Saving $75,000 in strategic sourcing and gaining complete visibility
"Negotiatus gives us the ability to scale the business instead of having to focus on procurement."
Catherine Zapoll, Operations & Compliance Manager, NY Kids Club
Yearly strategic sourcing savings
On-catalog spend visibility
NY Kids Club is a private child enrichment space, has 19 locations spread out across New York City, and requires reliable delivery of office and cleaning supplies along with toys, books, and other materials necessary for learning. They also utilize a dynamic catalog of products that change over the seasons to keep children engaged.
Negotiatus provided NYKC center directors with a dashboard of approved products across all the 41 vendors they purchase from, with one cart to check out. Catherine says, “The first thing I tell them is ‘Have you ever shopped online? Then you can use Negotiatus.’ It’s a pre-approved list of vendors and items that they are allowed to buy from.”
"[There is] one place for us to go rather than 7 different tabs for 7 different vendors.... 100% of our supply ordering is done and visible through the Negotiatus dashboard.”
NYKC also realized the benefits of Negotiatus’ automatic sourcing engine, which found savings by optimizing the vendors from which products were fulfilled and leveraging relationships and volume in the Negotiatus network. Catherine says, “Between January 1st of 2018 and December 31st of 2018 we saved 75 thousand dollars.”
Everyday orders and mis-deliveries from any of their vendors were solved by the same, consistent team who understood NYKC’s intricacies “instead of a different person every time,” allowing Catherine and center directors to focus on expansion and giving children the best education and experience possible. “Negotiatus gives us the ability to scale the business instead of having to focus on procurement.”
