"Traditionally, Marketing groups would only work with Procurement on tactical spend categories such as print materials and promotional items," states Kathleen Jordan, a Senior Project Manager at Source One Management Services, LLC. "We are beginning to see a shift in the landscape and Marketing groups need more support when it comes to their more strategic relationships that tie directly to a particular brand’s campaign." Jordan is Source One’s marketing spend category manager and oversees a team of consultants that serves as decision support for Marketing groups within Source One’s client base.
Decision support, along with benchmarking and contract management, are three core benefits that a Sourcing department can deliver to any Marketing group. The report explains these service offerings further, detailing best-in-class processes and methodologies that can be employed to optimize results – including gaining first access to supplier innovation, and increasing top-line revenue growth.
The analysis concludes by demonstrating these methodologies in action – with a case study on effective collaboration between these two diverse groups.
The report serves as the new standard for any Procurement Professional currently seeking an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with their company’s Marketing department and improve their department’s service offering. The report can be downloaded at http://www.sourceoneinc.com/marketing
