“Procurex worked with us on all aspects of the auction process, from supplier identification and contract review right through to the actual auction. They told us what to expect and took the guess work out of the process. The savings generated opened up other commodity areas for us to pursue. To date, we have completed several auctions, from fleet to office supplies, all resulting in additional savings and better products. Procurex is becoming an extension to
Procurement Services, providing us with an extra set of eyes and expertise as well as real savings.”
