PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - After securing millions of dollars in new savings in the past four years, Rite Aid, one of the country's largest drugstore chains, has renewed its sourcing partnership with Intesource, the go-to e-sourcing provider in the retail, drug store, grocery and restaurant industries. 

Since 2009, Rite Aid has leveraged Intesource's e-sourcing technology and category expertise to tackle its most complex and strategic categories. The partnership helped Rite Aid secure significant savings on both indirect and direct categories -- including snow plowing services and print advertising -- and drove significant operational efficiencies across the entire supply chain.

Rite Aid relies heavily on 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.

"E-sourcing needs to be a primary driver of growth and profitability for retailers," said Len Kaplan, VP of Sales at Intesource. "Many organizations shy away from sourcing complex categories because they don't have the internal resources and necessary experience to succeed. Rite Aid, on the other hand, uses our services to consistently tackle complex categories head-on, and has seen immense value and savings as a result."
