About Our Firm:

Optimatum is a New York City-based vendor management firm that focuses exclusively on the HR supply chain. Our turnkey solutions improve the financial and operational performance of our clients' healthcare plans through our unique multidisciplinary approach, which includes forensic analysis, the maintenance of existing vendor relationships, and increasing transparency and accountability. The net impacts of this are meaningful reductions in cost and improved plan performance.

In our employer-sponsored healthcare group, our clients reap direct efficiencies of 10-12% on their healthcare costs within one year (and 5-7% in subsequent years) while maintaining existing vendors and current benefits without shifting costs.

Through our HR Transitional Services for Acquisitions & Divestitures, we are at the epicenter of the “biggest deal boom in a decade,” delivering expedited deal closure and accelerated harvesting of post-day-one synergies which all reduce target employee integration risk.

In a world where 70 to 90% of all M&As fail to achieve strategic and financial objectives (with reasons often attributed to HR-related factors), we are here to solve issues in this hot market.
