The Jump-Start Approach
Capgemini can help your company devise the most appropriate and effective risk-mitigation strategy so that you can successfully and confidently implement a forward-looking low-cost sourcing (LCS) strategy.
Our Jump-Start approach involves a six-week audit to accelerate the completion of a low-cost sourcing strategy. Using this model, we successfully help automotive companies speed the development of their LCS strategies.
Capgemini Will Help You Source Strategically
Continued growth and increased profits brought about by reducing costs are not the only benefits of global sourcing. Emerging-market sourcing can also set a new benchmark and help drive step changes in performance with incumbent suppliers.
There is also often an intrinsic link between buying and selling opportunities in emerging markets. In one successful example, we worked with a Tier 1 automotive supplier to develop a global emerging-market sourcing program. A cross-functional, globally located team was established and end-to-end sourcing activity was completed in 16 weeks, delivering a 21% savings opportunity.
