Pro Outsourcing was able to quickly identify key cost areas and put together a team with expertise in design to cost (DTC). Leading the design changes which enabled us to buy alternative parts, use a cost effective way to manufacture and use cheaper materials. They then worked to extract spending information from our SAGE system to project future spending volumes. Developed an inventory of available suppliers, and invited a select number of these suppliers providing them with a request for quotation (RFQ) package that outlined the volumes, projections, and partnerships sought.
The team analysed the RFQ responses and conducted multiple rounds of negotiations with the potential suppliers. To validate the information in the RFQs, Pro Outsourcing together with our internal team visited the high-potential suppliers to confirm and assess their capabilities. The on-site visits included reviewing engineering capabilities, technical components, and financial stability, as well as quality audits.
Pro Outsourcing have been invaluable to the growth of our company offering substantial savings and we continue to use their services to embed the changes and ensure everything is managed through to fruition.
