Matthew Merker, author of the report, goes on to highlight PwC’s BXT approach, “PwC’s approach, integrating business, experience, and technology, helps clients alter their perception on operations and breaks down silos to create an enterprise-wide view that ultimately reveals even further optimizations beyond sourcing strategy.”

In regards to PwC’s management system, which ALM notes as Best in Class, Merker notes, “PwC’s transformational approach to sourcing strategy as part of an overarching supply chain operating model framework, bolstered through thoughtful use of the firm’s BXT centers, creates a strong management system within client organizations with built in performance measurement capabilities.”

On PwC’s service delivery, the report states “PwC’s advisory services in this area are provided with an understanding that the increased complexity of the sourcing market calls for innovative strategy development to realize further cost savings after the low-hanging-fruit opportunities have been utilized…Additionally, PwC assists clients in the development of integrated supply chain operating models that take a holistic view and offer opportunities for additional synergies, innovations, and cost saving measures.”
