Challenge and Opportunity

A privately owned global procurement and selling group wanted to enhance its supplier programs for its customers.



  • Consolidation in the printing industry resulted in bureaucratic and dysfunctional procurement processes.
  • Our team developed an RPA tool to automate the process of purchasing supplies for the client’s customers by creating buying groups based on similar purchase demands.
  • This tool ensured that the client’s customers could be on a more competitive footing with larger competitors who had stronger buying power.


The tool was able to successfully negotiate lower prices for the client’s 377 customers representing over $4 billion in procurement sales.
