Sourcing Optimization & Procurement

Enhance Supplier Optionality, Reduce Risk, Improve EBITDA, Service & Quality

Sourcing Optimization Approach

SGS Maine Pointe's sourcing optimization implements our rigorous six-step procurement process to achieve measurable improvements not only in cost but also quality, service, speed to market and risk.

Sourcing optimization leverages SGS-Maine Pointe’s data analytics, strategic procurement, leader & organization improvement and industry supply chain subject matter expertise.

This includes a detailed process of spend profiling to enable category specific cross- functional teams (SGS- MP & client) and breaking through functional silos and transforming procurement into a high value strategic procurement function.

We employ a rigorous baseline and evaluation process to ensure the client can track the achievement of the savings/benefits and install a procurement management operating system (PMOS) to ensure they continue to drive sustainable realization, as part of our part of our Total Value Optimization™ approach to value creation.
