Benefit from our expertise
Improved supply quality & reliability
Through our systematic and local supplier relationship management we keep your requirements in the forefront of the suppliers mind throughout the supply contract.
Dragon Sourcing’s end to end process and training delivers increased productivity in terms of time to re-source categories and staff per category, leading to reduced operating costs and quicker time to benefit realisation.
Reduced supply chain risk
Through our objective and rigorous sourcing process we help our clients comply with CSR requirements, international corruption legislation and increase the standards of contracted suppliers.
Economies of scale
As a Procurement Service Provider working for multiple companies, we can achieve economies of scale which a client on a standalone basis could not leverage. We accomplish this through aggregating spend across multiple customers for the same category, investing in deep category knowledge and expertise, and lastly through negotiating leverage deals with suppliers.
Increased business engagement and alignment
A key success factor for Dragon Sourcing is engaging the business stakeholders from the beginning to ensure the demand is truly understood and the sourcing model aligns to the operating model.
