Strategic analysis & Business Intelligence
In this evironment of increasing uncertainty, making decisions in business is a continuous challenge. Africawide provides unique capabilities to support our clients in the strategic aspects of their businesses. Through our analytical tools and models, we are able to bring insight and intelligence to our clients – helping them develop innovative solutions and respond quickly.
Procurement & Supply Chain
External spend through procurement is by far the largest cost driver for our clients, representing as much as 70% of the total cost base in some industries. Recognising this as a potential source for unlocking significant value , we support our clients in managing all aspects of their external procurement and supply chain. We also provide extra capacity through outsourcing services to ensure good governance and efficient operation.
The role of the CFO is integral to decision making and performance of companies. Africawide works with CFOs to transform their organisations from reactive stewards to pro-active leaders in the financial performance of their companies, through our working capital management, cost efficiency and financial planning and modelling tools. We also work closely with public sector organisations to lower their risks and manage efficiencies.
Project management & implementation
Most strategies fail because of execution. Africawide supports our clients with programme management, delivery and follow through of strategy implementation. The programme management office (PMO) is an integral component of large scale transformation / strategy implementation. We also provide extensive capacity and capability building – core to the sustainability of all solutions.
Technology & Systems
Technology is now central every business – and is not optional. The only challenge is that technology alone does not solve the challenges faced by businesses and needs to be linked tightly to the business objectives and operating model. We support our clients in managing the facets of technology that are tightly linked with business performance, processes as well as overall management of the portfolio of IT programmes.
