Global Marine Engineering Firm Standardizes Procurement of Temporary Crew Positions

Challenge: The sourcing team within a global marine engineering firm was challenged with standardizing its temporary personnel procurement process, specifically for crew staff for its fleet of 100 maritime vessels. As the team collected global requirements, it became clear that a number of factors would add complexity throughout the process, as there were 34 different staffing vendors with multiple compensation frameworks fulfilling the 46 crew positions utilized in 9 geographical regions.

Solution: The organization turned to SciQuest’s Advanced Sourcing Optimizer to manage the complexity of the data it needed to collect and analyze to achieve its goals for: Prioritizing security and quality of supply; Standardization of position descriptions; Consolidation of the vendor base; Standardization of compensation schedules across all vendors.

Results: The use of SciQuest ASO enabled the company to standardize vendor profiles, adopt a single compensation schedule, and rationalize their vendor base to five preferred vendors for all positions.
