Strategic Sourcing

Learn how Corbus can optimize your strategic sourcing process by implementing strategic sourcing best practices.

Strategic sourcing is an institutional procurement process in which the procedures, methods, and sources are constantly re-evaluated to optimize value. The strategic sourcing process extends beyond price negotiations and takes into account the total cost of ownership (TCO) further extended to total value of ownership (TVO) analysis. Strategic sourcing requires you to continually analyze specifications, supply market analysis, demand drivers, inventory practices, corporate policies, value addition analysis, internal procurement processes, and strategic sourcing best practices. Corporate procurement leaders are challenged to optimize their supply chain and control/reduce operating costs. At Corbus, our approach to the strategic sourcing process is continually evolving. We focus on your company’s operations, industry, changes/challenges in the market, and global supplier network. We utilize internally developed strategic sourcing best practices acquired by our sourcing experts and relationships with our global clients and suppliers.
