What Our Clients Say About Us

Our corporation never could have resourced this effort with available personnel. By outsourcing portions of our procurement cycle, we achieved savings that would not otherwise have been possible. In addition, we learned things about the marketplace and our own operations that make us better purchasers for future efforts in other areas...

John Ragazzini CFO, Spraylat Corporation

They understand and adapt to our culture instead of trying to change our culture... They understand our needs and how we go about doing things, and they are flexible to adapt to that.

Joe Hradil Former CIO, Bradco Supply Corp.

Source One Management provides the strategic sourcing and subject matter expertise necessary to tackle a variety of complex categories. They work well in a teaming environment, customizing their approach to fit the unique needs and culture of their customer rather than trying to force a rigid process onto an organization. Their staff is well trained with broad skill sets that range from spend analysis to research to negotiations and contracting. They also value the customer's relationship with their suppliers, and that is reflected in the professionalism of their interactions. The bottom line is that they make sourcing easier and help get to savings faster.

Gary Como VP, Sourcing Operations, Corporate United

The Source One Team has been a valued partner to our company as we have progressed through the initial lifecycle of a Strategic Sourcing Model. Their resources were the initial foundation for Strategic Sourcing in the company. As the internal Strategic Sourcing structure emerged, Source One’s leadership and personnel remained extremely flexible in filling key support roles within the organization, yielding positive results in key performance indicators for the Sourcing Team. When specific expertise was required to develop a supplier management program, Source One worked with us to supplement our talent base and initiate the platform. As our needs change, we know that Source One will be ready to accommodate us in the future.

Drew Sigafoos Strategic Sourcing, Otsuka America

Source One was selected as our Sourcing services provider based in large part on their depth of subject matter expertise, ability to quickly scale up/down as requirements demanded, and to blend in to our culture rather than impose their own culture. All these qualities of Source One exceeded my expectations and resulted in my Strategic Sourcing team gaining the trust of our Stakeholders and becoming a sought after, value-added business partner.

Wray Myers Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Leader

Source One continues to be an innovator in the procurement process. They manage in various corporate cultures and environments with a passion for market intelligence. They do this for all of their engagements and items of expenditure.
