists.

Specialists that are knowledgeable about the technological and logistical challenges posed by managing both conventional and unconventional resource portfolios, and that understand how to optimise operator-supplier partnerships for competitive advantage.

Supermajor transforms service company relationships

This global supermajor used Fulcrium’s benchmarking services to provide unprecedented insights into service companies.

Contact us for a copy of the full case study.

Fulcrium gives an independent view of each service firm, using a very wide range of sources, making them from our point of view a highly valuable secret intelligence resource.

They also understand - from having worked in them, how best-in-class service companies and technology firms operate in terms of structuring engagements, setting fee levels and building high performing mutually-beneficial relationships.

That is, they now help us to get the very best out of our service company partnerships.

I believe that, as a result of Fulcrium’s involvement, we are five or six years ahead of the other supermajors in terms of our supply chain strategy and I am very proud that we are in that position.
