CPG provides the following services to importers who demand superior performance from their China sourcing operations.
The China Sourcing Solution: Your Own China Team: Need a professional sourcing team? Our team is as big or as small as you need it, is always professional and reliable, and our fees are affordable and transparent.
Many importers have concluded that the ideal sourcing solution is to have one’s own hands-on professional sourcing team, a team that promptly and efficiently addresses each of their requirements. At the same time, many have realized that such a team is costly and presents a management burden. We specialize in supporting our clients with these challenges, namely providing the right size sourcing team at an affordable cost. We have done this for 40 years. We use two approaches to deliver the optimal sourcing teams to our clients
We manage the system; our clients manage us.
See our pricing page for more information on our sourcing packages
Knowledge: We have 40 years of experience at your service and a Proven Process to take sourcing operations to the next level.
We transfer our knowledge to our clients so that they learn from our systems and experience. We both benefit from this interactive process: We share our knowledge on all aspects of the sourcing program—from RFQ to Quality Assurance to Logistics—and our clients share their practical experience.
Many of our clients like to periodically check how their China sourcing management “measures up” to their competitors, so we developed a tool to test exactly this: Our China Sourcing Management Survey With this, one can obtain measurable results quickly (it takes less than 15 minutes) and anonymously. Doing this survey provides a comprehensive evaluation of your sourcing management, identification of your strengths, and four tips on how to improve your China sourcing operations. Repeating the survey periodically enables you to track improvements and progress over time. See our pricing page for details.
Performance: It is our middle name and what our clients care most about. Improving sourcing performance means making small and big changes, finely tuned to each client’s needs.
Performance Analysis: Our performance analyses start with discussion and review of our clients’ concerns on key aspects of their sourcing program. We systematically evaluate and analyze their current program and systems; we compare it to proven, optimal procedures and practical alternatives; and determine if improvements can be made. Our analysis and recommendations are based on facts and market place data, not theory. We provide a final report which usually includes an evaluation of the potential monetary value of the improvements.
Advice: You have a good system in place but you want to optimize it. You seek a second opinion, expert advice on what can be done, on what should be done.
Our advice is grounded on broad and deep experience of all elements of China sourcing. The objective is to obtain dramatic results, implemented through the “Ultimate China Sourcing Solution,” which always includes one key element: your very own “China Team.” This solution, and the priorities of the China team, are different for each company. Many of our clients have operated in China for years and have a good system in place. But they want better. Transforming a good sourcing operation to a great one is not a magic trick—it is a painstaking process of understanding what works, what does not, and what should be done. It is achieved by implementing a series of adjustments, big and small. But it must start first with a clear vision: one’s unique China Sourcing Solution.
To provide the most beneficial and necessary advice, we closely interface with our clients who share with us their knowledge, concerns, strategic sourcing goals, aspirations, and challenges.
