About Us 2017-11-14T19:13:32+00:00


We have more experience

We are sourcing specialists. Our consultants have on average 19 years of sourcing experience each. We operate an “experience/expertise” consulting model – not a leveraged pyramid model. We have advised on hundreds of transactions, with £billions spend in the past 5 years.

We are independent

We have no bias. We are solution agnostic. We provide honest advice tailored to the need of our clients.

We are part of your team

We work with you as part of your team, and share our experience/knowledge freely. Clients get more from us than just consultancy.

We have the best market data

We work on dozens of outsourcing deals a year, and we systematically track price and service data. Using a combination of data analysis and experienced judgement, we are able to provide fact-based advice on what the current market can offer. In particular, we can provide holistic, “3-D” benchmarking which reflects all the key dimensions of the service delivered – and provides actionable outputs based on what is available in the market.

We try harder

We are specialists with one simple purpose – to help clients get the most from their sourcing arrangements. Each client engagement is critically important to us. We work with some of the world’s biggest companies but our services are always tailored and delivered by a dedicated team who are passionate about the success of every project.

Brief History

On 1st December 2014 Alsbridge plc left the Alsbridge group and re-branded as Aecus, an independent consulting and benchmarking firm focused on providing the best tailored sourcing advice to its clients across Europe.
