Expanding from 25 to 50 locations in one year with Negotiatus
"We wouldn’t have been able to open the number of studios we have today."

Purchasing hours saved
Line-level spend visibility
[solidcore] is a health and wellness company offering a more personalized and “intensified” approach to pilates. Incredible popularity and massive effectiveness of the classes has spurred rapid growth since inception, with [solidcore] doubling its location count in the previous year alone to 50 locations.
For AP, the burden fell on an individual in finance to record each receipt, but no purchasing system meant the data wasn’t accessible to management. “We had multiple platforms and multiple vendors, and there was no easy way for us to track spend at the studio or aggregate level,” summarizes Charly Williams, also Regional Manager at [solidcore].
Negotiatus’ dedicated support also regularly assisted: “When I place a large new studio opening order, [my dedicated representative] always reaches out to confirm the first and last day packages should arrive, which is huge for our construction teams to know when we need to be on the ground unboxing it all.”
New location spend data became immediately accessible, Artemis says, “Now we can see exactly the amount spent for each studio, and at the line level if we need to," and summarizes, “Without Negotiatus and consolidated ordering we wouldn’t have been able to open the number of studios we have today.”
To Charly, Negotiatus’ benefits with recurring orders and processes is best summarized in two areas:
“Having everything in one place – from setting up the accounts, people, and cost centers to placing our orders with our vendors. It has made our processes simpler and gave us the ability to see all our spend at the product, location, and aggregate level.”
“Cost savings – in the past we didn’t know if we were looking at the most economical product, but now we know we are saving money on all our purchases wherever possible, and it adds up quickly.”
