The Dawn of a New Era

If you are reading this blog, then you already know that a new day has dawned at SIG…and no, we don’t mean there is a new Dawn or that Dawn Evans is making any changes…only that SIG is moving forward. After a year of planning, designing, programming, testing, fixing, redesigning, reprogramming, retesting and reorganizing, we have finally launched a new website! We are so excited to share this site with you. We hope you find the site easier to use €¦and the information you are seeking, easier to find. We ‘d like to point out some new features so you can maximize your time visiting the SIG website:

Calendar of Events – Want to plan ahead and make sure you can attend the next Summit or see if there are any events coming to a city near you? Our full calendar is on the home page of the website. Click on the blue links on the calendar for more information or to register. We even have all the Summit dates listed through 2017, so you have no excuses for not attending!

Sneak Peek: Peer2Peer – Our Peer2Peer (P2P) resource is one of our most popular ways to share best practices and learn from one another…and we ‘ve made it even easier for our members! Log in and post a question in any of the categories listed to open a dialogue directly €¦or if you ‘d rather do it “the old-fashioned way,” complete a form and we ‘ll send an email out for you.

The Spotlight – We love this! In this area, we are highlighting recent and/or relevant white papers that are in our SIG Resource Center (SRC), compliments of our provider members. Click on the arrows or dots at the top to see the three we are featuring this month and download them for more details! Industry News – Each week we’ll be updating this section with some of the hot articles trending in the space. Check in frequently for the latest news in sourcing or outsourcing OR relevant articles about one of our member companies.

Tweets – Our live Twitter feed features everything we are tweeting about at SIG…as well as any tweets by members who reference €œ@SIGinsights € so start chirping. SIG Blog – Well it goes without saying that if you are reading this, you ‘ve already discovered the blog. We are so excited about this and promise to post insights, articles, updates and summaries several times each week. Our members provide us with so much great information – we are thrilled to have a venue to use to regularly write about it.

SIG Resource Center – Well the SRC has always been there…but now we’ve organized everything so it is easier to find. We also have a “Trending Now” section so you can see the items that are most frequently being accessed by our members.

In the Polls – This is just for fun…but is a great way for us to gauge information from our membership on issues that are top of mind. It ‘s worth saying that this is just “Phase I” in a multi-phase website overhaul. Future versions will feature an “Amazon-like” search tool in the SRC and other way-cool functionality. We hope that you enjoy the new site! Tell all your colleagues about it…and let us know if there are things you ‘d find useful for us to include as we continue to improve it. In the meantime, check out the new features and let us know what you think!
