Strategic Sourcing Guide to Liquidation Service Procurement

Overview

The market for Business and Commercial Services and its sub-segments such as Liquidation Service are at an interesting intersection. Suppliers are increasingly offering a 'bundle' of services which is marketed as a cost saving option. The bundled offering often includes services that are not required by the buyer or are charged at a much higher rate than an A la carte option with another supplier.

Suppliers are introducing self-service tools such as virtual agents in their customer service ecosystem to reduce the time and costs incurred by customers to resolve an issue.

Talent pools available to suppliers of Liquidation Service are gradually getting costlier, impacting their OPEX. Suppliers are compelled to change their pricing structure and pass on some of this cost increase to their customers.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Liquidation Service is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Liquidation Service Procurement Best Practices

Liquidation Service procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Liquidation Service procurement strategy.

For example, Buyers should engage with service providers that provide AFA in their pricing as negotiating on an hourly basis can increase the procurement cost of buyers due to overruns within lawsuits. AFA also provides buyers with cost predictability, certainty, and transparency.

There are increased exposure risks of confidential data such as product and service information, operations, and customer information when engaging a third-party supplier. Buyers must engage with suppliers that use encryption technologies, password protection, access control solutions, and proper training schedules to prevent possible information breach.

Cost saving opportunities may reduce exponentially in relation to the time left for current contract to expire or required timeline to start the engagement. Therefore sufficient interval should exist between initation of new procurement and expected start date of the new contract for Liquidation Service.
