What makes us different from simply ordering online or buying at retail level in the shops? We provide the full tail management service:
- Our stock holding capacity means items are always available when you need them
- National delivery with a local service – with 13 local branches rather than one centralised hub, we provide exceptional delivery with local knowledge and quick turnaround times
- We can deliver direct to your desktop – all we need you to do is ask us to set it up
In addition to the products within our catalogue, we can also offer a supplier management service. We can work as an extension of your procurement team to manage labour-intensive supply chains on your behalf.
Under this service, we’ll take on the management of your third party suppliers, making us your single point of contact for a wider range of products and services. This service is particularly effective for consolidating your ‘tail’ suppliers; those who account for a small amount of your procurement spend but who are large in number and disproportionately time-consuming to manage.
This professional Tail Management service could help you deal with up to 80% fewer suppliers, achieving cost and process benefits across your business. This streamlined supply chain will free up your staff to focus on the areas that really matter to you – for example frontline services or profit-generating activities.
The benefits include:
- A simpler process – One order, one invoice and one delivery
- Save space on-site – We’ll manage your stock-holding via our network
- Reduced carbon footprint – By receiving your goods on one delivery
- Economies of scale – Buy in bulk and we’ll manage your stock
