“We started working with Insight Sourcing Group four years ago with a small pilot program in a single division. They quickly proved themselves as experts in procurement and analytics. Today they lead procurement projects in all of our divisions, delivering significant value and savings. They recently led cross-subsidiary sourcing projects by using sophisticated analytics to consolidate spend among our broad product offerings. In each case, the projects were a tremendous success. We consider them an extension of our team. They are highly regarded by our senior executives and are considered a strategic partner.”

I highly recommend them.”

“After acquiring one of our largest competitors, Taylor engaged Insight Sourcing Group to lead the post-merger integration and procurement synergy capture effort. After analyzing our combined spend stack, they were able to identify major savings opportunities in a timely manner and in alignment with our financial expectations.”
“Insight Sourcing Group’s spend analytics tool—SpendHQ—is highly intuitive and easy to use and has a unique ‘sourcing professional’s perspective.’ It gives us the answers we need without the complexity. We use it on a daily basis to identify sourcing and compliance opportunities and to manage vendor relationships. I highly recommend it.”

“I highly recommend the Energy Practice at Insight Sourcing Group. We contracted with them to perform a utility bill audit of our electric, natural gas, water and sewer spend across our multi-state footprint. ISG Energy’s deep-dive resulted in 9% of realized savings across all utility cost categories. Additionally, they assisted with utility contract negotiations and monitored savings implementations to ensure the achievement of maximum savings.
ISG Energy has truly been a partner in increasing our business profitability.”

“We joined Insight Sourcing Group’s Office Supplies Consortium in 2011, which initially covered only our North American locations. Once we saw the significant savings the consortia program helped us achieve—and how we were able to monitor the savings and communicate the results to other business units—we extended the program globally to include our locations in Europe and other parts of the world. The program’s robust contracted pricing list helps us further maximize savings.”
