This e-book helps grocers from small, independent locations to medium-sized chains understand how third-party sourcing can support their efforts to maximize every dollar they invest in indirect spend.
Every grocery store must spend money on items and services that don’t directly earn revenue — such as cleaning services, corrugated cardboard boxes, marketing expenses, employee benefits and more. Indirect spend purchases can’t be resold to customers to defray costs. Therefore, it’s critical to procure these things as cost-effectively as possible.
This e-book helps managers and owners in independent stores and regional chains understand how to implement third-party sourcing to maximize the value of every dollar of indirect spend.
We’ll explore the true cost of indirect spend and explain how third-party sourcing can help maximize value by:
Relieving personnel and resource limitations
Providing access to robust procurement technology
Enhancing negotiating power with vendors
Creating cost-saving consistency in procurement processes
Boosting purchasing power through consolidation of spend
We’ll also explore what to look for when evaluating third-party sourcing partners for organizations.
