Category Management

Procurement’s ongoing strategic evolution cannot continue unless the department develops a category management plan. The function must familiarize itself with the goals, objectives, and metrics of its peers within the organization. As a category expert, Procurement will engage Marketing, IT, Finance, and other units more effectively and drive greater value.

Procurement Transformation Advisory

Strategic Sourcing and Procurement teams must work in lock-step with corporate strategy. When they’re not in lock-step, procurement transformation may be in order, which requires a full-picture view of current state against desired end-state, and a comprehensive gap analysis. Beyond generic recommendations, you need a full analysis of your people, processes, and technology against your peers and industry best practices.

Corcentric has the experience to guide Strategic Sourcing and Procurement teams through these critical transformation activities.

Procurement Technology Advisory Services

The Procurement Technology landscape is a crowded and complicated one. Even seasoned supply chain professionals can find it challenging to identify solutions that will help them deliver on their business objectives. To make matters worse, many providers are leaving the consultative space. Corcentric’s Procurement Technology advisers close this gap with their end-to-end support model. We’ll assist your Procurement team in navigating the market and engaging with best-fit suppliers to produce a greater return on investment.

Supplier Relationship Management

Apart from strategic sourcing, achieving sustainable savings requires organizations to drive performance improvements, manage risk, and efficiently manage supplier relationships. Corcentric has worked with tens of thousands of suppliers to understand what is important to them in a client-supplier relationship, and brings these insights to you. To develop or refine a formal Supplier Relationship Management program, you need a partner with the right expertise, who can customize the program to your industry, requirements, and market.

Procurement Help Desk

Today’s highly strategic Procurement departments have a lot on their plates. In addition to providing support across multiple functions, they are forced to content with fluctuating demand. Traditionally, Procurement teams have turned to Business Process Outsourcing to gain additional support. Procurement’s strategic nature, however, often means that outsourcing is ineffective. Hiring Procurement resources to meet sudden surges in demand is often similarly ineffective. That’s why Corcentric introduced the Procurement Help Desk support model. Providing access to our full suite of supply chain resources for around the cost of a single hire, it provides the flexible support today’s Procurement teams need.

Cost Reduction Initiatives

“You have to spend money to make money,” so the saying goes. But securing a budget to fund a cost reduction initiative is easier said than done. Your organization shouldn’t have to worry about finding a budget to pay procurement consultants. That’s where Corcentric’s flexible payment options come in.

Corcentric’s contingency (gain sharing) cost model provides you a no-risk solution. Under our contingency model, you don’t pay until you see savings that affect your bottom line. You pay on performance, not projection. Find out more about Corcentric’s innovative Cost Reduction Initiatives.
