Willow Grove, PA (May 16, 2017) – Premier indirect spend management consultancy Source One Management Services is proud to share its sponsorship of group purchasing organization Corporate United’s The Road to SYNERGY events. The two-part regional event series takes place in Baltimore, Maryland on June 6th and Dallas, Texas on August 15th. Modeled as smaller-scale versions of Corporate United’s bi-annual SYNERGY conference, the regional events aim to provide current and prospective GPO member attendees with the latest strategies for driving spend visibility, cost reduction, and compliance in a more intimate setting than the traditional industry tradeshow.

Kicking off in Baltimore Maryland, supply management professionals are set to gather for a full agenda of informative sessions and networking opportunities designed to deliver actionable career development advice, procurement best practices, and category management solutions. Source One’s spend management consultants are looking forward to connecting with attendees, as Corporate United’s exclusive provider of Telecom strategic sourcing, to offer tips and insights for reining in this challenging spend category. The Road to SYNERGY events offer a prime opportunity for supply management professionals looking to reduce telecom costs to connect with Source One’s experts to discuss the potentially hidden savings within telecom spend.

With a wide range of indirect spend management expertise, the IT and Telecom spend categories have been a specialty for the procurement consultants at Source One, currently celebrating their 25th Anniversary as a procurement services provider: “In our decades as a strategic sourcing and procurement services provider, we’ve observed a shift in how leading-edge companies prioritize procurement. Supply management and purchasing have moved away from a traditional reactive measure to more proactive functions, requiring companies to seek new strategies and options for managing indirect spend in a way that truly fits their unique organizational needs,” explains VP of Operations, William Dorn. ” A Group Purchasing Organization model, particularly the robust Corporate United offering, is an obvious asset for those buyers and sourcing managers looking to enhance their buying power across a multitude of spend categories.”

The Road to SYNERGY – Baltimore, is one event of many Source One’s cost reduction experts are attending this season.  This month, Source One’s spend management experts return to the Institute for Supply Management Annual Conference as Diamond Sponsors and exclusive sponsors of the executive-only subconference, Exec In.  Members of the team are also featured speakers, panelists, and moderators of sessions throughout the four-day event on topics related to millennial supply chain talent, procurement analytics, and unique cost reduction strategies.

Also this spring, Senior Analyst Matthieu Chabanon will lend his strategic sourcing and indirect spend management insight during the 2017 Plastics Financial Summit, presenting a session titled, The New Frontier: Harnessing Indirect Spend Optimize Manufacturing Operations.
