Should you try e-Procurement? Recently I met with the owner of a local company to discuss the possibility of helping his company with procurement. We discussed our background and how we have helped clients big and small. One of his first questions was, “I am only one location do you believe I have a spend large enough that warrants help from SafeSourcing?” The answer is a resounding, YES! We discussed what he currently purchases and what he needs. After talking for quite some time, we found out that there are a couple of things he would like to try to take to market. The first thing was janitorial and cleaning supplies. With his business there is always cleaning needed to be done; but with only one business is that enough spend to pay an event fee and still see savings? I explained to him our Risk Free Trial and that in recent history, we have saved clients over 27% on the same items. Even with the smallest of spends that is still a sizable amount. We then discussed other possibilities and his future plans. He explained to me that he is expanding and looking to open a new location/warehouse. That is fantastic! I proceeded to inform him that construction, project management, and general contracting is also something we can help him with. We are not just a one trick pony. We can help with it all, I told him to think outside of the box. From the walk-in coolers and HVAC, to the building itself, we will help him find the general contractor that suits his requirements. I hope to help him grow his business and look to help him expand in the future years
So should you try e-Procurement? The answer is yes, from small goods to large construction jobs, we can help with it all. In 2017, we have helped our clients save an average of 24% +/- across all categories. So give it a try, challenge us and see what SafeSourcing can do for you!
