We’ve recently seen a huge growth in interest from clients who want to manage their tail-end spend better. Tail-end spend refers to the large volume of low value, unclassified transactions that aren’t strategically covered by corporate contracts.
Where the NHS Nationally Contracted Products (NCP) initiative is focused on driving incremental savings at sub category levels, our ‘bigger picture’ approach is focused on reducing lifetime consumption by reducing volumes.
There’s quite a bit of noise and confusion around what Managed Print is. It’s not surprising that the term means different things to different people. That’s because companies that provide ‘Managed Print’ can offer very different services.
If you wince when you review your annual spend on office supplies, then rest assured you’re not alone. The majority of enterprises and organisations, irrespective of their size, are overspending. The problem is most don’t know how to reduce their costs and where to start.
Whether you’re running a single printer or copier or a fleet of hundreds, you want a seamless and cost effective service from every machine. Over the years we’ve saved countless companies, organisations and NHS Trusts literally thousands of pounds.
A case study on implementation of a Fully Managed Service of Office Supplies for South of England Procurement Services (SoEPS).
For NHS Trusts looking to reduce costs and drive efficiencies, managing your print and copier environment more effectively can pay dividends. What do we know about it? We specialise in transformational procurement solutions and currently work with 30 NHS Trusts, including Acute, Community and Mental Health Trusts.
Clares awarded Babcock International Limited a 3 year contract to consolidate office product spend over many different product areas with a minimum contract value of over 12.6 million.
Clares, who now supply over 60 NHS Trusts won the national GO Small Business/Third Sector Engagement Initiative of the Year Award jointly with their customer Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust at the GO Excellence in Public Procurement Awards.
