Jacksonville, Fla. (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces the launch of its new website, http://www.sig.org, a robust resource for executives in sourcing, outsourcing and procurement. The launch of the site marks the completion of phase I of a multi-phase website reimagination project.
“We are so excited to share our new website with our members and SIG champions,” says Dawn Evans, SIG President and CEO. “One of the largest parts of our site, the SIG Resource Center (SRC) was designed and built by our members for our members. With a library of over 3,600 best-practice documents, many of our members utilize the site as their first stop when sourcing a new category, entering a new supply market or benchmarking with peers. The enhanced features of the website make the search capabilities even easier.”
In addition to a new graphical user interface, the enhanced SIG website offers a variety of new features including: a SIG blog covering topics that are of interest to members; a calendar of events that lists every SIG event on the horizon; a “spotlight” area that showcases three thought leader white papers each month; a Peer2Peer resource members can use for instant feedback on burning questions; as well as links to industry news and relevant tweets. The SIG website also has improved search functionality in the SRC, where members can go for tools, templates, methodologies, training aids, market intelligence, benchmarking reports, procurement trends, white papers, archived presentations, on-demand webinars and more.
“People used to think of SIG as an ‘event’ company,” says Sarah Holliman, Vice President of Marketing. “But the new site solidifies what our members already know—that SIG is a resource professionals in sourcing, outsourcing and procurement come to for thought leadership, ‘next’ practices, support tools AND networking opportunities. The events are an incredibly important part of SIG…but the resources we provide to our members through the website enable them to do their jobs more efficiently on a daily basis.”
SIG, http://www.sig.org, is a membership organization that has served sourcing, procurement and outsourcing professionals from Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies throughout its 22-year history. SIG is unique in that it blends practitioners, service providers and advisory firms in a non-commercial environment. Members of all types are focused on improving bottom-line performance, quality and customer service through strategic sourcing/procurement and outsourcing initiatives. SIG is acknowledged by many as a world leader in providing an ongoing forum for networking and sharing thought leadership, innovation and “next” practices.
