STEP ONE CONSULTATION
Doubtless you understand just as we do that a working relationship based solely on the bottom line has, at best, a precarious foundation. Any single item can always be sourced more cheaply from somewhere but the cost penalties associated with such a scatter-gun approach to procurement far outweigh the benefits. Cheapest rarely equals best value and often the lowest price comes with the penalty of questionable quality or second-rate service.
This is why we examine your requirements in minute detail and craft a tailored strategy to help your business. An in-depth consultation with a member of our highly experienced team will equip us to make the best possible recommendations for you.
During preliminary consultation we aim to identify:
Your motivation for considering a change of supplier.
The anticipated benefits that move will bring.
The internal procedures currently in place to create and place orders.
Specific preferences for ordering, delivery, invoicing and reporting.
Spend patterns and the particular needs of individuals and departments within the company.
