Retail Sourcing Support Solutions

Sourcing support

Sourcing is considered one of the most critical tasks of any business in the world. Despite shouldering the responsibilities, all procurement managers are judged on their procurement decisions. With the current times being the ‘Survival Times’ - every business is facing challenges in executing their proper and effective procurement strategies. Filling the gaps, D’Art ropes in to help with challenge-effective sourcing support through its Unique Solutions to Retail Sourcing Support for better serving of any product or service.

From our wise intellect we -

Split Retail Sourcing Support into service and product by getting down to brass tacks while sourcing both product and service through understanding the requirement of a proper ‘Need Analysis’ - ranging from small, medium, and large. The core of need analysis then gets added up with ‘specs match’. The manpower is distributed (along with the scope of work) throughout the process of need analysis.

● While Sourcing Service:

Manpower gets distributed for developing UI (User Interface), UX (User Experience), and conducting research work.

● While Sourcing Product:

A product is manufactured from the core materials - metal, wood, glass, and plastic. The manpower to source these materials is required accordingly. Along with cores, AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology needs to be infused into the hardware to deliver the experience needed in this Phygital Age - it also requires a skilled workforce to deliver the desired outcome.

The full circle of sourcing amalgamates the ‘longevity factor’ laced with (quality) logistics and deployment. After all, sourcing support depends upon it.


1. The Longevity through determining:

● Life of service and product that is dependent upon the wearing and shelving over a certain period.

● Quality through various parameters - specs match, standards of materials used while manufacturing, implementation through proper guidelines, etc.

● Support before and after is like the guardian that is needed for eternity. It can also be called ‘Maintenance’ that is either conducted through call centers or through emailing after the query is posted - a proper support team is aligned for solving the query.

We make a brand to possess longevity via customer loyalty through the above cores.

2. Logistics and Deployment

Both logistics and deployment are branched from the tree of “Supply Chain Management”. The whole concept of Sourcing Support Solutions depends on it. Before deployment, the integration of information flow, materials handling, production packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing should be done through proper channels to ensure quality and standards. Differentiated for B2B, B2C, and D2C differently - all the above integrations are performed accordingly. Later the standards are ranked from varied parameters of satisfaction for both service and product.
