WETHERBY, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ARCOP, Inc., the national supply chain cooperative for Arby’s Restaurant Group, is extending its partnership with PROACTIS, a global Spend Control and eProcurement solution provider. In the past six years, PROACTIS sourcing services have led to more than $14M in savings for ARCOP’s member community across both direct and indirect spend areas.
“Our co-op members rely on us to drive down costs, establish healthy supplier relationships and deliver continual process improvements that make them more profitable,” said Keith Anderkin, Senior Vice President of Procurement at ARCOP. “The white glove treatment through which PROACTIS’ team of experts provides its robust sourcing services enables us to deliver on this promise.”
The national supply chain cooperative leverages PROACTIS’ sourcing technology and services to get a consolidated view of procurement data and streamline the RFI and RFP process, which dramatically increases the number of sourcing events it can run. With PROACTIS, ARCOP has uncovered meaningful savings across a wide range of sourcing categories.
“The food service industry is incredibly competitive. Between rising food prices, fluctuating consumer preferences and stagnant industry growth, no restaurant business is immune to the pressure,” said Brian Miller, VP of Services, PROACTIS. “Restauranteurs recognise a holistic sourcing strategy can help them thrive by capturing new value across strategic spend areas and investing the savings back into the business. ARCOP has proven itself a leader in this charge.”
PROACTIS specialises in helping organisations take the waste out of all their non-payroll spend to deliver greater bottom-line value. We deliver technology solutions and associated services that help them transform the way they buy and pay for all types of goods and services to eliminate wasted time, money and talent throughout the business.
