Fortune 500 CPG Company Enhances Supply Innovation Throughout E-Sourcing Process

Challenge: Our client is a Fortune 500 CPG company with a shared-services Procurement and Sourcing team that supports the sourcing activities of dozens of global brands and business units representing a large percentage of the company's spend. As the team increased its spend under management, they found that their existing ERP and procurement tools were not adequate to meet their e-sourcing needs. They required a solution that could more effectively support strategic spend areas with robust features, yet speed and simplify their workload.

Solution: The team adopted the advanced sourcing tool CombineNet ASAP in early 2010 to more quickly and easily support a range of spend areas in direct and indirect categories.

Results: As a result, the client reports a 20% productivity increase, savings of up to 45% in certain spend areas, and supply innovation supported through the e-sourcing process.

CombineNet's ASAP product (Advanced Sourcing Application Platform) is an optimization-driven Software as a Service solution that helps our global customers make the best possible supplier and spend decisions on all categories of products and services, based on their unique business requirements.
