Purchasing and Finance 


How can I be sure we will receive savings with nGROUP and the pricing is firm?  

During our assessment process, the nGROUP team will work directly with the major shareholders within the facility to understand the cost structures within the operation and ensure we understand the process flow.  We also complete engineering analysis through time studies, work observation and historical data collection.  Our engineers and analysts compare our findings and confirm our conclusions with you.    Our benefits case will be developed using the verified results.  This meticulous approach allows us to be aggressive with our pricing structure and helps build our partnership on a strong foundation. 

Can nGROUP help increase sales and be more competitive? 

nGROUP’s program minimizes labor cost and improves key operational metrics such as turnaround time and quality.  This allows our partners to be extremely competitive versus the market.  In addition, outsourcing the operational components provides your team with the ability to focus on more strategic areas of your business.  nGROUP is also committed to continuous improvement year over year so you will continue to outperform your competitors. 

How can I be sure your goals are aligned with our company? 

During the assessment and implementation process, we work with multiple members of your team to develop a dashboard report that encompasses your important metrics.  That report will be utilized to understand our successes and areas for improvement. 

How do you incent productivity without harming quality? 

We not only put incentives in place, we also include disincentives for poor quality. Employees are only paid on first quality throughput, and they lose incentive for passing on product not up to standard. We also teach methods and processes that are enforced as part of our program. Due to this, quality checks are inherently in the process that was not there previously.  nGROUP understands the cost to quality, we can implement a program that reduces billing for sub-par quality and increases billing for exceptional quality. All product quantities and quality are confirmed by you as work is completed. This assures your quality processes have independent inspections. 

How do I recover cost as we invest in the operation? 

nGROUP works with our partners to develop pricing structures that encourage both investment by our partners and improvement in our program.  The pricing structure results in the ability to easily cost justify improvements by evaluating investment vs. expected savings. 

How do I capture year over year cost savings with nGROUP’s program? 

nGROUP continues to utilize their resources to improve our client’s operations.  The savings are different in each location.  Operational improvements and savings are contingent on many factors such as flexibility within the operation, extent of nGROUP’s services, work content changes from year to year, and of course the ever changing costs associated with labor.  It is typical to see savings of 3-8% from year to year. 

What is the cost to use the nGROUP solution? 

The fact is, the only loser in the program is the inefficiency in the process. If we cannot remove these inefficiencies and find a way to save you money, we will tell you that your operation is not an application. We do require a $25,000 assessment retainer upfront that will be credited toward your first week of billing. If we find that our program cannot help save you at least 10% or meet your specific assessment goal, we will fully refund the assessment fee as well. 

Why outsource my operation? 

nGROUP focuses on operational processes within your facilities to reduce cost, while improving productivity, quality, and service levels.  We allow your current management team to focus on strategic issues rather than the day to day burden of production and labor issues.  Our world class team and processes along with our partners ultimate oversight ensures you maintain control and receive the service and results you desire. 

Why do you think you can do it better than we can do it? 

Outsourcing is not a zero sum game.  Many organizations fail to understand that the sum of the parts, when combined effectively, actually exceed the whole.  By adding nGROUP, you are bringing additional resources to your operation to enhance your overall performance.  nGROUP has experience working with market leaders across the nation where we have had the privilege to develop, learn, and utilize world class best practices.  In addition nGROUP is dedicated to the improvement of our client’s operations.  All of our resources are utilized and trained to optimize our client's operation.  The nGROUP team is continually updated on the latest improvements from across our partner base.  We also invest in continued education for our team, develop and continue to invest in technology, tools, and solutions to improve our service offering.
