AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is bringing members savings through a new affinity partnership with AICC member, Procure Analytics.
Procure Analytics, a group purchasing consultancy that manages indirect categories for more than 1,000 member companies with $1.5 billion in controlled spend, can offer members strategic sourcing, cost reduction, and tail spend management.
Procure Analytics was founded to address the complex challenges of a frequently ignored indirect spend category – Maintenance, Repair and Operations Supplies (MRO).
The nature of MRO supplies (millions of SKUs, thousands of individual transactions, hundreds of potential suppliers and the relatively small cost for individual products) make MRO an under-managed category within most organizations.
Procure Analytics has since broadened its portfolio of savings programs to address a number of other under-managed indirect spend categories including freight services, pallets, uniforms and rental garments, corporate travel, and many others.
