Making the right decisions at the outset

Making the right decisions on equipment at the outset is critical, ensuring you acquire the right equipment, at the right time, financed using the most appropriate form of funding.

Active management of costs, change and performance throughout the lifecycle

The equipment your organisation needs will last many years. Throughout that time, managing costs, change and performance is essential to ensure costs remain predictable and equipment performs adequately.


Few organisations have sufficient capital to meet their asset replacement programmes. So it’s never been more important to achieve best value from every penny you invest.

We can help. We’ll help you make the right decisions at the outset. Then, with active management of costs, change and suppliers, we’ll help you lock in that value and drive further savings.

Replacement Planning

Detailed planning to support business cases to refresh ageing equipment

Minimising whole-life costs starts with a plan. All too often, the focus is on day one costs, which can easily lead to the wrong decisions. Our unique whole-life planning approach considers all equipment-related spend from asset cost and financing to maintenance and consumables — helping you make the right decisions at the outset.

Acquire and Finance

Cost-effective acquisition & financing solutions

Once you’ve identified the replacements, we’ll help you procure them at best value. We’ll also work with you to identify the most appropriate form of financing, setting up contracts that will deliver the lowest whole-life costs and then actively manage them to keep costs both low and predictable.

Supplier performance management

Solving today’s urgent capacity gap

Effective management of suppliers is critical to ensuring performance, compliance and best value. From making certain maintenance visits are carried out to managing long-term financing costs, we actively manage supplier contracts, ensuring they stick to the terms and that you get what you pay for.

Cost management

Management and minimisation of whole-life costs

Achieving best value at the outset is only half the story. To ensure best value is maintained, and to drive further savings throughout the lifecycle, costs must be actively managed. With smart procurement and active management of recurrent spend components, such as maintenance, we’ll minimise your whole-life costs and generate savings.

Change management

Preserving value through effective change management

Whether you’re upgrading, sweating your assets or disposing of equipment, you’ll need to respond to change. We’ll ensure your contracts predict change — and that change is easily managed — preserving the value of your original decisions.

We’d love to hear from you.
