Needs Assessment

Our consultant will start by conducting a thorough assessment of your company’s procurement needs and objectives. This includes understanding your specific requirements, budget constraints, and any existing supplier relationships.

Market Research

After identifying your needs, our expert will conduct comprehensive market research to identify potential suppliers, product options, and current market conditions. This helps in benchmarking prices and assessing the competitive landscape.

Supplier Identification

Based on market research, our consultant will identify and shortlist potential suppliers who can meet your requirements and deliver the best value for your company. As our purchasing consultants have a lot of experience in this field, you can expect the best price for the products you source through them.

Supplier Evaluation

The purchasing consultants of our company will carefully evaluate potential suppliers using various criteria such as cost, quality, reliability, lead times, and compliance with industry standards. They may also perform supplier audits if necessary. This will ensure that you get the best bang for your buck when you source goods.

Negotiation Strategy

Dragon Sourcing’s purchasing consultant can also help you develop a negotiation strategy that aligns with your company’s goals. They will negotiate terms and conditions with suppliers to secure the most favorable agreements. As they have domain knowledge, they can quickly find you the best deal by leveraging their extensive supplier contacts.

Cost Analysis

Highly professional consultants will perform a detailed cost analysis, including total cost of ownership (TCO) calculations. This involves assessing not only the initial purchase price but also factors like shipping, taxes, customs, and ongoing maintenance costs. They will give you a detailed breakdown of the costs involved in your sourcing strategy, which you can tweak with their help to gain a maximum price advantage.

Contract Development

Once negotiations are successful, our consultant will draft contracts that clearly outline the terms and conditions, including pricing, delivery schedules, quality standards, and dispute resolution mechanisms. This will ensure that all parties are fully aware of their roles in the contract.

Supplier Relationship Management

Post-contract, we can assist in ongoing supplier relationship management. This may involve performance monitoring, conflict resolution, and ensuring that the supplier continues to meet your company’s requirements. Regular engagement with your supplier through our purchasing consultant can increase the sustainability and reliability of your supply chain, as it helps you forge long-term relationships with them.

Quality Control and Inspection

To maintain product quality, consultants may implement inspection and quality control processes, ensuring that the products delivered meet your specifications and standards.

Risk Management

Risks related to the supply chain, such as geopolitical unrest, natural catastrophes, or regulatory changes, are identified and minimized with the assistance of our knowledgeable consultants. They may suggest risk mitigation strategies. This will help increase the robustness of your supply chain and help you withstand supply chain shocks by investing in alternate supply options.
