Strategic Sourcing

In many businesses the secret to lower costs, improved profits, better managed supplier relationships and a more competitive operation lies in the supply chain.

Our flexible Services provide clients with sourcing initiatives, which rapidly produce best-in-market pricing, quality and delivery. Clients often leverage and Track Savings from Strategic Sourcing initiatives as a means to fund other operational improvement projects.

Cost Reduction Programs

In many businesses the answer to lower costs, improved profits and a more competitive operation lies in the procurement of direct and indirect materials or services. In recent years, organizations have taken a fresh look at procurement activities - even beyond the procurement organization - to unleash potential value from strategic sourcing initiatives.

emptum has developed a proven, strategic sourcing methodology providing a full spectrum of services from spend analysis to ongoing vendor management. Our flexible solution rapidly produces best-in-market pricing, quality and delivery in over 100 commodity areas.

Spend Analysis

emptum's Procurement & Supply Services includes a comprehensive data collection and analysis effort aimed at providing visibility to spend data and identifying purchasing related opportunities.

We quantify savings opportunities based on our proprietary market knowledge, internal benchmarks and current market forces. Annual bottom-line benefits are projected for areas that present the greatest potential.

Vendor Identification & Selection

Based upon our best-practices we deliver a list of key potential suppliers that currently manufacturer products or deliver services according to desired specifications from our clients.

RFI & RFQ processing

RFI (Request For Information): to complete requirements definition or to pre-qualify potential bidders, we will develop & distribute a comprehensive RFI & perform results analysis.

RFQ (Request For Quotation): is known for preparing concise, professional and extremely effective RFQ packages. Our packages paint an appropriate emotional picture for bidders, transition quotation information quickly for analysis and address pertinent legal issues to facilitate timely execution of resulting contracts.

Vendor Negotiations

emptum brings deep expertise in performing structured vendor selections and fact-based negotiations. We provide you the information necessary to evaluate and analyze existing and potential vendor relationships and determine the appropriate negotiating terms. Armed with information, you are properly positioned to negotiate to best meet your needs.

Track Savings

It is important for organizations to track savings as they materialize. To do so, emptum can create a "saving tracking calculator" that highlights savings on a monthly basis. Your organization's performance is summarized on a dashboard report for key executive review.

Rather then provide one-time savings, we help you leverage process, organizational structures and technology tools to provide a long-term, sustainable solution. By incorporating the emptum approach into ongoing strategies, our clients consistently report solid improvements within their strategic sourcing initiatives and often leverage savings to fund other improvement projects.
