Through one simple process, suppliers such as Raymac Surveys and FastTrac become prequalified for multiple client projects quickly and efficiently and gain access to Avetta’s unique Marketplace
Orem, Utah, 13 Feb 2020 — Suppliers who join Avetta® are part of a network of more than 95,000 Contractors and Suppliers who achieve compliance quickly and efficiently, qualify for more job, and save time and money through the Avetta Connect™ Platform and its Marketplace. Being part of the Avetta Network helps suppliers, such as Raymac Surveys and FastTrac, become discoverable through the Connect Platform and gain more visibility to the 450+ clients who are looking for qualified, vetted and compliant contractors to complete work for their companies.
With improved visibility through the Avetta Network, suppliers showcase the competitive advantages of doing business with them. Further, they gain access to the Avetta Marketplace that can save them time and money on products and services they use every day to grow their business.
Once suppliers join the Avetta Network, they receive tools and information that helps them set up a complete profile demonstrating their capabilities and compliance for potential clients. Suppliers can also subscribe to Avetta’s Vetify service to receive dedicated, specialised assistance through an onboarding process to accelerate the process.
“Avetta simplifies the process of qualifying for jobs for multiple clients,” said Richard Parke, senior vice president, supplier services. “One process can lead to multiple opportunities with potential clients. A supplier can showcase its proficiency and safety record through the Connect platform to any company looking for workers in its industry. Suppliers also save money by participating in the Avetta Marketplace, where they can access major discounts on services they use every day.”
Raymac Surveys, a land surveying company in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, recently joined the Avetta Network. The company is now visible to the construction and utility companies that use Avetta to manage their suppliers. As part of the supplier registration process, Avetta verified Raymac Surveys’ insurance policies, safety record, certifications, and other requirements relevant to the company’s target industries and projects. With just one process, Raymac Surveys’ requirements documentation is available to multiple clients and prospects — no need to repeat the process for each individual company.
Through the Avetta Network, Raymac Surveys also was able to find cybersecurity insurance and adjust its general liability amounts for certain clients. The company was able to save 40% on its premiums for Group Health insurance through Avetta’s Suppliers’ Group Benefits Association Programme.
“Our membership in the Avetta Supplier Network gives prospective customers easy access to all of our information,” said Mark Erion, president, Raymac Surveys. “Companies can quickly get a clear picture of what we're about without having to do a lot of research and having us fill out a lot of questionnaires — all that work is done in advance.”
Suppliers save money by joining Avetta. Through Avetta’s partnerships with industry-leading insurance providers, suppliers can save money while increasing coverage. Avetta connected FastTrac Telecom Services to USA Telecom, which offers exclusive rates for Avetta clients in the telecommunications sector. USA Telecom worked with FastTrac to procure both a better and more cost-effective insurance plan.
Jeff Berkenmeier, COO of FastTrac, commented about the process, “Our yearly Certificate of Insurance cost dropped about $10,000 and helped us get off to a great start this year.”
Avetta’s Marketplace also allows suppliers to purchase discounted safety products and safety-related services. Through Avetta’s exclusive insurance partners, suppliers can also realise significant savings on insurance. Avetta was the first in the industry to offer a “Marketplace” of these kinds of value-added services. The best-in-class offerings and exclusive discounts include companies such as BLR, DISA Global Solutions, FleetSharp by Agilis Systems, HUB International, SafetyCulture, Safety Resourcing, UL, Universal Specialty Group, Insurate, USA Telecom Insurance Services, Gallagher and others.
