The Hackett Group, a business advisory firm and an Answerthink company announced that it will offer supply chain benchmarking services through an alliance with the leading provider of supply chain benchmarks, PRTM's Performance Measurement Group (PMG).

The addition of supply chain to Hackett's existing array of benchmarking services is part of an ongoing expansion designed to provide clients with a single source for guidance and advice driven by empirical data. Companies will be able to leverage PMG's widely used supply chain benchmarks in combination with other Hackett offerings to obtain a comprehensive analysis of key business support functions.

Benchmarking is a key component of supply chain performance management and a tested method for setting business goals to drive results. It helps companies understand how their performance levels and practices compare to competitors and how these impact companies' abilities to gain market share.

Under the agreement, Hackett will be the outside sales and marketing channel for PMG supply chain benchmarking services, with PMG and PRTM continuing to execute the supply chain benchmarking engagements. PRTM will continue to offer versions of PMG's supply chain benchmarks as part of its own consulting engagements and with other alliance partners including SAP and the Supply Chain Council.
