THE STORY

Not waiting for a potential problem to become a more serious issue, a Director of Maintenance started proactively planning for on-site team safety needs. One of the top priorities identified was to protect site level team members from unproperly discarded needles by residents.

The Director of Maintenance turned to his Buyers Access Account Manager to lead a comprehensive specific sourcing effort. After discussing desired safety and product requirements, our team contacted multiple supplier partners to source the unique need, and negotiated substantial savings utilizing a bid and bulk purchase process.
