Source One’s Strategic Sourcing Experts Demonstrate Procurement’s Value at Upcoming Industry Events
Philadelphia, PA, October 13, 2016 --( Leading procurement consultancy, Source One Management Services, LLC is preparing for an exciting fourth quarter. The firm’s strategic sourcing thought leaders and spend management experts will be featured speakers on Procurement Transformation, Metrics, and Reporting at two upcoming industry events: the Next Level Purchasing Association (NLPA) Annual Conference and Worldwide Business Research’s ProcureCon Pharma 2016.

Both presentations will explore the true value that Procurement and Strategic Sourcing deliver to the businesses they serve, and how purchasing organizations must communicate that value to gain buy-in from stakeholders. During the NLPA Conference and ProcureCon Pharma, Source One’s procurement transformation experts will shed light on the improvements that can be made within a sourcing department’s current approach to talent management, procurement processes, and tools to help build a platform and foster relationships with key executive and category stakeholders.

"Our goal is enable Procurement to achieve that trusted advisor status by fully realizing and demonstrating the value they deliver," explains Associate Director Jennifer Ulrich and featured speaker at the NLPA Annual Conference. "For our clients, we do so by holistically assessing their procurement function and establishing the tools, talent management protocols, and processes necessary to enhance their supply management operations. During these upcoming sessions, we’ll be sharing elements of our approach so the delegates can ultimately walk away with actionable recommendations that will challenge the traditional perspective of Procurement and establish better relationships with their stakeholders."

Experts from the procurement and strategic sourcing firm are frequent guest speakers at industry events, sharing insights at several Procurement and Supply Management events this year alone, such as the annual conferences for the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) and for the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) – where Source One was twice-honored for its emerging supply chain leaders.

These events add to an already busy fourth quarter for the Cost Reduction and Procurement Services firm. Earlier this month, Source One launched its Spend Analysis as a Service web platform,, which offers an alternative to complex spend analytics software implementations and makes it easy for companies to gain spend visibility and achieve their cost reduction goals. Also this October, Source One rolled out a new design and mobile-enhanced platform for its always-popular Supply Chain, Procurement, and Strategic Sourcing Blog, Next month, the leading spend management consultancy will be hosting a Procurement Professionals Networking event in Chicago’s River North section to commemorate the second anniversary of its very successful Midwest Strategic Sourcing office.
