Innovation: The First Digital Platform for Cost Management

Innovation: The First Digital Platform for Cost Management

COSMAN offer their clients a new way to constantly manage costs: Digital Cost Management. The proprietary SHAPER® platform allows organisations to move from traditional cost management, based on localized and discontinuous intervention, often spurred by external stimuli, to an innovative and continuous management. Based on digital technology, on automation and on Business Analytics tools, it doesn't interfere with the normal corporate operations but rather strengthens their operative effectiveness and efficiency.

Certainty of Results

Certainty of Results

COSMAN's projects are successful 90% of the time because they are carried out with methods, tools and services that make it an appropriate intervention for the internal company structures, overcoming habits and rigidity. Quantification of needs adjusted to the business' real needs + optimised purchasing models compared to available supply systems + consumption processes rationalised according to Lean principles = less waste and fewer resources involved in activities with low added value.

Solutions without Sacrifice and at No Cost

Solutions without Sacrifice and at No Cost

COSMAN's mission is to optimise their clients' cost structures encouraging growth without sacrifices, thus maintaining their service level, quality and security virtually unchanged. We adopt the success-fee remuneration model, and it corresponds to a percentage of the actual savings achieved during the first 12 or 24 months of implementation, from the recommendations specified in the improvement plan.

Permanent Advantages

Permanent Advantages

In order to achieve structural and long-term savings it is necessary to go back to the real causes of the costs incurred. COSMAN's analysts do not act on the costs as such but rather offer action plans to affect the drivers at the top of the chain that originate them. Acting on the causes and not on the effects can remove the problems at their root, allowing for optimisations that offer permanent advantages.

Modular Project Scope

Modular Project Scope

The COSMAN approach can be scaled to any organisational context. It can pertain to a single cost (transport, INAIL contributions, energy, maintenance, …) or an extended complex (infrastructural costs, personnel costs, logistics costs, …). It can be applied as a single project to contain costs, or as a service to optimise costs with emphasis on needs analysis, purchasing, and usage models, or as an outsourced management service for specific activities.

Positioning Focus Implementation

COSMAN's Analysis Structure, with their 4 Technical Competence Centres, the Digital Area and over 100 analysts, give the client an immediate benchmark on the analysed costs. After only 40 days the clients can see for themselves the first optimisation possibilities, receiving a positioning that is focused on the single cost category. Over 20 years of experience in Cost Management services allow COSMAN to move to the implementation of the savings within the planned timetable and according to the planned improvement levels, supporting the corporate cost owners in managing the different interests that are often the obstacle to change in organisations.
