Sourcing is the new strategic asset for retailers

Retail sourcing—the responsible reset | Accenture

Five pillars to unleash strategic retail sourcing

Digitized sourcing

Adopt digitized sourcing, such as advanced analytics and automation, and build collaborative and tech-savvy teams to accelerate work that matters.

Profitable sustainability

Understand the environmental and cost impacts of sourcing decisions from the start to create fully certified sustainable products at the best cost.

Surety of supply

Create an adaptable supply footprint to ensure dependability, cost efficiency, and sustainability—delivering for customers and protecting the brand.

Category champions and partners

Do more with less by using advanced analytics and partners to win in new markets without investing time and money to build the capability in house.

Shared success through the ecosystem

Embrace shared success, through trust and transparency, to build agile and efficient supply ecosystems.

Sourcing needs to be at the forefront of the retail business—more core to the value proposition and brand purpose than it has ever been before.

Now’s the time to reset retail sourcing
