Five reasons Alsbridge will make a REAL difference as your sourcing advisor
1. We are in the market every day – we don’t dabble in sourcing
The outsourcing landscape is complex enough to navigate due to the ever expanding list of suppliers, locations and service offerings. You can’t afford to have your advisors learn at your expense. Because we deal with the market on a daily basis, we know all the outsourcing players – what they can offer, what works and what doesn’t.
2. We recognise that every client’s need is different - no one size fits all
All clients are different and as a result all solutions are different. We can help you understand the sourcing options available (be it insourcing or outsourcing)
and align them with your business objectives. And as we have no bias or agenda, our advice is 100% independent.
3. We have a methodology but are not methodology driven
There has to be a structured approach to consulting to make it efficient and effective. We have this and more, through our proven FastSource™ methodology.
But the methodology has to serve the client, not the other way round. We are flexible and we do what’s needed, not just what the manual says.
4. We believe sustainability is achieved through collaboration
The arm’s length approach between client and supplier, adopted by some outsourcing advisors, fails every time. We encourage contact between clients and
suppliers and create a level playing field, to help suppliers come up with their very best offers. It make no sense to do anything else.
5. We are not cheerleaders for outsourcing – we tell it as it is
We know that outsourcing can deliver significant value but we know it isn’t right for every client. We also know how much hard work and time goes into making an outsourcing relationship work. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a fact that clients need to be aware of. If something looks wrong we will say so. And that means telling it like it is.
