eSupply Systems LLC, the leading e-procurement and spend management platform for the multi-family industry, has been selected by Caviness & Cates Property Management to help manage their procurement of supplies. Adding the Fayetteville area portfolio further expands eSupply Systems’ presence in North Carolina.
Caviness & Cates’ properties are located throughout the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area, stretching from Spring Lake south to Hope Mills.
“Caviness & Cates is a hands-on, forward-thinking company that truly understands the benefits and controls that an e-procurement system provides,” said Keu Zafar, president and co-founder of eSupply Systems. “We are excited with the way the Caviness & Cates team has embraced eSupply Systems and chose to quickly roll out our Purchasing Intelligence solution to all their properties. In addition to helping standardize and control the supplies purchased, they are receiving lower pricing on many of their supplies from being part of the eSupply Systems GPO.”
“The whole implementation process - from the execution of the contract to the initial onsite training - took less than one month,” added Zafar. “The increased productivity at their communities and immediate reduction in spend was the driving force for their full commitment to our solution, which was clearly evident in the speed of the initial pilot and the subsequent full rollout to the rest of the portfolio.”
For Caviness & Cates, the selection of eSupply Systems provides the opportunity to reduce supply spend, increase spend visibility and budget adherence, while consolidating suppliers across their multi-family portfolio.
“Since implementing the program, we have realized substantial savings in both our maintenance expenses and our monthly mileage costs,” said Bill Nye, CEO of Caviness & Cates. “100% of our properties operate below their budgets and our people are spending more time at the community as opposed to leaving to purchase supplies.”
