Lack of tools

Decline in operational efficiency

The results

Economic gain

90% working time saved compared to manual sourcing

Monitoring of the supplier environment

Through access to reliable data updated in real time

By sourcing with Silex, Randstad buyers save up to 90% in working time compared to manual sourcing. They spend on average less than 2 hours per sourcing and can therefore integrate this task into their daily activities.

Buyers have also gained in operational efficiency thanks to access to reliable and up-to-date data, accessible on a single tool. It is therefore no longer necessary to navigate between different tools to find the desired information. This has also made it possible to reduce the costs of accessing and managing supplier data, which represents around 500 euros in savings per year and per supplier.

The integration of Silex has thus largely contributed to the improvement of procurement performance, better control of the supplier environment and the rise in maturity of the procurement department within the group.
