Market Intelligence Study – Assessing and Streamlining the Sourcing and Procurement Process

May 20, 2017

The latest procurement market intelligence study by SpendEdge on the sourcing and procurement process for a leading technology company helps streamline the sourcing and procurement process for major spend areas and provides on-going support to its category managers.

Sourcing and procurement – market at a glance

Procurement focuses on the logistics of acquiring materials whereas sourcing is to find the best and cost-effective suppliers for the resources. Striking a perfect balance between sourcing and procurement will lead to a successful service delivery. With sourcing playing a key role in the procurement process, market intelligence experts recommends setting up strategic sourcing and procurement groups to achieve a streamlined supply chain operation. Using technology as a tool will help organizations ensure efficient structure in their workflow and process systems. Productive sourcing and procurement functions will help companies define, measure, and raise their performance to match the competition in the market.

Growing demand for automation in the sourcing and procurement process is encouraging companies to adopt innovative technologies. Organizations are using advanced software technologies to automate sourcing activities such as invoice processing, supplier evaluation, supplier-bidding, supplier negotiation, supplier selection, and other sourcing related activities. Automation will help reduce manual errors, costs, and offer visibility in the end-to-end supply chain management systems.

Domain specific sourcing and procurement services

The market intelligence study addresses issues related to specific domains in an organization such as MRO, facilities, IT, and marketing-related spend areas. Obtaining information on industry best practices regarding how these categories are managed by best-in-class market players will help improve the overall process effectiveness of the company. Moreover, analyzing the current category sourcing and procurement strategies will allow enterprises to make well-informed business decisions.
