The Hackett Group & CASME Launch Alliance


Author: PASA

The Hackett Group and CASME have launched an alliance that will provide procurement clients of both companies with access to additional insights, research assets and networking opportunities.

Through the reciprocal alliance, members of The Hackett Group’s Procurement Advisory Programs will benefit from access to CASME’s extensive spend category-specific market intelligence and indirect spending expertise, as well as selected Webcasts, RoundTables, virtual events and other peer networking opportunities. CASME clients will gain access to select research insights from The Hackett Group’s procurement membership advisory teams. The Hackett Group will also host Webcasts and provide seats at selected virtual events for CASME members.

The Hackett Group’s empirical benchmarks detail how companies can improve efficiency and effectiveness, and quantify world-class and typical performance.  The Hackett Group’s research also spotlights strategic thinking in procurement transformation strategy, best practices and emerging areas — including the increasing use of digital transformation such as robotic process automation, artificial intelligence and blockchain — to enhance procurement and operational purchasing areas.

CASME runs over 200 RoundTables and virtual events every year and publishes 80 reports and benchmarking studies. CASME’s annual program covers 24 indirect categories and strategic topics, providing a complete package of knowledge for procurement professionals and the opportunity to share non-competitive information and benchmarking data with peers from other organizations.

“This alliance will benefit more than 500 large multi-national and global procurement organisations, including tens of thousands of participants with hundreds of billions of dollars in combined spend,” said Chris Sawchuk, The Hackett Group Principal & Global Procurement Advisory Practice Leader. “This valuable collaboration will provide CASME members and The Hackett Group’s procurement advisory program members with access to a selection of each company’s research assets and networking experiences.”

“CASME has an exceptional reputation for delivering indirect procurement category expertise, market insights, and networking opportunities,” said Sawchuk.  “We believe these will provide an excellent complement to The Hackett Group’s procurement benchmarking insights and advisory services.”

According to Graham Crawshaw, CASME Services Director, “This adds value to members of both of our organizations. The Hackett Group has established itself as the global leader in delivering research-based perspectives on world-class procurement performance, procurement strategy and transformation, and source-to-pay best practices. We believe this will be invaluable for CASME clients.”
