How to Increase Efficiency and Visibility in Corporate Services Spend

A Case Study on Optimizing Food & Beverage (F&B) Program Services

GEODIS is a global logistics company with over 140 locations across the United States. 40 people across the company regularly ordered food for employees, but each had a different ordering and tracking process. The absence of a mandate or a centralized purchasing system led to disorganization, wasted time, and a lack of reporting. GEODIS needed a way to organize all the company’s food spend into one place.  

The solution: an ezCater corporate account. The company’s food spend is now under one platform with a centralized ordering system, automated reporting, and access to over 100,000 restaurants nationwide. This solution has enabled greater visibility for company-wide food ordering and spending, with the additional benefit of several hours saved weekly. 

Category Management, Contract Managers, Supplier Discovery Leads, and, well, any buyer interested in corporate services spend, specifically food and beverage, may be interested in learning from this case study.
