First and foremost SafeSourcing brings deep and broad based category knowledge
Today’s post is by Ryan Melowic; Assistant Vice President of COE at SafeSourcing.
Currently, I am preparing for a presentation with a potential customer who runs multiple restaurants and a commissary. I want them to thoroughly understand the value that SafeSourcing could bring them during the process. Therefore I’m going to break it down for everyone below.
First and foremost SafeSourcing brings deep and broad based category knowledge. Whether we engage with the potential customer on restaurant supplies, food they use to create their menu or negotiating the way they buy power. SafeSourcing has knowledge in typically all categories because our team knows the industry.
Second, SafeSourcing knows who the key vendors are in the industry. We work to constantly update our database which has over 430,000 vetted suppliers. In the database we track safety certifications, key company details, product offering detail and contact detail based on region. Our clients value SafeSourcing for the vendors we provide for their eProcurment events that they might not otherwise engage.
Third, our specifications are extremely detailed and believe are second to n0 one. We work with our host companies to properly spec out the items that will be involved with an eProcurment event. Since we are familiar with the key requirements needed to properly build the specification in a large variety of industries, we understand the questions that need to be answered by the host in order to create a complete but user friendly specification. Additionally, we work to understand how the host currently procures their products so we can duplicate it electronically but in most cases improve upon it.
Finally, our process works! We have many years of successful eProcurement experience in a wide variety of expense, capital, and services and for resale types of events to support our claims. Just the fact that the typically return on investment in our services is greater than 18X speaks volumes as to our processes.
I can’t wait to meet with this new potential client as I can’t think of any reason why they wouldn’t give us a chance to show them what we can do. And we guarantee that they will be cost neutral in the process
