Taking a look at some of the more obscure projects we have managed!
Today’s post is by Dave Wenig, Senior Vice President of Sales and Services at SafeSourcing Inc.
Usually when we start talking to someone about eProcurement, they think of commodity items like copy paper or other somewhat boring examples of what they think you can source with a reverse auction. Do not get me wrong, if you are buying copy paper for your enterprise, there is no better way to get a better price than to use an online bidding event like a reverse auction. You will be glad you did.
What is often underestimated is just how many different areas within your spend you can use this process. Here is a first look at a couple of examples of how we have taken that to new heights.
I would bet that when you think of SafeSourcing and eProcurement, you probably do not think of aviation. Yet our services have been successfully employed to get deep discounts on our customers’ aviation needs. Sure, we have managed travel services and booking, but that is not really that interesting.
Believe it or not (believe it, it is true) we’ve separately sourced both jet fuel discounts and chartered jet services. So, whether your company manages its own fleet of jets, or you find it more economical to go the chartered route, we are proud to report that we can get you a really great discount on either using our eProcurement tools.
The point is that SafeSourcing’s services should not be limited to mere supply categories. We do so much more than that. Check back in the future for part 2 and I will share more examples of some out of the ordinary sourcing activities.
