(9/26/2013) Source One Launches Strategic Sourcing Educational Series on YouTube and iTunes
WILLOW GROVE, PA (September 24, 2013) – Hot on the heels of its introduction on YouTube, Source One Management Services, LLC makes its debut on iTunes today, launching two new podcasts of supply chain and spend management news and trend discussions aimed at those within the procurement and strategic sourcing fields.
The podcasts feature contributions from many of Source One’s subject matter experts as they share their knowledge and insights on the pressing issues and burgeoning trends within the supply chain industry, including supply chain optimization, nearshoring, and supplier relationship management. The short, information-packed audio podcasts are designed to transfer the maximum amount of knowledge to its listeners in the minimum amount of time.
“Everything we offer at Source One – from our consulting services to our free eSourcing tools at WhyAbe.com – is designed to further assist and engage our clients and with others in the strategic sourcing and supply chain professions. These little info-packed podcasts fit right in to that strategy,” said Source One Vice President of Operations William Dorn.
The podcasts channels are coordinated on iTunes by language. “The Source One Podcast Network” hosts Source One’s English offerings, and “La Red de Podcasts de Source One” hosts its Spanish content. The Spanish podcast is the only source for strategic sourcing, supply chain, and spend management information in Spanish on iTunes. Each channel will feature bi-weekly updates, and upcoming releases include advancing trends in project management and strategic practices for the manufacturing industry.
“Source One was the leader in introducing Strategic Sourcing concepts to Latin American industries, and we continue to engage companies throughout the region to help them better capitalize on the opportunities available from U.S. companies nearshoring their production,” says Source One Project Manager Diego De la Garza. “Our offering of Spanish-language strategic sourcing and supply chain information that is easily accessible and free of charge just reinforces the ambassadorial role we have played for the industry in Latin America.”
In addition to the iTunes podcast channels, Source One’s trusted strategic sourcing advisors offer insights on the company’s YouTube channel, its quarterly webinar series presented in partnership with CFO.com, its monthly column in ThomasNet’s IMT Procurement Journal, and its industry-leading strategic sourcing blog at StrategicSourceror.com.
