The SDCE 100 spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that are delivering bottom-line value
ATLANTA, Georgia – June 15, 2014 – Insight Sourcing Group announced today that it has been named to the 2014 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for the seventh consecutive year. The SDCE 100 shines a spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that are delivering bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain.
The customer project that earned Insight Sourcing Group’s place on the prestigious list was their work with Aaron’s Inc., a $2.2 billion specialty retailer of residential and office furniture, consumer electronics, home appliances and accessories that operates more than 2,000 stores in the US and Canada. Aaron’s finance team was tasked with optimizing costs, but lacked a centralized, strategic procurement function to identify and achieve savings. Insight Sourcing Group was engaged to perform a spend assessment to identify opportunistic categories, quantify savings potential, and develop sourcing strategies.
Additionally, Insight Sourcing Group deployed its proprietary spend visibility tool, SpendHQ®, to continually track and monitor savings following completion of sourcing campaign. Projects by supply chain solution and service providers’ were chosen for helping customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence in terms of ambitiousness/scope, creative application of technologies/solutions/services used, and extent of business results/impact.
