The global leaders in working capital improvement

REL, a division of The Hackett Group, is a global working capital consulting firm dedicated to delivering sustainable working capital improvement across a company's business operations. Through our proven, hands-on approach, analytical rigor and collaborative client relationships, we have delivered more than $25 billion in cash, creating the liquidity to fund acquisitions, product development, debt reduction and share buy-back programs.

We focus on three critical end-to-end processes to improve working capital management by identifying sustainable ways to reduce inventories, streamline accounts payable and increase accounts receivable:

  • Forecast-to-Fulfill - all the activities associated with creating and delivering products
  • Customer-to-Cash - all activities associated with generating an invoice and getting paid
  • Source-to-Settle - all the activities associated with finding a supplier and paying them, also known as purchase-to-pay and procure-to-pay

We have worked with many of the world's leading businesses to expertly balance the trade-offs between working capital improvement, cost reduction, service performance and business risk. Our global cultural experience and extensive process expertise has been developed over more than 30 years of identifying and implementing best practices to achieve operational excellence.

Clients enjoy working with us. Our pragmatic, congenial working style helps gain wide acceptance within your organization to maximize and speed results. All of our projects have a quantifiable payback, typically a 3:1 return on your investment, and are self funding with in the first year.

REL showed the disciplines and maturity to "run with the ball" and we admired the way REL pushed back when needed to and kept the momentum going in a difficult and complex situation.
