Major US Retailer's eSourcing Solution Exceeds 50% ROI through Decentralization

Challenge: Adopt a solution that can be easily rolled out to buyer and category manager desktops throughout the organization, plus scale across other departments in the enterprise.

Solution: Launch live eSourcing events: Onboard 7 sourcing teams in 4 months towards savings and process efficiencies, and also establishing a repository of standardized, category-specific sourcing templates for future re-use. Consolidate and replace multiple solutions into one standard, efficient process allowing for improved knowledge management and collaboration, as well as better negotiations and supplier evaluations throughout the organization.

Results: The initial events were completed in 13 days and resulted in 24% savings when the start price and the lowest qualified bid were compared. In less than 4 months, the retailer’s sourcing teams have run over 50 events to successfully ramp up their eSourcing activity and program, achieving 50% ROI in the first quarter.
