Success story: Bpost
bpost’s contingent sourcing process included approximately 100 suppliers on a regular basis. This number needed to be reduced to several preferred suppliers. At the same time, there was a major concern that a decreased supplier base would result in higher rates or the inability to get certain projects staffed in time. In addition to optimizing the supplier base, response times and administrative workload needed to be reduced.
CE VMS deals with these objectives through an integrated set of four modules, with the possibility to link CE Marketplace functionalities. This combination empowers bpost to structure, optimize and automate all processes related to working with preferred suppliers, while continuously challenging existing suppliers or finding specific niche profiles.
