YorBuy YM survey July 2012

  1. 1. YorBuy Survey of Yorkshire Mafia Members July 2012© YorBuy Limited 2012 All Rights Reserved www.yorbuy.net
  2. 2. YorBuy Yorkshire Mafia Survey July 2012 • A questionnaire was put to Yorkshire Mafia members in July 2012 • There were 242 responses and the feedback was extremely positive© YorBuy Limited 2012 All Rights Reserved www.yorbuy.net
  3. 3. YorBuy Yorkshire Mafia Survey July 2012 • The forum discussion that resulted from the questionnaire also provided some important feedback and insights, heres a sample of some of the many comments − Loving the idea! I’ll do the survey now! − Excellent idea and reflective of "Together we are Stronger“ − Feedback sounds a very good idea if it is balanced. But "I got X for price Y" isnt what Im looking for though. Trip Advisor is a good model....with both good and bad reviews. − Would rather use professional purchasing staff...rather than somebody who can just get a cheaper price ..... for B2B contracts it is the specification that needs to be understood and communicated ..rather than .. How much ?? − Great idea . Did the survey about 2 seconds after seeing this post. Make sure you do it ! • The results of the questionnaire are evaluated on the following pages© YorBuy Limited 2012 All Rights Reserved www.yorbuy.net

  10. 10. YorBuy Yorkshire Mafia Survey July 2012 • When asked, if there was anything else they would like to add, 66 of the 242 respondents contributed. Here is a small random sample of unedited (including typo’s) comments o Also be interested in whether any of organisations on the consortium are Social Enterprises.....as well as saving money also hits CSR button for Social Good etc..... so win win for me! o Annual purchasing spend is a guesstimate ! o As always, the response depends upon price and service. If they are not there, then I will not use such a consortium o As this is my space, Id like to offer to see what I can give back to Yorkshire and the Mafia, by giving some of my time and expertise at no charge - obviously needs defining better, but there you have it, in principle! o Be interested in how the contracts would be monitored and evaluated, what KPIs would be set etc; also if rebates are negotiated how these might be shared? Would there be a fee for joining the consortium and if so how would this be structured; for example, on spend level or other?© YorBuy Limited 2012 All Rights Reserved www.yorbuy.net
  11. 11. YorBuy Yorkshire Mafia Survey July 2012 • When asked, if there was anything else they would like to add, 66 of the 242 respondents contributed. Here is a small random sample of unedited (including typo’s) comments … continued o can I pitch for the insurance? possibly arrange YM branded products? o Can you please update your industry type list. I couldnt enter None of the Above so entered international Affairs, as vague as it is untrue There was a Training and Consultancy choice, no more o Depending on how you would like this to work YM could earn a commission on all transactions. If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know. Thanks, Peter o I think this would be commercial suicide for the Mafia o You didnt list my industry, I provide pet care services such as boarding, dog walking and pet sitting, so I chose the only related category - veterinary o Excellent questions!!© YorBuy Limited 2012 All Rights Reserved www.yorbuy.net
