Strategic Sourcing

Integrated Supply Chain | SDI
The best parts from the best partners.
SDI’s strategic sourcing team handles MRO supplier negotiations, sourcing, management and performance to ensure that all spending contributes to your overall savings.   
After a comprehensive data review, we provide strategic sourcing recommendations including right sourcing, supplier consolidation, re-sourcing, product standardization and more. Our goal is to establish viable relationships with your existing supply base and to seek mutually beneficial relationships with new suppliers. Remember, we’re not a distributor, so we’re not tied to specific product lines or suppliers. That means we can make objective recommendations to develop the necessary links for more efficient, cost-cutting transaction processing.
Your SDI sourcing team will create a customized plan based on spending by category, supplier, and manufacturer. We understand that every business has unique diversity targets and sustainability goals, so our sourcing plans are aligned to support those objectives. The program includes projected savings by category, setting up a framework for negotiating on your behalf.  SDI’s sourcing plan will also include specific steps to improve the pricing and productivity of existing suppliers within your supply chain.  
Once approved, we implement the sourcing strategy and measure compliance, with typical savings between 11% and 14%. Finally, as part of our overall objective, we bring a responsible approach to the supply chain.We seek suppliers with green products and systems that meet your sustainability goals. And we do it for every SDI client.
