PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - Intesource, the leader in eSourcing for grocers, retailers and restaurants, has been named to the 2016 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for a fourth straight year. The award recognizes Intesource for its consultative, managed approach to sourcing and sustained success in enabling its customers to achieve substantial business value through a smart, holistic procurement performance.
Intesource was recognized for the Top 100 for partnering with one of America's largest companies to increase efficiency and effectiveness in every step of the procurement process. By helping the internal procurement team see the bigger picture and get a better understanding of the products, prices and contract terms available to them, the company is able to make quick, confident sourcing decisions that create value that ties directly back to their business goals.
"Identifying product specifications and obtaining pricing information from vendors can be very daunting and time consuming, especially for large companies that have a wide spread of spend categories," said Brian Miller, vice president of services at Intesource. "A smart sourcing approach can reduce the time required to manage this process, opening teams up to focus on strategic objectives. We find this to be extremely valuable for teams as it can fuel change initiatives that positively influence the organization for years to come."
By conducting supplier research, identifying new, viable categories to take to auction and recommending proven strategies for each, Intesource takes the bulk of heavy lifting off of internal teams' plates while simultaneously acting as a strategic advisor. Over the past two years, the organization has generated more than $115.5M in value and saved well over 500 hours with this unique managed sourcing approach. Specific savings numbers that showcase the sustainability of this twelve years of partnership together include 31 percent on construction and remodeling services, 30 percent on floor care services, 25 percent on waste removal, 22 percent on product spotlights, and 20 percent on material handling.
The Supply and Demand Chain Executive (S&DCE) 100 is an annual list of great supply chain projects that have driven successful, innovative transformation and bottom-line value for companies.
