Regional Grocery Chain Fuels Procurement Excellence With PROACTIS Intesource

150-Store Grocery Retailer Controls Costs and Improves Transparency With New Approach to e-Sourcing

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2015) -  Following an initial sourcing project that identified more than a half million dollars in potential savings and significantly improved process transparency, one of the Nation's leading full-service grocery retailers has signed a three year deal with PROACTIS Intesource -- the go-to e-sourcing provider for restaurants, grocers, and retailers.

With four initial e-sourcing events alone, the 150-store retailer was able to identify a significant amount of potential savings while maintaining -- and in some cases, improving -- the quality and service levels it was receiving from suppliers. Four Intesource-powered events produced a higher return than the member-owned co-operative purchasing group that the grocer had previously leveraged.

"Companies are often surprised to discover the magnitude of savings, efficiency and value that can be secured through our managed service offering," stated Brian Miller, VP of Services at Intesource. "Our innovative e-sourcing process paints a clear picture of the suppliers, products, pricing, and terms available on the market, helping procurement teams identify the best value and provide their organization with a unique transparency and competitive edge."

As with every Intesource e-sourcing project, Intesource offered the grocery chain's buyers sourcing strategy, category expertise and event support -- working in partnership with the buying team to manage all aspects of the RFx process, while still providing the retailer with full control and visibility into the sourcing event.
