Eliminates Middleman Costs
Brokers and business process outsourcers (BPO) serve as sales agents, or middlemen, between vendors they represent and the end buyer. They tack on a fee, although the amount is usually hidden, that buyers pay for services. Plus, middlemen charge vendors up to five levels of percentage fees, or about 49%, including commissions (10%), prompt pay discounts (2%), invoice discounts (7%), volume discounts (15%) and rebates (15%), adding significant hidden cost.
Brings Middleman Secrets to Light
Middlemen give orders to vendors with whom they have a relationship and with whom they extract an agreement that keeps the real price a secret. Vendors are not responsible to buyers, and buyers often do not know who is really producing their projects. This separation keeps buyers in the dark, so that they do not discover the real cost of services and materials. Middlemen own the relationships and control the cost, quality and schedule.
