Using our services, Fortune 500s (and mom-and-pops) have saved thousands.
Acclaim's business model is based upon delivering convenience, cost-efficiency and time savings to our customers. We are not an intermediary or "middle man" that extracts unreasonable profit at our clients' expense.
Leading experts agree: outsourcing eliminates many hidden in-house costs.
Based on numerous studies (by respected firms including PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Aberdeen Group), utilizing e-procurement services such as Acclaim can net estimated savings of $39-$74 per item ordered. Plus our service includes customer care in addition to procurement and order aggregation services, so you can expect even greater savings.
The cost of placing an order includes hidden process costs such as the labor of frontline employees requesting a magazine or journal subscription, a manager authorizing that purchase request, and the purchasing personnel responsible for turning that requisition into an order.
In other words, ordering a publication directly from a publisher may cost you more in processing costs than the cost of publication (placing the order, issuing and negotiating a payment, requesting customer service, and more).
Doing it yourself may actually cost you an additional 50% or more.
Here's an example: if your organization spends $76 per order to process a purchase order for a $35 subscription, your overall cost would be $111. If you'd used Acclaim Subscriptions instead, your overall cost of the subscription would be $72-81 (depending whether we charge a fee on that specific publication), down from $111. That means your current acquisition costs may be 50% higher than necessary, or more. (Chances are, there are other things your company could do with that money!)
