Wins from the Road: Improving the Health and Wellness of FF&E Spend
With modern materials and designs already selected, the multibillion-
The retailer planned to roll out dozens of rebranded stores within the next year, so time was at a premium. And with intentions to remodel hundreds of additional locations in the following years, a scalable, turn-key sourcing solution was urgently needed to make sure the transformative project was executed with the best rates without sacrificing quality or adjusting the brand's specifications.
Enter the LogicSource team led by Procurement Manager and FF&E (Fixtures, Facilities and Equipment) category expert, Jen Fazio. "We understood the importance of maintaining specific details and materials as they roll out the new designs across their stores," said Fazio. In service of that end, the team conducted an in-depth analysis of the retailer's Store FF&E program and found rate inefficiencies across several FF&E categories that were impacting their bottom line and consequently slowing the pace of the rebranded store rollouts.
LogicSource did what it does best. By leveraging $5.6 billion of cross-portfolio spend, real-time market intelligence, and strategic supplier relationships, the team secured bids offering savings across key FF&E categories, including Millwork (56%), Exterior Signage (30%), Lighting (26%) and Flooring (20%). The result was 44% annual FF&E savings and a procurement solution that put the retailer's rebranding project back on track.
LogicSource was purpose-built to drive profit improvement for their clients through better buying. LogicSource focuses exclusively on the sourcing and procurement of goods and services not-for-resale, which typically represents 20% of a company's revenue and the most significant area of spending inefficiency.
