Watermark picNew national purchasing agreements and the Determine Cloud Platform are transforming Watermark Retirement Communities’ procurement and plant operations.
By Jim Harris, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Media

Before Amee Foss joined Watermark Retirement Communities in 2017, the company’s contract management process was known by many in the organization as “the black hole.” 

“When I started here, all of the directors in our communities would submit contracts to an e-mail inbox for our contracts team to review,” she says. “There was no visibility, traceability, or control in the process.”

Schneider Logistics is not a firm that is set in its ways. Instead, “We’re a strong learning organization,” Senior Vice President and General Manager Erin Van Zeeland declares.

The company continuously looks for ways it can “take our customers to the next level,” she says. “We have caring leadership that is absolutely invested in our people, and that translates in how we develop our customer relationships – we have passion to make shipping a competitive advantage for customers and to make their jobs easier.”

Based in Green Bay, Wis., the Schneider Logistics is a segment of Schneider National Inc., a premier trucking, intermodal and logistics company. Schneider Logistics itself offers brokerage (truckload, LTL and intermodal), supply chain solutions (consulting, procurement and network design/optimization) and Port Logistics (warehousing, transloading and port dray).
