      Ensure you are set-up and connected with your Primary Distributor.

      Step 4 | Reduce Costs & Add Value

      The NICA Sysco Marketplace provides you with contract pricing and rebates. Take advantage of opportunities to reduce costs by:

      1. Accessing the contract pricing starting on day 1 which will show an immediate impact, reflected on invoices.
      2. Planning Quick Wins, a review of the top 5 items purchased in each category.
        Beverage, frozen, bakery, dairy, eggs, juices, coffee, paper items, disposables, can liners and etc.
        Coordinate with your distributor to identify savings opportunities over those purchased today. Next, go deeper until you complete the list of all key purchases.
      3. Reviewing the quarterly Compliance Reports that identify contracted items purchased compared to total purchases. The more purchased, the great the savings.
      4. Reviewing the Earning rebate reports which will be tracked and paid quarterly.
      5. Reviewing the latest programs and products listing of contracted items.
