The Challenge:

Client was concerned about uniform supplier invoicing, thinking that the pricing had increased from the original contract.


Our Solution:

StrategicSource utilized their Audit and Benchmarking service to audit many months of the supplier invoices back against the original supplier contract. The audit uncovered multi-year overcharges totaling almost $18K which were presented to the supplier for recovery. Additonally, StrategicSource benchmarked the current pricing against market and found significant opportunities to reduce costs even further.


Results:

The uniform supplier agreed with the StrategicSource Audit findings and issued a check to the client for the full amount of
overcharges. StrategicSource was also asked to quote this category for the first time with other suppliers to achieve competitive pricing and business terms which was also accomplished yielding multi-year cost savings.
