Our Services

END-TO-END PROCUREMENT CONSULTING IS OUR SPECIALTY

Procurement Consulting is what SSI does best. Since 2008, we have performed numerous sourcing projects with consistently high ROIs for our clients, and we can do it for virtually any significant expenditure area in any industry.

At SSI, our team of professionals have what it takes to get a variety of jobs done right thanks to their vast hands-on experience. First, our experts will work with you to analyze your company’s unique situation in order to gain a complete understanding of your supply chain. Then, we will identify the best suppliers and negotiate the best possible agreements, with an eye toward cost, quality, service and other specialty factors. If you have “hard to change” suppliers, our experienced team will access your agreements and renegotiate your contracts if needed to capture best-in-market pricing and terms. Of course, we will work with integrity and fairness during our renegotiation process in order to preserve, and possibly even enhance, your supplier relationships.

After helping you identify valuable opportunity in your company’s sourcing strategy, you can count on our team to customize solutions that work specifically for your needs. Then, SSI will assist in coordinating and executing these results-driven procurement strategies across a diverse array of global markets using our international network of trusted suppliers. As a result, your company can expect to see improved product margins and lower inventory costs. Simply put, SSI has the knowledgeable experts, deep experience and reliable resources necessary to consistently deliver the right goods to the right place at the right time—all at the very best possible price.

SSI SAVINGS-TARGET SOURCING MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

In the emerging global goods markets, SSI offers trusted savings-target sourcing that is beyond compare. For starters, our innovative business systems combined with years of hands-on industry knowledge allow our sourcing engineers to ensure that all orders are handled by established suppliers, and all goods they ship are of the highest quality and the best price available. In this Internet age where anyone can throw up a storefront, it is of the upmost importance to know which suppliers can be trusted for their reliability, and perhaps more importantly which ones cannot.
