In a world where your card program should be contributing positively to the bottom line we constantly find negotiated contracts with pricing that is well above the current market or a contract that hasn’t been negotiated for more favorable terms for years.

Cornerstone is Here to Help

Cornerstone can bring clarity to the opaque vendor market. Our negotiators have reviewed and modeled thousands of vendor proposals. We know how to make sense of the complexity.

Our goal is to deliver a competitively priced contract to your institution for the best fit product mix.


 Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Whether you are ready to make a change or  even if you want to remain with your current vendor it is always important to get a competing bid from market.  That’s the experience that Cornerstone provides to the process.
