Q: What are the benefits of using an Sourcing agent?

Å: ’Cut out the middleman’ sounds great in theory, but in practice, not so much.

As the specifications are so wide and finding the best cost and quality can run to hundreds of different suppliers, having a specialist or consultant research, source, and negotiate for you is by far the easier, more logical, and in the long run, less expensive option.

Dealing directly with manufacturers can also mean being subject to their vested interest in supplying you with as many of their own products as possible. Some of which may not suit the vision, price point, or aesthetic you’re looking for.

By working with an independent sourcing agent or specialist, you will save both time and money while gaining the invaluable experience, supply chain, and project management skills that a professional consultant will bring to your project and business.

A Sourcing agent specialist will help you quickly identify your product and budget, they will then bring their trained and experienced eye to your scheme, and zone into your requirements. Leveraging all their network, contacts, and industry knowledge they will ensure that your project is completed without abortive costs, on time, and on budget, leaving you to get on with your day job.

So, in terms of MECO sourcing, it’s fair to say that the middleman is more like the conductor leveraging knowledge & experience to drive cost savings & value for your project or business.
