As a result of the recent, dramatic changes in the global economy, we find ourselves doing business in a new world.  And in this new economic world, many of the old solutions are no longer sufficient.  With traditional methods such as slicing jobs merely compounding the problem—and amplified marketing efforts bringing with them amplified expenditures—innovative economic solutions are quickly coming to the forefront as the most effective methods for weathering the current storm.

The Next Idea has created its own proprietary purchasing and cost reduction system to provide value to clients looking to reduce their purchasing and expenses.

TNI’s system differs from other cost-cutting consulting services because of its value-based focus on protecting jobs!  Rather than relying on layoffs, TNI uses proprietary analyses to reveal overlooked expenses and unique sources of revenue.  Additionally, we support clients in more efficiently utilizing employee skill sets to generate higher productivity…without increasing hours or workload.  Therefore, we accomplish our mission with no disruption to staff, operations, or the standard flow of work.

Unlike most consultancies, TNI does not merely pass along strategies, then leave clients to struggle with implementation.  As with all our projects, we take a hands-on role in execution, either completing change initiatives ourselves or actively supporting the process.
