Success Story:

Cole Chemical saved IBM $200,000 in the first two months of a contract by consolidating 300 IBM chemical suppliers at a campus-like facility. Chemicals from suppliers would arrive at the warehouse without proper purchase information which resulted in reorders, delays, and insurance hassles. Cole Chemical implemented standardized procedures resolving numerous shipping and invoicing issues.
