    “We approached Novo-K to help us understand the options for tail spend management at Inmarsat. They completed a thorough, detailed and high quality piece of work which has helped us shape our thinking and make a decision on how best to move forward.  The Novo-K Dataction team were supportive, approachable and professional throughout”

    We were so grateful to Michelle for her expert project managing of our warehouse transition project. She led this work brilliantly, ensuring risks were identified and managed, the tasks carried out in good time, and there was excellent project reporting to senior leaders.

    “Novo-K completed a spend analysis for CFG providing clarity over our key supplier expenditure. The report highlighted opportunities to both save money and improve efficiencies. The Novo-K team walked us through the data analysis, sharing recommendations and offering guidance on next steps. This information will be used to plan and deliver cost transformation activities, so that we can continue to support our membership. We found the Novo-K team involved with us to be professional, thorough and knowledgeable.
