FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Through continued technology advancements and immense growth, Blend Supply has fueled reinvestment into employee job satisfaction. In 2022 Blend Supply implemented order automation for 36 client accounts and AP automation for 24 vendors and servicers, saving the team thousands of man hours and increased cost savings for clients.
“Transitioning to automated support for repetitive and mundane tasks, has freed our teams to do what they do best – providing outstanding customer service,” said Executive Vice President Clif Wiegand.
Blend Supply’s unique capacity in both Aerospace and Industrial markets, allows for leveraging total solutions support from an extensive knowledge base.
“When a job requires specialty paint and services, you must rely on a paint expert to provide all potential needs. We provide partners with process improvements through hands on training, product demos, near-site vendor inventory and warehousing, fewer changes, faster completions, and better results, which eliminate production time and waste”, said President Clint Broadie.
Not only has Blend Supply documented over $50 million in costs savings to clients through these process improvements, but price stability protection is delivered to all client partners.
