Rite Aid has decided to extend its sourcing partnership with Intesource, an e-sourcing provider in the retail, drugstore, grocery and restaurant industries.
Rite Aid has leveraged Intesource's e-sourcing technology since 2009. The partnership helped the chain secure significant savings on both direct and indirect categories — including snow plowing services — and drove efficiencies across the entire supply chain.
The retailer uses Intesource's sourcing experts as an extension of its own e--sourcing team. By taking on complicated events and special projects that require additional resources, Intesource enables Rite Aid to invest its internal resources on sourcing more categories and securing additional savings.
