London, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/16/2012 -- A sourcing strategy allows a company to continuously evaluate and improve their purchasing activities. It is a powerful procurement strategy that can not only reduces costs, but significantly enhance business value, mitigate operational risk and shorten the ‘go-to-market’ time.
But according to award winning sourcing and outsourcing strategy advisors, Elix-IRR, the outsourcing industry is dominated by a select group of international providers, with minimal practical implementation experience.
“Whilst the major strategy houses have the ability to create theory based reports, they often lack practical implementation experience,” said a spokesman for Elix-IRR, whom have won multiple awards for their expert consultation services, including New Company of the Year in 2011 as well as being selected for inclusion in the list of the top 20 world’s best outsourcing advisors for 2012.
“Procurement advisors are predominantly focused on the specific transaction, and the Audit-based advisory firms are often more interested in selling a wide range of other services. But at Elix-IRR we offer an impartial end-to-end strategic sourcing and outsourcing advisory service that combines all the required expertise into a single, all encompassing solution.”
This approach by Elix-IRR enables the company to assist clients across the entire sourcing life-cycle, from creating the initial business and operating strategy, all the way through to implementation and then review and optimisation of the deal.
According to Elix-IRR, the close link between the sourcing strategy and the operating model is what adds real business value to clients.
“We do not merely follow a procurement process. Our sourcing strategies have a clear purpose and business case. It is not just about cutting costs, but about creating real business value,” said a company spokesperson.
