Thinking Outside the Box

By Mark Brousseau

The state of the economy has companies looking to optimize whatever solutions they have in place, according to Susan L. Terry (slterry@cds-global.com), director of business development, new markets and indirect channels, CDS Global, a leading provider of outsourced business solutions.

“Whether the optimization is in the form of supplier change, outsourcing, co-sourcing, service expansion or tighter integration with other phases of the supply chain, every opportunity for process efficiency is being reviewed,” Terry told me. “All options are on the table.”

Terry believes the pace of opportunity for outsourced services providers like CDS Global may slow down over the next 12 months, but the scope of opportunities will continue to grow. “As human beings, and as companies made up of human beings, our creativity is at its best when the status quo is removed,” Terry explained. “We are now managing our businesses in a state without status quo, which will enable creative approaches to solving business problems.”
