Jennifer Engel, one of Source One's Senior Procurement Analysts will attend and address the American Supply Association's Fall Dinner on Monday, November 13th. This annual event has become a valued tradition for a reason. Bringing together supply chain professionals from across the Midwest, it always features impassioned discussion and expert insights from industry leaders.
Engel has years of experience helping best-in-class organizations produce cost savings in their MRO and Facilities purchasing. As a result, she possesses considerable insight into the motivations and considerations behind procurement decisions. She'll call upon her history of successful initiatives to discuss recent developments in the ever-evolving field of e-Commerce. In particular, she'll address how online transactions have affected supplier relationships and the potential threats posed by industry giants like Amazon.
Amazon Business, introduced in 2015, has quickly established itself as a rival to more traditional industrial distributors. Though Amazon offers convenience in the form of its Prime delivery services, they have yet to develop a customer service apparatus to match that of their more established competitors. Engel will take special care to discuss the value-adds that can help veteran firms not only stay competitive, but continue to outperform these emerging challengers.
