Procuri’s Supply Strategy #3 Webinar:

Advanced Sourcing Strategies: Expanding Sourcing Success

February 15, 2007: 11:30 am to 12:30 pm EST

Strategic sourcing provides the greatest and most direct lever for controlling costs and managing performance across the supply chain. With globalization and outsourcing on the rise and supply markets tightening, strategic sourcing has become a must-have competency for enterprises of all sizes and industries.

Many enterprises have tested Web-based negotiation technologies, such as reverse auction and e-RFx tools, reporting double-digit cost savings, halving sourcing cycles, and improving overall productivity and process standardization.

However, many early approaches and solutions were too feature-narrow and price-focused to drive sustained results. As a result, supply management groups are looking to build upon their success by adopting advanced sourcing approaches and broader e-sourcing suites.
