CenterPoint’s buying power for large ticket items like paper and toner has helped us reduce significant costs in this area. I would recommend CenterPoint as a very strong candidate to any enterprise looking to grow their diversity program without sacrificing on quality or price. ”

Global Electrical Products and Energy & Safety Solutions

“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.”

“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.”

“Legacy engaged CenterPoint Group over a year ago, to look at our indirect spend, mainly office supplies. Simply put, it was the best decision we made. CenterPoint and their team of experts took the time to walk us through the process as they did their in-depth review. They helped us stream-line our purchasing, but also reduced our overall spend by over 25%. They continue to be a valued partner and monitor our office supply while sharing new ideas and best practices. I would highly recommend CenterPoint and their team of experts..”

“I am the Office Manager of a medium sized, family owned business. This is the easiest ordering platform with the best prices that I have found in years. Office Depot and CenterPoint’s customer support is excellent, when we need them. Their paper and office supply pricing is the lowest we’ve seen, we no longer need to price-shop. As our company grows, I know we have a resource in CenterPoint to source the products we need and make sure we will get the best pricing for it.”
