Procurement and Sourcing

In today’s increasingly globalized world, we work to ensure that product and material sourcing is completed with ease and efficiency. Our supply chain management team assists in creating contacts globally to provide the most value to organizations in the procurement process. We rapidly assess the current maturity of product sourcing and tracing initiatives in your organization and recommend specific supply chain improvement-focused initiatives to both reach tracing and sourcing goals and enhance design and measurement.

Our Approach

Our team works to create and implement the best organizational outsourcing strategy to deliver your competitive advantage and reduce costs. This allows your organization to focus on pressing local initiatives. Meanwhile, our supply chain management team also provides assurance of minimal business disruption and conflict with external vendors and organizations through extensive research, analysis and constructive communication.

We work with your team to understand your internal business structures and overall strategic goals to identify improvement opportunities that are aligned with your business and that address the root causes of your challenges. Our procurement and sourcing experts work to understand your current state, then help your company streamline processes, reduce raw material prices and costs, and identify better sources of supply to reduce your bottom line and achieve future state goals

Procurement and Sourcing Service Offerings

The Poirier Group’s procurement expertise includes work in the following strategic and operational areas

Vendor Management

Reducing your organization’s costs through strategic planning and research.

We will help you research and choose the best vendors based on pricing, quality of work and relationship management, taking into consideration number of vendors needed, location and other business needs. We will then work with you to set organizational standards for your business and execute a payment schedule.

When doing this manually becomes too much, we will work with you to implement or custom create a vendor management tool to manage vendor related activities. This can help you control cost and reduce vendor risk. We want you to derive maximum value from your vendors, creating a mutually beneficial relationship with long-term savings.

Sustainable Sourcing & Product Traceability

We work to rapidly assess the current maturity of product sourcing and tracing initiatives in your organization and recommend specific supply chain improvement-focused initiatives to both reach tracing and sourcing goals and enhance design and measurement

Supplier Relationship Management

We will explore ways of creating more effective and efficient alliances/connections with key suppliers and work through ways to capitalize on them. We then establish best practices for dealing with suppliers to increase effectiveness 

Supplier relationships impact multiple functions across your business including in-stock performance, quality of goods and services, technology “fit”, price competitiveness based on cost performance, customer facing capabilities, and much more. In short, supplier performance (timeliness, cycle time of implementation, responsiveness, knowledge contribution, cost/price, etc.) has a huge impact, directly and indirectly, on your performance with both your customers and employees.
