MasterNegotiator.com is the natural progression for Source One's service offering and it has been part of our strategic plan for years
Willow Grove, Penn. (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
For the fourth consecutive year, Source One Management Services, LLC has been awarded the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. Supply & Demand Chain Executive, a leading business magazine and the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, featured its eighth-annual listing of innovative supply and demand chain vendors as the magazine's cover story in its June/July 2009 issue.
This year, SDCE focused its "100" feature on supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations that are helping companies' supply and demand chains adjust to the unstable economy. Source One received recognition for its offering of three innovative solutions suited to assist companies of all sizes.
In November 2008, Source One launched the web's first self-service strategic sourcing site, http://www.MasterNegotiator.com, for companies looking to handle their sourcing needs on their own. "MasterNegotiator.com is the natural progression for Source One's service offering and it has been part of our strategic plan for years" said Steven Belli, CEO of Source One. The site offers pre-negotiated contracts for businesses looking for a free, quick, and easy way to gain immediate access to preferred pricing for commonly purchased items and services. Master Negotiator currently offers contracts with aggressive pricing in categories such as office supplies, telecommunications services, merchant accounts, pest control, apparel, outsourced business services, freight and transportation.
Another Source One innovative solution is the web's first and only free e-sourcing and contract management tool, http://www.WhyAbe.com. The WhyAbe.com technologies are already being used by hundreds of businesses ranging from one-person startups to Fortune 500 corporations. Buyers have the ability to research and find new suppliers, manage contracts, and create and manage RFX and Reverse Auction events. Suppliers can register for free in the supplier directory, find new business, and advertise their products or services through free basic online stores. There is no software to install, no fees to pay, and no complex licensing agreements for buyers or suppliers. For an affordable monthly fee, WhyAbe.com also provides private label sites for companies that want to maintain their own branding identity.
Source One, of course, still offers its traditional customized strategic sourcing solutions for those companies looking to engage a full service Procurement Service Provider. Source One can help organizations analyze and improve spend coverage, reduce costs, introduce industry best practices, monitor supplier compliance and leverage the latest procurement technologies. Other benefits of this engagement include a heightened level of visibility into purchasing data, strengthened relationships with suppliers, and improved internal compliance. Source One offers a 100% contingency-based low-risk solution for organizations that have unique or complex requirements, require assistance with implementation, lack resources, or would like to leverage volumes to rationalize the supply base and obtain best-in-class pricing.
The SDCE "100" list was determined by submissions to the magazine from end users and solution providers, as well as the judging committee for the "100," the editorial staff of the magazine, and the editorial advisory board. SDCE's goal this year was to highlight a wide array of solutions and services applicable to companies of all sizes in several different industries. Through its three unique offerings, Source One is able to meet the needs of any company in any industry.
Determined to remain ranked among the industry's most recognized supply chain solution providers, Source One is continuously focused on delivering the most innovative and efficient supply and demand chain solutions to help companies optimize their supply chains and remain profitable during these difficult economic times.
