A History of Delivering Procurement Excellence from the Original Procurement Services Provider
In 2017, Source One Celebrated Our 25th Anniversary Of Delivering Procurement Excellence
In 1992, Source One’s procurement consultants set out to help companies reduce costs and optimize supply management operations. In those days, procurement groups functioned largely as reactive purchasing teams. We aimed to change that by introducing companies to the benefit of a more strategic approach to sourcing and procurement – through our strategic sourcing and procurement transformation services.
Though we first made our name with IT and Telecom, and MRO purchasing, we quickly learned our strategic sourcing principles could produce savings across every indirect spend category – we even wrote the book on it! We’ve seen countless procurement technologies and services providers come and go, but we’re still standing strong, as the oldest consulting firm to focus solely on strategic sourcing and procurement. Check out this brief video to learn how we’ve grown as an industry leader – a procurement services provider backed by technology.
In 2012, Source One Celebrated 20 Years Of Savings and Supply Chain Chain Excellence
Before the internet was commercialized, when cordless phones and the Apple II were brand new, company procurement departments depended on supplier sales personnel and historical data to determine their purchasing practices. Founded in 1992, Source One offered buyers a new approach to buying the products and services they needed by offering unique market intelligence to help level the playing field.
