Buying Agents in a Globalized World – All Commodities

Outsourced manufacturing has become an integral part of most global businesses. To operate in an increasingly competitive global market, a sourcing strategy that involves buying locally combined with sourcing from low cost countries has assumed great importance. A number of companies have been able to successfully lower manufacturing costs by moving their production operations to manufacturers with the help of a sourcing company, as well as finding accredited & certified suppliers. This has helped them withstand competition, survive and reap profits even in the event of an economic slowdown. Procurement savings have influenced bottom-line results of companies significantly. Further, companies have been able to boost their revenues by reinvesting these savings while they carve a substantial market for their products when they extend highly competitive pricing to their clients.

Our largest market & operations from this region is currently services & solutions from Mexico

Mexico remains a significant and growing manufacturing destination for many US based industrial companies. Low cost labor and a favorable business environment combine to allow companies to pursue low cost operations near-shore to the US without the long, complex, and expensive supply chains required in countries like China and India.

Despite many procurement related investments, many companies have found it difficult to develop and deploy an effective indirect procurement strategy in Mexico. Our experience in Mexico can help your company to:

  • Reduce the erosion of labor cost advantages by shoring up purchasing governance toward reducing inventory shrinkage, reducing conflicts of interests, and improving control of business capital.
  • Deploy standard purchasing processes and systems thereby improving process governance.
  • Eliminate issues arising from lacking data visibility, access, and integrity.
  • Increase location specific purchasing expertise.
  • Reduce the operational complexities for companies operating in Mexico that purchase a significant portion of their indirect material requirements from US based suppliers.
