"I saved the entire annual subscription fee with the implementation of just one StrategicSource category solution.....the rest of the year is free service" Office Manager
(PRWEB) December 5, 2009
Douglas Austin, President & CEO of StrategicSource, Inc. has announced the launch of their new and innovative Integrated Purchasing Service. StrategicSource has teamed up with some of the largest national, regional and local suppliers across the country to provide highly competitive fixed pricing, competitive business terms, Best Practices and much more for the routine supplies and services used by most businesses and non-profits everyday.
StrategicSource, Inc and their subsidiary, Performance Management Group, have been providing purchasing services to retail, manufacturing, hospitality and other markets since 1992. In that time they have consistently reported cost reductions in the 22%-24% range for commonly used supplies, services and equipment by 23% in well over 100+ expense categories. Category examples include office supplies, printed materials, credit card processing, check processing, background checks, beverage services and much more.
The Integrated Purchasing Service or IPS Purchasing model is highly innovative and a very low cost solution for organizations that do not have a professional Purchasing Department, or for organizations that are resource constrained and do not have time to effectively source 100+ expense categories.
“The Integrated Purchasing Service combines the power of benchmarking, negotiated pricing with national suppliers, and web based deployment of information and solutions to deliver immediate cost reductions to organizations of all sizes” Austin says. The Integrated Purchasing Service has been under development for two years and was recently tested at several small retail sites. “I saved the entire subscription fee on just one category solution” said an office manager for a Washington based retailer who recently implemented the subscription based solution.
Early reviews of client information suggests that return on investment(ROI) for this innovative subscription program will result in 6:1 and more. When soft cost savings from supply base reductions and less internal sourcing are factored in, ROI’s can easily exceed 12:1.
Doug Austin said “The Integrated Purchasing Service is unique. Organizations need an efficient and cost effective alternative to the constant sourcing and price shopping done by all levels of an organization for commonly used supplies and services. We believe strongly that our Integrated Purchasing Services will become the norm for companies interested in improving bottom line performance using Purchasing professionals to secure the right balance of cost-quality and service.”
StrategicSource offers a free, no-obligation analysis of up to three pre-selected expense categories to prove the effectiveness of their solution. If customers like what they see, they can then sign up for an annual subscription to the service which can sometimes pay for itself in just a couple of months.
StrategicSource has piloted the Integrated Purchasing Service with retail establishments and is now preparing to venture into the Manufacturing, Education and Services vertical markets as well.
