Our Consulting Services for “SCF Adopters”

SCF-Adopter

S·C·F-a·dop·ter /SCF abbr -əˈdɒptər/ a person or company (e.g. corporates, large corporates) that starts to use SCF as a new product or service. 2 a person or company that chooses to take up, follow or use SCF solutions. 3 a person or company that chooses to bring their current SCF program to the next level of maturity.

Decisions made by a corporate on its competitive strategy lead to a demand for certain competences in their supply chain. To obtain and secure these supply chain competences in the long run, there is a need for working capital throughout that supply chain. The supply chain finance (SCF) strategy is fundamental in supporting the supply chains capabilities in meeting the corporate’s competitive strategy.

As an ‘SCF-adopter’ going through the initial phase of creating or revising your SCF Strategy (or high-level goal of your SCF project), you can leverage the expertise of Capital Chains. Together we accelerate your progress throughout the various phases in setting up, implementing, supporting/enabling the roll-out and improving your SCF program. The collaboration with Capital Chains is based upon a clear division of work and with different roles and responsibilities for each (sub)phase. Every phase is self-contained and provides you with the opportunity to make a balanced go/no-go decision.

In the end, our approach facilitates a thorough analysis and solid basis for any (investment) decision. With this basis, we turn financial supply chains into value creators, which makes us Financial Game Changers.

SCF Readiness Quick Scan

The SCF Readiness Quick Scan is an assessment of the SCF-adopters’ organization’s readiness for implementing an SCF solution and can be used as a first step in the journey towards launching an SCF program. We focus on six important areas for any successful SCF implementation by interviewing internal and external stakeholders and analyzing the various Purchase-to-Pay [P2P] processes and supplier spend data. A hands-on report is provided identifying an SCF-adopters’ internal and external challenges (As-Is vs. To-Be) accompanied by a high-level business case.
