Why Choose Us?
Strategic sourcing and vendor management are two critical functions for any business. From services to manufacturing, companies are relying more on vendors to provide non-core products and services which creates risk to the business through reliance on third party organizations.
This is why leading class strategic sourcing and vendor management are critical to the success of an organization through ensuring the correct vendors with the required qualifications are selected and risk mitigation is implemented.
How We Will Work With You
Link–Sage is able to work with your staff, internal stakeholders and external suppliers to drive a specific sourcing project resulting in the best solution based on pre-defined value criteria. At the same time, we will share the knowledge and methodology with your organization as part of internal development. Vendor relationships are challenging to maintain and develop while very important to organizations as vendors are able to bring industry expertise, capabilities and resources to support your objectives.
We work with you to develop collaborative relationships based on key performance indicators aligned to strategic goals which positions your vendor relationships to maximise the value they bring.learn more
Environmental sustainability is being taken under stronger consideration by organizations but many are at a loss on how to implement true environmental sustainability programs balanced with fiscal responsibility to shareholders. Leveraging ISO principles, Link–Sage will develop an environmental sustainability program with your organization to ensure sourcing decisions take the environment into account.
This is augmented with Total Quality Management (TQM) practices to build environmental sustainability into the organization’s operations and culture.learn more
"Mark was one of my leaders. We faced an Operation that was too cost heavy, couldn’t ship on time and was costing the company market share. Mark took ownership over the challenges we faced in our supply chain. He led efforts to re-organize and structure our vendors and supply chain. He created new sourcing models and led efforts with Design Engineering to apply ‘design for sourcing’ approaches resulting in substantial material cost reductions. Mark applied innovative approaches from 3PL, Lean Delivery approaches and outsourcing to lower cost providers both in North America and Far East. This helped us achieve a very quick turn-around to profitability. Mark also provided me a versatility to manage multiple functions and always displayed a strong team-player character."
