"How companies like Levis and Starbucks benefit from cloud-based platforms to manage their strategic sourcing" Faced with a large, diverse organization, Levi’s lacked a centralized way to manage sourcing and savings, leading to inefficiency and a lack of collaboration. Levi’s Sourcing team combined over a dozen categories into a single platform using a straightforward approach to sourcing, savings tracking, and planning: • Centralized spend under management • Better able to identify projects across categories • Partner more closely with strategic suppliers “With Scout, we get to see across the organization, and can help make connections. If we see one function undertaking a project, and a close parallel somewhere else in the company, we’re able to connect those stakeholders simply and easily.”
