GSI - Gold Standard Index

What do we mean by Gold Standard benchmarking?

GSI™ is our proprietary benchmarking tool, able to measure cost and service performance across comparable, best-in-class transport, warehouse and customer service operations within the FMCG sector.  The feedback will help you understand the opportunity for change, identify areas for improvement and specific focus, where intervention will offer the greatest value. GSI™ has proven invaluable when deciding whether to renew or re-tender contracts and is central to realising the benefit of either approach.  GSI™ can help answer questions such as:


  • How do I know if I am getting value for money?
  • How do I know if I am getting the quality of service I need?
  • How do I know if any invited to tender are running their networks as effectively as they could, or should be?
  • How can I know what I should be expecting to pay?


How can Gold Standard benchmarking benefit your business?

GSI™ will benefit directors and managers responsible for service quality and cost, wishing to identify opportunities to improve performance of internal teams or external suppliers. It is simple to use and feedback is delivered direct to your inbox. By comparing your own activity profile against the standard and then using this to compare against your peers and competitors, GSI™ can help you identify how much you might save if you were to buy your services at Gold Standard rates. GSI™ can help you deliver significant savings within as little as 12 weeks.
