ReactorNet Wins BoSS Award
Software-as-a-Service e-Procurement Solution Provider Enables Organizations to Improve Operations and Reduce Costs
Wellesley, Mass. - October 6, 2010 - THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market, announced today that ReactorNet has been named the latest winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
The BoSS Awards is an ongoing program which recognizes SaaS companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.
ReactorNet provides a SaaS-based e-Procurement (E-PRO) platform capable of streamlining the purchase process, ensuring supplier collaboration, delivering paperless A/P and reducing spending across the board.
An example of the business benefits of ReactorNet's E-PRO solution is AMC (American Multi-Cinema) Theatres, the second largest movie theatre chain in North America. AMC has used ReactorNet's platform to reduce its procurement costs and give it a competitive advantage in the marketplace. AMC specifically implemented ReactorNet's Cinema Solutions, an industry-specific e-procurement solution powered by the ReactorNet E-PRO engine. It achieved the following measureable business benefits:
- Eliminated "maverick" spending by 1-3%
- Decreased invoice processing cost by 90% compared to manually processed invoices
- Saved 1% in overbills / duplicate payments
- Reduction in salaries of $25-50,000
- Helped to achieve SOX compliance
In addition, AMC has been able to source over 50% of its purchasing processes in ReactorNet's E-PRO solution and move forward with EDI invoicing.
It is for these reasons that ReactorNet has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner. A summary of the company's winning BoSS Award submission can be found at http://www.saas-showplace.com/awardSummary.php?key=1375.

"It is essential to more tightly manage corporate expenditures in today's tough economic climate," stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace.
