Post on 30-Jun-2015
DESCRIPTIONA hypercompetitive business environment calls for newer, innovative approaches to sourcing and procurement (S&P). Low cost country sourcing (LCCS) or best cost country sourcing (BCCS) helps cut costs by sourcing a number of tasks to geographies that are competent while being competitive.
