With the pragmatic approach the REL consultants got to the heart of each process and introduced some real hand-on tools and solutions to improve communication on and execution of key-processes in NWC-management supporting change of mindset across management.
REL's input in our supply chain process provided real opportunities for improvement in a short period of time. Their knowledge and strong work ethic were key elements in our decision to continue do business with them.
The REL analysis was very good quality; focused, hit the 80/20 and was definitely robust. The team asked sensible questions, listened, absorbed and synthesized the information into the project approach. They were sensitive to the different stakeholder requirements and responsive to requests. I would definitely use them again.

We were impressed with the people of REL; impressed with how they explained the various concepts involved, their emphasis on knowledge transfer, and their collaborative, team-oriented approach. REL proposed an approach that involved Cytec in every aspect of the effort, rather than doing everything with Cytec personnel watching.

I was very pleased to have a team of such professional people working with me; they looked to identify and resolve issues from day one. REL are extremely professional and dedicated to delivering quality work.

REL provided both an independent viewpoint and consistent approach - the same people were involved in both phases. The reporting was simple, basic and useful. I like that REL is a small, niche consultancy - they are experts. The differentiator (to other consultancies) is the personal approach that REL provides.

REL brings in good professionals, who roll up their sleeves and start working with local teams to make things happen. They have a hands-on mentality and a no-nonsense approach. They are not like typical consultants who only give you plans to follow.
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.
We learned a lot about ourselves - the good and the bad. The project was very professionally handled and has given us good value. It's done what needed to be done and the results were outstanding. A great project.
