Welcome to the very first episode of ProctoCast.

A bi-weekly show making procurement more fun and less formal, while delivering valuable content to procurement professionals everywhere!

My guest on today’s show is Rich Ham, CEO of Fine Tune, a US-based service provider helping large businesses to deliver significant savings on categories often viewed as “nuisance” spend.

We dig in to 3 different examples:

  • Pest control
  • Waste management
  • Laundry services and workwear

All of these are categories usually managed locally at site level, and rarely touched by corporate procurement.

We look at why there are so many savings hidden in plain sight in these “unsexy” categories.

Listen and learn how we got to the point where suppliers can so easily pull the wool over our eyes when it comes to slipping in cost increases and maximising their margins on this spend.

It may be the easiest couple of hundred thousand in savings you’re likely to find, all by listening to a 15 minute ProctoCast!
