    opening quote

    “When first approached by CenterPoint Group, my resources were stretched and I was doubtful there was a lot of opportunity in Office Supplies. We were buying significantly below forecast and had already achieved 25% reduction two years prior … CenterPoint achieved another double digit percentage reduction, negotiated renewal terms that significantly exceeded my expectations, and built in audit processes to guard against any savings leakage or price creep over time … I look forward to working with CenterPoint again in the future.”

    opening quote

    “Vince was able to provide TOTAL with a creative approach to saving TOTAL money while adhering to some difficult limitations we placed on CenterPoint throughout the process. CenterPoint was able to come up with creative ways of addressing our concerns, meet our needs and save TOTAL ~15% from our baseline spend with this office supply company, and all the while create a reporting transparency that did not exist before with this supplier. I would partner with Vince again in the future, if the opportunity arose. He was professional and knew his business with great detail and provided the results promised!”

    opening quote

    “We contracted CenterPoint mainly because our internal resources were stretched thin and we needed the extra hands. Once we were underway with the RFQ, CenterPoint’s team managed the entire process and ensured all areas were covered with a level of expertise that surpassed what we could have achieved by keeping the project in-house. Our current supplier requested we extend the contract for a minimal 7% reduction, and through the assistance and expert guidance that CenterPoint provided us we achieved a 31% overall reduction.”
