Their Needs

JP Peltier, Director of Supply Chain and Materials Management, and Steven Kirk, OR Materials Management Buyer, are responsible for operational and financial activities of the supply chain department at Saint Francis Healthcare System.

In previous business reviews with vendors, they ran into a problem with limited benchmarking data with the available GPO benchmarking tool. Some of their main category vendors utilized less mainstream product lines, which meant that Kirk and Peltier did not have comparative pricing for these products. This proved to be a challenge when trying to convince a vendor that their price is out of index.
