Gaining Advantages By Going Quickly To Market
Prior to partnering with Keelvar, CJLA’s procurement practices were very manual, spreadsheet-based, time-consuming, and slow. It took months to execute a large procurement event, which led to avoidance of such events altogether. With 78 customers for transportation management and more than 50 RFPs, the company has to think about a lot of stakeholder opinions and technology platforms when running procurement events.
By partnering with Keelvar, they were able to streamline the administrative aspects of bidding, making it easier for them to respond to procurement events. This allowed them to capture advantages quickly, whether the curve was trending up or down, thus creating a win-win strategy for both the company and their suppliers.
Since implementing sourcing optimization, CJLA has seen revenue growth and more value for their customers. Thanks to the technology, the customer was able to see value in large events that were once too cumbersome to manage and go to market more frequently.
