An industry leading wholesaler in the Dayton area, with a focus in the residential and commercial construction, and industrial supplies and equipment market segment, has a unique problem that needs to be addressed. The company’s specialized setup - with multiple local companies sourcing heavily through the sourcing wing of the company, but not obligated to use the sourcing division for any of their purchases - creates a direct opportunity to enhance purchasing efficiency at the local level, and operational efficiency at the sourcing level, by incentivizing -- not penalizing -- the local companies to submit accurate orders to the sourcing division.
