Strategic Sourcing and Supply Chain Management

Success in today’s global marketplace requires new strategies, and new capabilities.  Companies are under continuous pressure to reduce costs, even as they need to leverage suppliers to drive innovation and growth.  This volatile and dynamic environment creates new challenges, but also new opportunities.

At Vantage Partners, we advise chief procurement officers, lead supply chain transformation initiatives, support development of category strategies, design and implement supplier relationship management programs, advise on high-stakes supplier negotiations, and provide a range of training solutions to procurement leaders and professionals.

Vantage leverages unique expertise in strategic sourcing, negotiation, supply chain operations, supplier relationship management, and change management to help companies develop and implement innovative approaches to negotiating with, and collaborating with, suppliers — and to enhance collaboration between procurement and internal business partners.   As a result, we have helped clients achieve hundreds of millions of dollars in bottom line savings and incremental revenue.
