About Jinesh Patel
I joined Auditel following a successful career, spanning over two decades at LexisNexis, part of RELX a FTSE 100 company. During that time, I held various positions, and more latterly commercial responsibility, in consultative business development roles, for delivering revenues of $20m, where I helped organisations save costs by driving efficiencies into their workflow processes. I managed various market verticals to include direct & channel sales globally into Southern Europe, Africa & The Caribbean, primarily to law firms and public sector bodies. I also have considerable experience working with booksellers, subscription agents & wholesalers within the UK Book Trade industry since 2003.
Further, I had responsibility for a team across multiple islands in The Caribbean, which involved, coaching, leading, managing, and collaborating with them. This allowed us to deliver double digit growth consistently, over many years, whilst raising commercial awareness of the brand, within legal markets.
So why work with me?
In-house strategic procurement is expensive. It is very common businesses don’t have the time, resource & expertise, culminating in non-purchasing trained employees making significant purchasing decisions without the tools or knowledge of the supplier market.
I believe in outcomes not outputs. Simply doing the work, ticking boxes, and hitting KPIs (while important) is not showing success. What really counts is the end-result, helping clients fund revenue generating activities & profitability.
I am customer-centric and will always ensure I put the needs of my clients ‘front & centre;’ in everything I do. This naturally allows me to provide solutions for any number of challenges faced by my customers, allowing them to focus on their core revenue generating activities.
I do this firstly, by taking time to understand your business and key challenges. Then I will use our extensive expertise and experience to identify quick wins, and longer-term strategic initiatives, that will significantly reduce your costs.
My aim is to work in partnership with you, to significantly cut costs, improve cash flow, increase profits, as well as freeing up staff and management time. Often, the work we undertake on your behalf, comes at no direct cost to your organisation, and can be factored into savings made or contracts negotiated on your organisation’s behalf, thus making this a self-financing and low risk process.
As part of the Auditel network I can call upon the support of over 100 procurement specialists who are all experts in their own field. We cover over 100 different cost categories, from energy to laundry, waste management to mobiles, office stationery to consumables. I bring these experts in on a project-by-project basis, providing expertise when needed. We then work alongside your Finance, Operational & Procurement teams, providing the external help your organisation requires to deliver business transformation and sustainability.
On average we have helped businesses like yours reduce costs by between 10% and 50%, whilst simultaneously improving operational efficiency.
