Master Negotiator Launched by Source One, the First Self Service Sourcing Site
Another “First” for Source One with the launch of MasterNegotiator.com, the web’s first self-service strategic sourcing site.
November, 2008, Willow Grove, PA
Always the innovator, Source One launches another industry-changing program to help sourcing professionals.
Founded in 1992, Source One was the first Procurement Service Provider to offer a 100% contingency-based strategic sourcing consulting solution.
Over the next two decades, Source One was the first to launch free RFP and Reverse Auctions on the web, Free Contract Management, Free online web stores for suppliers, Free Purchasing Tools to the leading supplier portal ThomasNet, and is now the first to launch a supplier-cooperative self-service sourcing site, MasterNegotiator.com, geared to businesses of all sizes that want to handle their sourcing requirements on their own.

Source One Management Services, LLC has launched a new supplier-cooperative website, MasterNegotiator.com, that assists small and medium businesses in identifying savings opportunities for common products and services that they are purchasing.
The site provides buyers with pre-negotiated contracts and insider agreements with one leading national suppliers in each category.
MasterNegotiator.com offers special discounts categories such as the following:
- Office Supplies
- Merchant account payment processing,
- Outsourcing Services (such as healthcare billing, call centers and claims processing)
- Local and long distance telecommunications services,
- Outsourced Manufacturing,
- Transportation and Freight
- Pest Control and Extermination Services
- Work Apparel and Uniforms
We have partnered with national suppliers to make available competitive supply agreements that businesses can contract and implement independently.
Master Negotiator is a self-service site for companies that have the ability to analyze their spend and implement their own contracts as well as those that do not want to engage a full service Procurement Service Provider.
“MasterNegotiator.com is the natural progression for Source One’s service offering and it has been part of our strategic plan for years” said Steven Belli, CEO of Source One. Many companies have the resources to implement their own agreements and do not want to incur the costs of engaging with a procurement service provider.
Of course, Source One still provides their full service offering for larger organizations that have unique requirements, want help with analysis and implementation, lack resources or have higher spends or volumes and want help in getting agreements that are more competitive than those offered by Master Negotiator.
Getting started on MasterNegotiator.com is easy. Add the deals you are interested in to your shopping cart. After you check out, a representative from MasterNegotiator.com will contact you within 48 hours to review your information and get you connected with the contracted supplier for the category that you are interested in. There are no costs to the buyer for using the agreements on the site.
All of the costs of MasterNegotiator.com are funded by the suppliers that sponsor the site.
MasterNegotiator.com continues to look for best-in-class suppliers that can provide excellent savings opportunities for businesses. The website has new deals in the following categories coming soon:
- Office Equipment
- Computers and Computer Accessories
- Maintenance, Repair, Operational Supplies
- Recruiting Services
Master Negotiator.com is dedicated to business owners, office managers, and purchasing professionals that are looking for a quick and easy way to identify and obtain and continuously retain savings in the products and services that organizations purchase daily.
This site is free, easy to use, and quick to implement in your organization.
