    I joined a CASME RoundTable that was originally planned as a face-to-face event, but due to COVID-19 was conducted online.  During uncertain periods, it’s important to invest in yourself to be ready for the future.  I can strongly recommend joining – the quality and value of the discussion is very high, because CASME connects you with other professionals around the world to gain an extremely interesting and in-depth understanding of the topic.  The more you share, the more value you’ll get, and it’s a really fun way to build your peer network.

  • We really value a service like CASME to give us insight into what’s going on in the marketplace. The information our procurement teams gain from CASME's benchmarking reports is vital in helping us develop our annual category plans. CASME is well-positioned to be a great focus for the world of procurement.

    I like the small group focus of CASME RoundTable discussions and the notes are valuable tools that help support sourcing and negotiation initiatives. No matter how seasoned an organisation is in managing a category of spend, there is always something to learn and share.

  • The content within the CASME website, as well as the knowledge acquired and networking opportunities at various RoundTables, has been immense.  I would highly recommend CASME for any company wishing to plug any knowledge gaps in category management within their sourcing teams.”

    The Link-Up was really helpful as it has provided us with information about the project and helped us with our business case.
    It also provided me with some valuable tips on how to manage stakeholders.

  • I'm pleased to say that my expectations were exceeded in almost all respects, and this RoundTable event was one of the best of its type that I have attended. There were a number of key learnings that we took from discussions which will add value across our organisation.

    I participated in a CASME survey on behalf of BlueScope for this report and have reviewed the findings which are both useful and informative.

    It was reassuring to find that BlueScope’s current sourcing and category management strategies are closely aligned with majority of other participating organisations.

  • As an independent organisation, CASME is able to provide impartial benchmarking services that are unique from those that Airbus conduct internally and different from those provided by trade associations. If we use CASME, it’s all taken care of through a complete benchmarking programme which adds breadth and authenticity to the data.

    I am pleased to say that I have benefitted hugely from CASME RoundTables; these are extremely useful in helping me complete category plans and refine my approach to subsequent supplier negotiations.  The views and thoughts of my peers, who are often in totally different industry sectors, is invaluable.  I would highly recommend the CASME service to any strategic procurement professional.
