Vendor Discount Reports

The largest discounts are usually only offered to a vendor’s best customers. Buyers may find it difficult to determine if the discount offered is typical or if a better deal can be negotiated. The Vendor Discount Report is designed to give procurement personnel, lessors, lessees, and department managers insights and guidance regarding current discount structures on a variety of categories of equipment in the marketplace.
