Strategic sourcing is the core of cost optimisation. Yet procurement departments may lack resources, category knowledge or the optimal processes to deliver the best outcome.

Ayming has developed a structured, 4-step approach to strategic sourcing that ensures you procure the optimal solution in terms of cost, service and quality.
