The Arcante Group trains and advises its clients within the framework of long-term relationships and, as such, many clients are loyal to us from one year to the next.
From the initial contact with our Business Development team, through the interaction with dedicated consultants for the needs analysis and the execution of services and supported by our Client Centre, the entire Group organisation is mobilised to ensure a seamless, value-added experience and to provide clients with the expertise and services they expect.
Faced with unprecedented price increases from its suppliers due to rising raw material and energy costs after years of deflation, our client must reconcile protecting its profitability with preserving consumer purchasing power. Arcante Group assists its Purchasing teams in the rigorous preparation and precise execution of their negotiations in order to best defend their interests while taking manufacturers' constraints into account. Arcante Group prepares buyers to conduct successful negotiation interviews in order to make them effective and relevant in conducting their negotiations on price, business plans and promotional activities.
Although our client has a very strong brand awareness and a premium image, it has to take into account the consequences of price increases applied by its suppliers when managing consumer sales prices. Arcante Group assists the Purchasing Department in the preparation and execution of negotiations with suppliers by integrating detailed price breakdowns into the argumentation systems. The combination of Arcante Group's negotiation technology and analytical view of purchase prices provides a relevant and factual negotiation approach.
This Tier 1 equipment manufacturer operates in a highly competitive environment with highly volatile prices. Despite a strong technological and innovative offering, it faces significant pressure from OEMs, which puts the profitability of its global operations and its capacity for innovation at risk. Arcante Group supports Key Account teams in all global markets (Europe, Asia, Americas) in order to give them the tools and methods to manage their relationships with their clients on a sustained basis and to reach agreements at the expected levels. The training programmes are global and make it possible to build a community of practice and a common language across the Group's entities and countries for the hundreds of trainees trained each year.
Our client is a major player in transport and logistics in France and Europe. With expertise in all aspects of the supply chain, it is the leader in express transport and distribution. Subject to numerous inflationary and regulatory constraints such as 'green' traffic in urban areas, it strives to guarantee its customers the highest product distribution quality at the best cost. Each year, we help sector managers, branch managers and sales managers to defend their interests in the best possible way while respecting the necessary ecological transition.
Our client is a major energy infrastructure manager in France and has a critical public service mission for our country. The Social Affairs Department ensures a constant and creative social dialogue aimed at guaranteeing its thousands of employees the best working and development conditions in a strong regulatory environment. We have been supporting it for many years in its negotiations with the social partners in the context of changes in working conditions through the mandatory annual negotiations (NAO) and all other company agreements (teleworking, working hours, etc.).
