Maintenance, Repairs and Operations (MRO) in commercial buildings has two components:
Labor is often independent contractors who are a challenge to manage, measure and control—which leads to higher costs.
Materials are frequently purchased from hundreds of different suppliers instead of your preferred suppliers, also leading to higher costs.
Qmerit helps improve efficiencies and lower costs by streamlining and optimizing the way your employees purchase materials and manage your contractor network.
We all want to buy products and services that are the highest quality our budget will allow. The challenge is, how do we do that objectively?
Qmerit Marketplace is a consumer-like purchasing platform that makes buying parts and materials fast and simple. We can easily host your preferred suppliers, giving employees a single place to shop for all their purchases. We also alert them when a "Best Value" item is found.
Best Value Finder™ alerts employees while online shopping when it finds an exact match or similar item of better value from one of your preferred suppliers. Now you finally have an automated way to control rogue and maverick spending.
By only including your preferred suppliers in Qmerit Marketplace, you can drive more spend to these suppliers and use this increased spend to negotiate additional discounts. Best Value Finder™ catches rogue spending while employees' shop, adding to your spend volume by directing them to your preferred suppliers.
Qmerit tracks search and buying behaviors, as well as compliance rates, by employee, location, and region. Instantly know who is abiding by procurement policies and who has gone rogue. We also provide reports on money saved and money lost due to purchasing compliance.
Qmerit brings order to the chaos of managing independent contractors by enabling your contractors to upload all their licenses, insurance, and other credentials; and keep them up-to-date. Their information becomes centralized so you can quickly find the best performing contractors, initiate electronic bids, and have complete visibility into their performance.
Qmerit ensures all your contractors’ credentials and information is centralized so you know exactly can quickly find the best performing contractors, initiate electronic bids, and have complete visibility into their performance.
A 3-bid process is proven to save money. Qmerit uses an entirely digital 3-bid process that connects your employees to the highest performing contractors in your network. Contractors seamlessly submit digital quotes and you choose the winner electronically based on their price and QCI™ score.
Our exclusive Qmerit Contribution Index™ (QCI) measures the real-time performance of your contractors. We perpetually calculate a QCI™ score of 0–1,000 for each of your contractors to identify the best and worst performers, so you have complete visibility into their performance.
