Vendor Management Success Stories
Our mission is to help small and mid-sized organizations - both profit and nonprofit - better leverage vendor relationships to simplify purchasing, streamline operations and increase profitability. Here are just a few stories from some of the great projects we've worked on with our clients, partners and cooperative members.
American Kidney Fund
American Kidney Fund wanted to scale up so they could help more kidney patients. They engaged Vendor Centric to help design better and faster processes, and a more scalable grants management system.
Classic Party Rentals
The Mint Museum was planning a gala dubbed as one of the 'events of the year', and turned to Classic Party Rentals and the Alliance Purchasing Cooperative (a Vendor Centric managed coop) to ensure the experience matched the hype.
5 Energy Advisors
The Allegany Museum felt it was paying too much for energy. They turned to 5 Energy Advisors and the Alliance Purchasing Cooperative (a Vendor Centric managed coop) and shaved 20% off of their energy bill.
American Alliance of Museums
The American Alliance of Museums had plans to grow membership by 20%, and saw a managed purchasing cooperative with Vendor Centric as a new member benefit that could help them get there.
Association of Zoos & Aquariums
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums partnered with Vendor Centric to create a new benefit for its members, and a new revenue stream for the association.
The Garland Company
The El Paso Zoo had a roof that needed replacing so they turned to The Garland Company and AZA Smart Source (a Vendor Centric managed coop) for a creative solution that saved them more than $90,000.
The Telfair Museums were looking to streamline the ordering of office and facility supplies - and save money too. They turned to Staples Advantage and the Alliance Purchasing Cooperative (a Vendor Centric managed coop) to make it happen.
