PLANO, Texas - A.T. Kearney, the global management consulting subsidiary of EDS, today announced that The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company Inc. has signed a contract with A.T. Kearney Procurement Solutions for the use of its eSourcing negotiations technologies and services. The contract includes access to the eBreviate RFP and Auction technologies, as well as the Supply Market Solutions tool, a Web-based resource for intellectual capital, content and methodologies on strategic sourcing.
"We are privileged to be working with a company like A&P, whose goal is to use our technologies to cut costs and improve their profits," said Michael Sorensen, VP of worldwide sales and marketing, A.T. Kearney Procurement Solutions. "In our early days, some retail customers -- and particularly those that sold perishable goods -- had difficulty seeing how they could use eSourcing technologies to lower their costs, and hence were slower in adopting them. A&P is joining a group of clients who now see the impact that strategic sourcing tools can have on their bottom line."
