Primo Water: Partnering to enhance savings tracking, and to improve and optimize the overall sourcing process
Primo Water Corporation, a leading provider of sustainable drinking water solutions in North America and Europe, announced in 2021 it had partnered with SpendHQ (Per Angusta at the time) to improve and optimize the overall sourcing process.
Led by veteran Chief Procurement Officer, Mercedes Romero, and VP of Global Procurement, Alan J. Rice, Primo Water will use the sourcing pipeline management and savings tracking solution to support their efforts of sustainable sourcing. Primo was looking to replace manual processes with a more intuitive solution that would allow for enhanced tracking and provide robust reporting. They will be leveraging SpendHQ’s technology to automate the reporting process and eliminate those manual efforts.
Said Mr. Rice: “After an extensive search to find a solution that could help us track our savings pipeline and report savings accurately, we discovered [SpendHQ]. Previously, we had a manual process to manage and track our sourcing and savings projects.”

Rice, VP of Global Procurement, Primo Water Corporation
Our team worked actively with Primo Water to deploy their solution, and Primo Water uses the solution as a global asset for procurement to amplify their savings tracking and reporting capabilities.
