Right now in Phoenix, AZ, industry leaders are celebrating 100 years for the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) - sharing best practices, getting new perspectives, networking, and having a collective experience about this exciting time in supply chain, sourcing, and procurement. The ISM2015 Annual Conference is an important event for an always-important business function. (Procurement, Supply chain, and sourcing have always been important...it's just that the awareness of their importance is increasing throughout other departments of an organization). Here we are almost mid-year, and the summer heat is closing in. It's time to take a breath and ask ourselves, "Are we meeting our spend management goals and objectives?"
Maybe you are, maybe you're not. Maybe you didn't have goals. Maybe you had goals but they turned out not to be attainable. Maybe there was any number of other happenings in your business that took priority. It happens. It's natural.
But at the same time, you can't afford to be complacent. You know that even if you have good sourcing processes and practices in place, they aren't enough to ensure a YOY return and truly sustain a competitive edge. They're the foundation, to be sure, but one that is meant to be built upon.
That's where a multi-disciplinary procurement services provider, like Source One comes in - bringing you a whole host of approaches for enhancing your sourcing, procurement, and supply chain operations. Need to find opportunities to innovate? We've got some approaches for you to consider. Need to look at alternatives for outsourcing? Yup, we have that, too.
Alright, alright. I'll let you see for yourself. Head on over to our Services page to see more.
