Giant Eagle partners with Proactis to enhance its private brand sourcing strategy

Proactis, a global Spend Control and eProcurement solution provider, today announced a partnership with Giant Eagle, Inc. as its strategic sourcing partner for the company’s private brands.

Giant Eagle, Inc. is one of the nation’s leading food, fuel and pharmacy retailers with more than 400 supermarket and convenience store locations. It selected Proactis to enhance its Giant Eagle brands program by improving and extending its current supplier network communications to ensure that it continues to deliver the best in quality and value for its customers.

After evaluating Proactis’ Sourcing Services through a proof of concept program offered by Proactis, Giant Eagle found that the managed services approach would maximise the efforts of its internal team and promote best practice that will ensure the Giant Eagle brand program is among the best in the industry.

“By enhancing our internal team with Proactis Sourcing Services, we will be able to dramatically increase the number of current and prospective suppliers we communicate with, ensuring that our customers only get the best when purchasing our Giant Eagle brand products,” said Brooke Hodierne, Senior Director of Own Brands. “With Proactis, my team will be freed up from the tactical time-consuming activities and can focus on other key initiatives.”

As a strategic sourcing partner, Proactis’ managed service approach supplements Giant Eagle’s current process to sourcing private brands by working side-by-side with the retailer’s Procurement team. Proactis provides value for the Giant Eagle team by creating and running its private brand sourcing events.

“We are proud of the trust Giant Eagle has placed in us,” stated Len Kaplan, Vice President Managed Sourcing Sales at Proactis. “It is a testament to our experience and ability to increase customer value by scaling internal procurement teams with our experts to maximise performance.”
