Optimise Cost

Rapid Grip & Control

Overview

Whether driven by trading decline, cash preservation or performance improvement motivations, organisations of all sizes are now seeking more grip and control of their financial performance including rapid cost and cash improvements.

Our approach seeks to help businesses deliver sustainable savings whilst retaining core operational resilience. We look to enhance the underlying control environment, bring greater visibility to financial performance, and improve underlying cost and cash positions.

What we do

At Interpath, we support businesses to develop a stronger grip over the financial performance through enhanced visibility and improved understanding of where money is spent, and what value is derived from it.

Together we identify the fastest and/or most practical approach to implement improvements whilst achieving anticipated benefits and create/sustain behaviour change to prevent costs creeping back in.

Our work is supported by data analytics tools with a proven track record of uncovering new insights and delivering sustainable cost reduction. Our recommendations are robust, supported by your own data and our cross-sector insight and experience.

We’re also aware that cost reduction programmes are often challenging to design and deploy, with impacts across multiple stakeholder groups. That’s why our experienced team work with you shoulder-to-shoulder to help manage the activity sensitively and professionally.

Strategic transformation and business case optimisation

Overview

Large-scale transformation can be a very exciting time for an organisation, but it can be difficult to make the optimal decisions fast whilst executing seamlessly on time and to schedule, without disruption to day-to-day business activities.

We help our clients navigate what's next, supporting end-to-end transformation and business cases from strategy to implementation.

What we do

Our team of experts support end-to-end business transformation, including:

  • Strategy – creating a compelling case for change aligned to wider business policy and strategy.
  • Target Operating Model - applying your strategy to every aspect of operations.
  • Business case support and options appraisals – cost benefit analysis aligned with the HMT ‘Green Book’.
  • Programme management – plan, guide, review and challenge all aspects of the programme to minimise risk and maximise benefits.
  • Implementation support - work shoulder-to-shoulder with you to implement transformation, embed and sustain change.

Exits (non-core)

Overview

Whether you are a high-performing organisation, or suffering a trading decline, there may be parts of your business that no longer fit your portfolio or broader ambitions. We help optimise the value from these situations from portfolio assessment to options appraisal to contingency planning of implementing fix, sell or close strategies.

What we do

At Interpath we provide end-to-end support, from plan to execution. We start by identifying non-core and underperforming aspects of your business that might be diluting your value. Working closely with you, we identify options to fix, sell or close these aspects of your business, assessing the likely benefits and implications. We do all this with a multi-disciplinary team of finance, restructuring, transaction, and tax advisory experts, covering all angles to provide considered, well-rounded options and recommendations.

We know implementation is the hardest part of any programme. We have a hands-on approach, and work shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients to prioritise, plan and execute opportunities identified. With this approach, we ensure buy-in, and ownership of opportunities identified remains with our clients, encouraging sustained, long-term improvement.
