ISM2016 Recap: Day One
The most anticipated supply chain event of the year happened this past week! ISM2016 kicked off celebrating the future of supply management at Thomasnet's and The Institute for Supply Management's 30 Under 30 Reception. Thomasnet caught up with Source One's 30 Under 30, Michael Croasdale. When asked about his advice for young professionals interested in a career in procurement, Croasdale shared, “You have to work hard but my advice to them is, if you put your nose to the grindstone, you’re going to get where you want to get,”.
Croasdale, Source One's MRO Category Expert, was recognized for his innovative implementation of a preferred vendor program for a construction client. Croasdale designed an ordering guide leveraging Google Earth that allowed purchasers to find suppliers based on their proximity to the job site. In addition to producing over $1M with the new program, the client also saved time and transportation costs through the new ordering guide.
