Sourcing & Logistics

Sourcing success materially impacts an increasingly higher percent of a company’s competitive cost and capabilities advantages.

Our clients realize that sourcing is much more than sending out an RFP and squeezing vendors for improved pricing. The decision to outsource is not one that should be made hastily due to the potential organizational impact, the risk of business disruption, and the high cost of failure.

We work closely with clients to execute an objective, transparent and efficient sourcing process to enhance profitability and achieve long-term operational improvements.
