Three Major Cost Savings Beyond Price Elements for Your Purchased Services Program

Most organizations look at purchased services only from a contract price standpoint to the value provided by the vendor. This keeps the negotiations and transactional aspects of the vendor relationship very simple in the purchased services side of supply chain. Now with group purchasing having valued contracts in the purchased services space, this only enhances the contract price savings for supply chain professionals. I guess this means our job is done with purchased services, right? Or are there still major dollars being left on the table? The answer is yes, because you can still look beyond price to save even more, and you don’t have to wait until the contract renewal process to go after these savings.
