Sourcing and Supplier Management
Success in today’s global marketplace requires new strategies, and new capabilities. Companies are under increasing pressure to reduce supply costs even as they need to leverage suppliers to drive innovation. Meanwhile, the risks to consumer safety and corporate reputation of poorly managed supply chains are increasingly evident. This volatile and dynamic environment creates new challenges, but also new opportunities.
In response, procurement and supply chain organizations need to improve cross-functional collaboration within their own companies, develop and pursue innovative negotiation strategies, and lead efforts to build and sustain collaborative partnerships with key suppliers.
At Vantage, we leverage our unique expertise in negotiation, relationship management, and change management to help sourcing and supply chain executives and their teams develop and implement innovative approaches to negotiating with, and collaborating with, suppliers — and with internal business partners. As a result, we have helped clients achieve hundreds of millions of dollars in bottom line savings and incremental revenue.
