General Manager, Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin
I moved to work with Niall Kelly as purchasing director for our property as everything he delivers is linked with our hotel strategy. He provided a clear platform for the hotel to operate all our purchasing, manage our costs, supply management and data analytics, so we could make the correct purchasing decisions. Niall ensures we stay competitive and that we are always moving with the changing market. Niall is a skilled procurement manager that ensures we keep our costs in line whilst and that we always meet our customers’ needs and expectations. Windward Purchasing has made our purchasing process so much easier, and has managed to obtain much better pricing than we already had. We didn’t need to think for long to sign up to become a hotel partner. Windward manage our supplier contracts, contract pricing and present these to our buyers in an easy to use e-procurement platform, which make the whole procurement process so much easier and ensures our hotel is compliant to buying from nominated suppliers at agreed contracted prices. On top of that they return us a rebate bonus yearly.
