Previously, our company culture believed that transportation & logistics was just the cost of doing business. Now, we understand that this is an area that can be used to drive differentiation vs. our competition and is an area that can generate significant year over year savings. Thanks to nSource Advisors, we now focus on logistics as a part of our strategic planning process.
There have been huge improvements made in global logistics thanks to nSource Advisors. They were professionals who worked well with our management team, laying out logical business cases, and implementing on schedule and above target. We are excited to see annual cost reductions moving forward and being able to reallocate that savings into new equipment and products.
nSource Advisors has really impressed our leadership team and consistently beat our expectations. We didn't know that logistics could drive such value to the organization. nSource has really transformed how we look at the supply chain.
nSource Advisors provided leadership and training on category management and strategic sourcing; as well as hands-on support of our team in the application of their methodologies and analytical tools. Their rigorous approach to overall transformation helped institutionalize the process for implementing new initiatives within our company. I would not hesitate to re-engage the nSource team if the need and opportunity were to present itself once again.
Utilizing strong process discipline, nSource Advisors worked hand in hand with us to identify and implement supply chain improvements and launch our first Supply Chain organization. They were involved in all aspects of the transformation from developing the organizational structure to on-boarding and training new employees. It is remarkable to see not only the results, but also the transformation of our organization in such a short time.
The multi-category strategic sourcing engagement with nSource Advisors was enlightening and rewarding. The consultants that I worked with had great category knowledge and always pushed the envelope to build more rigor, transparency, and discipline into the process. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with them again in the future as opportunities arise.
