40 WMS selection tips to help you find the perfect software
Software selection projects are typically long and tedious processes, and any individual that has had to be responsible for reviewing RFP responses, vendor demos, and stakeholder meetings can appreciate suggestions for making the process more efficient. Senior Consultant Torey Guingrich and other industry experts offer their advice in this extensive list of tips for the WMS selection tips. Guingrich suggests considering both existing and future warehouse requirements, creating a WMS vendor shortlist with practical considerations, and including all key stakeholders input on the RFP.

Strategic Sourcing Throughout the Product Lifecycle Q&A
Direct Materials Sourcing Expert Martin Przeworski offers his perspective on sourcing throughout the product lifecycle in this recent Q&A. Based on his experience, Przeworski provides examples for how sourcing and procurement groups can create value in every stage of the product lifecycle. These professionals possess the market intelligence, ability to engage suppliers and cost-reducing methods that can be applied beginning to end of the product lifecycle, not just when looking to cut spend during the manufacturing stage. Further insights on this topic are available in Source One's most recent whitepaper Strategic Sourcing Throughout the Product Lifecycle: Balancing Competitive Costs with Innovation & Speed to Market.

Today is the last day of ISM Tech 2017!

Over the last few days, attendees have had the opportunity to hear from industry experts as they presented educational sessions focused on technology and all the options available to take business operations to the next level. The informative conference delivered excellent insights into the best practices for identifying, sourcing, and implementing performance boosting technology and software.

Industry professionals around the world are looking forward to the highly anticipated international conference hosted by the Institute for Supply Management in May. Over 2,500 global supply chain and procurement professionals come together for four full days of presentations, networking opportunities, and educational sessions that allow attendees to work with experts in the supply chain and procurement industry. As the exclusive sponsor of ExecIn, a sub-conference at ISM2017 designed specifically for supply management leaders, Source One prepared a schedule that attendees can anticipate as an opportunity to reevaluate their business operations and existing procurement processes with the support of best in class procurement experts.

The Source One team looks ahead to SYNERGY national conference in this summer. Baltimore, Maryland hosts the first conference in June, where local procurement professionals can collaborate with other experts in their industry on a smaller scale in anticipation of the national conference. As a Gold Sponsor for these Road to SYNERGY events, Source One's procurement experts are looking forward to connecting with attendees and sharing more information on our cost reduction services.
