Intesource Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for Third Consecutive Year

E-Sourcing Project Saves Price Chopper More Than $4M

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2015) -  Intesource, the go-to e-sourcing provider for the retail, grocery, and restaurant industries, has been named to the 2015 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for the third straight year. The award recognizes Intesource's continued success in enabling its customers to achieve supply chain excellence.

The winning project, which was powered by Intesource's experienced team of sourcing professionals and e-sourcing platform, involved Price Chopper, a regional grocery chain offering fresh foods at affordable prices. Price Chopper was seeking to source floor care providers to service its 135 stores. They conducted an online RFI, RFQ and live reverse auction to gather, analyze and find the best supplier based on quality, service and price. The project created significant value and resulted in more than $4 million in savings.

"A common struggle for grocery chains and retailers is gathering all the critical information to make an informed sourcing decision," said Brian Miller, VP of Services at Intesource. "The seemingly simple process of compiling supplier data can help retailers see what's available in terms of products, prices, terms, quality, and inventory, which gives these companies better value for their money and creates more business opportunities across the board."

The 2015 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 are supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and have produced measurable gains in ROI through cost-cutting, and increased efficiency, whether in warehouse, transportation, procurement, sourcing or any other category in the end-to-end supply chain.
