Count on Corcentric to assess the supply base, manage the strategic sourcing process, oversee short- and long-term projects, and provide for ongoing spend management – whatever your organization’s internal Procurement resources and capabilities.

Marketing

Marketing and Procurement don’t always see eye-to-eye. Bridge the gap between the functions and empower them to empower one another with insights from Corcentric’s experienced Category Management experts.

IT + Telecom

Your technology keeps your organization running and an effective category strategy can make the difference between taking the business to a new level or breaking the bank on the wrong set of tools. Corcentric can help you make the most of every IT and Telecom purchase.

Logistics

Logistics isn’t like most other spend categories. It’s directly tied to your business operations and requires a unique, forward-thinking approach. Corcentric equips you to approach the category strategically and obtain great pricing without sacrificing service levels.

Human Resources

A more strategic approach to HR spend not only means smarter purchasing for all the department’s essentials. In the long term, it could mean attracting better talent, retaining world-class talent longer, and building a reputation as an organization with an innovative approach to managing its people. Corcentric can help you get there.

Maintenance, Repair,
and Operations

Taking a tactical, decentralized approach to MRO sourcing and purchasing often leaves your organization settling for inferior service levels and leaving money on the table. Bring the category under management with insights and hands-on support from the team at Corcentric.
