Munich, Germany, June 28, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The integrated SAaaS®-Model combines expert advice across the whole lifecycle of the sourcing agreement, with automation through the use of optimized tools - the pliXos’s “Global Sourcing Platform.” It ensures highest levels of effectiveness and efficiency at all stages.
This pliXos offering “Sourcing Advisory as a Service” includes all consulting services needed to answer the strategic questions raised during the sourcing life-cycle as well as during the support in contract negotiations and mediation with suppliers or the advice for organization design and change management. Furthermore, the online tools of the Global Sourcing Platform allow automation and standardization in each step of the sourcing-life-cycle leading to higher efficiency, speed as well as transparency. Among other things, this includes the tool supporting business case analysis, the tender process, vendor selection as well as supporting the transition period followed by assisting the ongoing governance of the project underway. Unlike a typical consulting assignment, SAaaS® can be set up at every stage of the outsourcing-life-cycles and it does not end because a one-off budget is already spent. In addition, through permanent availability of advisory support, the client can react at any time to changes in the sourcing process.
Joerg Stimmer, MD of pliXos, explains: “The combination of our innovative tools with expert advice from sourcing consultants allows customers to build on the accumulated know-how of pliXos as well as others while minimizing costs. The SAaaS®- model makes the outsourcing-advice not only more efficient but also more transparent for our clients. Furthermore, automation and standardization allow shorter project steps in the sourcing-life-cycle plus increased quality and compliance in each phase.”
Mr. Hartmut Jaeger, responsible for Strategic Sourcing Advisory at HDP Management Consulting GmbH and jointly responsible for the development of SAaaS®, considers this innovative offer a big opportunity for clients and for suppliers to improve sourcing-agreements in a sustainable way: “The increasing pace of change in the markets is forcing clients and suppliers to react even more quickly and to adapt the sourcing-agreements. SAaaS® provides an efficient, neutral and readily available assistance in any situation at extremely favorable cost, thereby strengthening the own organization.”
