Reduces sourcing time by 90% with Silex
To meet the challenge of the digital transformation of procurement, Randstad calls on Silex to help its buyers improve their sourcing capabilities and gain in agility.
The Randstad Group is the world leader in human resources services. Present in 40 countries, it is also a major player in employment in France.
Randstad’s purchasing department is made up of a team of five buyers who cover all the group’s expenses in France with the exception of IT purchases.
Digitize and professionalize the procurement function
When carrying out its digital transformation, Randstad’s Procurement department aims to professionalize the function while gaining in efficiency. Its buyers needed new, easy-to-use business tools to facilitate the transition and benefit from an optimal user experience.
Reduce the time dedicated to sourcing to improve procurement performance
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.
