Our Mission

To enable transportation companies to save more money across all direct and indirect products and services they buy every day to operate their business, and to do so in a more efficient and effective manner through our total spend management procurement solutions.

Our Value Proposition

Business to consumer (B2C) and Business to business (B2B) purchasing generally differ in the level of controls associated with the buying process. A B2C purchasing process is designed to be easy for a casual user to visit a site, find a product, and buy that product. A B2C website will likely include features like most popular products or “users ultimately bought” products that attempt to drive the user in a certain direction. The most striking difference is that a B2C website requires no training to use. By contrast, a B2B purchasing process requires more control. The procurement organization works hard to negotiate with suppliers for products at the best possible price. Users need to see those products to ensure purchases are made on contract and that the company is realizing their negotiated savings. Unfortunately, most B2B purchasing technology is built for control, making buying complex for the casual user. CrownSource’s procure-to-pay technology is the best of both worlds. With all the controls of the B2B purchasing process, and the user-friendly interface of a B2C website, CrownSource helps improve user adoption and increase on-contract spending.

Our Approach

For most transportation companies – big and small – constantly changing market conditions, as well as complex purchasing functions, pose an opportunity for significant savings through improved process efficiencies and enhanced price negotiations.  By employing the right, proven approach, savings of up to 40% can be achieved.  CrownSource delivers multiple cost reduction procurement solutions to best meet the needs of any sized fleet.

Our Group Purchasing offering focuses on small-to-midsized transportation companies.  Through decades of sourcing expertise, combined with the collective buying power of our large and rapidly growing customer network, we deliver national account discounted prices on fuel, tires, fleet parts, fleet maintenance shop supplies, facility maintenance products, safety & regulatory products, and all the indirect supplies a transportation company purchases every day to operate its business.  Our customers gain access to these deep discounts through our eCommerce Marketplace, an easy-to-use, one-stop shopping experience with more than 4 million products and services from market-leading suppliers and nationwide dealers.

For large fleet companies, our custom procure-to-pay technology system and procurement best-practice sourcing and negotiation offerings transforms how they manage and control their spend.  Through these custom solutions, a large transportation company will streamline, standardize, and automate its requisition, approval, purchase order creation and transmission, invoicing, two-way match audit, and settlement processes.  This solution is custom tailored to best meet the specifications of any large transportation company with multiple locations.  The end-to-end functionality of this solution saves companies more money across their entire procurement strategy.
