Foodbuy Selects BravoSolution for Sourcing and Contract Management

Group purchasing organization experience sparks five-year partnership

Chicago—Dec. 8, 2011—Foodbuy, the nation’s largest procurement organization specializing in food services, has selected BravoSolution, the spend analysis and eSourcing company, to power its sourcing and contracting operations.

Backed by BravoSolution’s sourcing, contracting and educational teams, Foodbuy will gain increased control over its spend, drive more profitable and efficient negotiations, improve contract planning and compliance and create consistent, company-wide procurement processes that address the organization’s unique sourcing challenges.

“We needed a partner that could offer us more than a software suite,” explained Tony Shearer, Chairman of Foodbuy. “BravoSolution has the know-how and insight to help us align the other two pieces of the puzzle—our members and how we work—in addition to a best-in-class supply management suite.”

After considering multiple providers, Foodbuy selected BravoSolution for the company’s comprehensive approach to supply management, which combines powerful tools, education and training with a talented and experienced staff. BravoSolution’s healthcare sourcing expertise and vast experience and successes working with group purchasing organizations sealed the deal.

“Companies nationwide rely on Foodbuy to cut costs and improve their procurement and sourcing outcomes, and in today’s volatile economy, every dollar saved counts,” said Kristian O’Meara, vice president at BravoSolution. “Our role is to enable their team to source and contract more effectively and deliver greater value to their customers by expanding the reach of their contract portfolio.”
