Share Article

The Tampa-based Operations Management Consulting firm offers clients a comprehensive portfolio of Supplier Relationship Management capabilities focused on the upstream supply chain, providing immediate and long-term savings opportunities, cost controls and metric improvements as well as better integration with suppliers and a more streamlined and effective supply chain.

We work with clients to ensure that they have the right inputs at the right time and the right cost to profitably meet customer demand.

Supplier Relationship Management is a discipline that works to strategically assess and mitigate the inherent risk in the supply chain of any business by strengthening relationships with their key suppliers. It helps ensure that the right inputs are available at the right time, and the right cost to profitably meet customer demand. USC Consulting Group (USCCG) has been providing these services for years under the name Spend Management, but in a move to better align with its clients, has recently decided to change the practice name to Supplier Relationship Management.

“Purchasing and procurement costs typically represent one of the larger expenses across all business types, so helping to streamline processes and remove inefficiencies can provide huge direct and indirect cost savings. We work with clients to help diagnose those inefficiencies, then develop and implement strategies to close the gaps in the process, and save money through lower per unit prices, improved cash flow, and lower inventory levels,” says Kim Homa, Co-Practice Leader for USCCG’s Supplier Relationship Management Practice.

"A robust Supplier Relationship Management strategy can apply to businesses in all industries and drives both financial and qualitative value,” according to Jerry Moody, Co-Practice Leader.

The derived benefits include:

  •          Lower Procurement Costs
  •          Reduction in Supply Interruptions
  •          Reduced Inventory and Obsolescence
  •          Improved Product Quality
