Our solutions

Supplier scouting

We are proud to partner up with scoutbee who is a leading supplier discovery platform founded in 2015.

When was the last time you challenged your supplier?

We are living in a more complex and dynamic world than ever. This puts pressure on procurement teams, who must find ways to optimize category costs, drive innovation, and raise resilience, while at the same time secure that their supply chains are as sustainable as possible. Supplier Scouting is an important part of cost orchestration to source the best suitable suppliers.

If you want to successfully increase profitability, you need to challenge yourself and have knowledge about the supplier landscape in a certain category. Companies need to display a high level of agility when responding to supply chain bottlenecks. 

Unforeseen events, new regulations and demands put pressure on suppliers, and what happens when a supplier can’t reach your compliance? What options do you have? You need to have a tool to find the best suppliers for your needs, to be more competitive and resilient.

ET Advisory’s expertise in handling complex cost drivers and profitability, together with Scoutbee, offers an ideal combination for unlocking maximum value from their respective solutions.

Identify suppliers at high speed, get valuable insights on cost and profitability

ET Advisory and Scoutbee’s partnership is a close collaboration where both teams work together to find the best possible solutions for their customer’s problems. 

Having the ability to identify suppliers at high speed and having business units outside of procurement involved in the process is key to ET Advisory’s cost orchestration. As a framework, cost orchestration aims to reduce siloed structures within companies. With departments having their own KPIs, companies often lose efficiency – while driving costs at the same time. 

Supplier Scouting not only facilitates the lengthy process of scouting and onboarding suppliers: but it also helps to bring departments and business units closer together, allowing them to monitor the progress of scouting and directly interact with suitable suppliers.

ET Advisory, together with Scoutbee, helps corporations to find the most suitable supplier and valuable insights on cost and profitability when it comes to scouting and sourcing suppliers.
