Leading Marketing Agency Drives Growth, Process Efficiencies and Cost Savings with Strategic Procurement Partnership

George P. Johnson Experience Marketing, the world’s leading experiential marketing agency, has partnered with BravoSolution, a leading global strategic procurement solution provider, to automate and enhance sourcing processes. George P. Johnson (GPJ) deploys the BravoAdvantage Sourcing and Supply Value Management (SVM) platforms and works closely with BravoSolution’s services team to ensure smooth implementation and adoption and successfully onboard and qualify suppliers.

“Our ultimate goal in finding a new procurement provider was to rethink the way we buy third party services. We started a review back in 2015 as the agency had seen some great growth over several years. We saw this as an opportunity to take a fresh look at our existing procurement system and processes,” said John Staniszewski, senior procurement manager at George P. Johnson Experience Marketing. “To us, a new system and successful relationship required both a strong global presence and sophisticated yet easy-to-use enterprise-wide technology that would streamline processes across our entire business and give us the ability to conduct side-by-side comparison reports to drive additional cost savings.”

GPJ is using BravoAdvantage to create a centralized database for self-registration and supplier documentation and compliance, including GPJ’s ethics policy, master service and non-disclosure agreements, insurance documentation and minority certifications. Since the launch of the system in January 2016 BravoSolution has enabled GPJ to scale the implementation of the new processes rapidly, which is already driving significant savings.

“Procurement excellence starts with getting everyone on the same page, both from a process and adoption standpoint,” said Jim Wetekamp, chief executive officer at BravoSolution. “When teams have the tools they need to streamline processes and make their lives simpler, the adoption process is much quicker and the organization’s ability to provide impactful value for both their business and clients is much greater.”
