Ethos

Smyth Lilley Associates deliver 2 key benefits to our clients, both of which are highly desirable in today’s business environment:

 

  • Cost Reduction
  • Value Creation

Our strategic relationship with suppliers helps to ensure best price and value. The relationship begins before your first order is placed and continues well beyond the receipt of goods or service.

We seek to maximise the benefits for both supplier and customer to identify and implement mutual successes that will benefit both parties:

 

  • lowest cost
  • assurance of supply
  • continuous improvement
  • performance management
  • kpi`s

 

We actively review and measure the KPI’s to highlight opportunities and improvement. If we feel there is a product/service that will benefit your company or lower your business costs we will bring it to your attention.
