Streamlined purchasing for a 141 location physical rehabilitation network
“The time Negotiatus saves me is a priceless gift!”
Liz Windle, Facilities & Purchasing Coordinator, PRN
140+ and counting!
New locations opened in the last 6 months
Line level spend visibility
Monthly cash savings
In August of 2020, PRN moved forward with Negotiatus to do just that. With the support of Negotiatus’ customer success team, PRN began rolling out the platform to each of its locations. Instead of Liz manually doing the purchasing for the entire organization, Negotiatus empowered each location to do it’s own purchasing.
Liz credits Negotiatus intuitive interface and ease of use to the successful roll-out. “When our centers started using the platform the overall feedback was, ‘this is so easy!’ Ease of use was an important deciding factor in using Negotiatus,” Liz explains.
In addition to using Negotiatus for purchasing, PRN also began leveraging the Consolidated Billing feature to simplify payments and closing the books at month’s end.
Since implementing Negotiatus, Liz has felt a huge impact not only on her own day-to-day work, but PRN as a whole. In her words, “having Negotiatus to manage our ordering has helped me evolve in my role with PRN because I have time to be able to assist our company in larger projects to grow our network of physical therapy centers. The time Negotiatus saves me is a priceless gift!”
Simplified AP process
In addition to the time saved on purchasing, Consolidated Billing has made a material impact on PRN’s Finance department as well. Liz notes, “Negotiatus has also made it easier for our Accounts Payable team to manage our monthly spend. Instead of tracking down endless purchase orders, we now get one single monthly invoice breaking down our spend by location.”
On top of all the time savings, between cash back and Negotiatus’ strategic sourcing, PRN is getting about $3,000 per month in cash savings. When you combine the hard cash savings with the time savings, it’s clear Negotiatus is “absolutely” having a positive impact on PRN.
