Who are our ideal customers?

SMEs that manufacture, source, assemble and supply physical products, along with businesses from the Education, Care Home and Hospitality sectors are our primary target market, however we have extensive knowledge and experience that may well benefit other businesses too. You may not yet have the budget to employ a full time purchasing and supply chain expert, but you could possibly benefit from an experienced “fractional” purchasing professional for a small proportion of the cost. We are here to help you procure goods and services that support and optimise your business:

At the right cost and quality.

From the reputable and legitimate suppliers.

To your required specifications.

From the appropriate geographic location.

Applying optimised systems and processes.

Using formal Agreements.

To achieve your business requirements and metrics.

From optimised stocks, stored at the right place.

To achieve customer requirements reliably and repeatedly.
