Making purchases more effective
Cooperative society Nordic Source Coop for joint purchases provides their members an effective way of arranging their purchases.
We are looking for new operating models for our members and we are competing for products and services. We are freeing companies to focus on key acquisitions of their core business.
Our agreements cover a wide range of products and services in Finland, the Nordic countries and the Baltic countries. We negotiate framework agreements for the use of our members' parent companies, subsidiaries and ownership entities in their countries of operation.
We bring suppliers an alternative way to market their products and services instead of one company to several. Together with the supplier, we focus on finding the most cost-effective and competitive solutions for our members.
Nordic Source - operations and structure
Nordic Source Coop was established in 2009. Main operating principle is to indentify the best alternative operating models and purchase concepts. After the purchase product group (the so-called category team) has agreed the products or services to be tendered, the the RFx process is driven by Nordic Source.
The contracts of the Cooperative Society cover products or services other than those belonging to the sphere of the companies' strategic purchases. These include In practice all purchases except raw materials and additives, semi-finished and finished products and certain packaging materials.
The operation is based on category teams to be established jointly with members and the cooperative society's personnel, and to be led by an appointed project manager. Category teams create joint targets and purchasing strategies.
