There is not one thing to date OfficeTeam has not been able to provide, they offer that little bit extra, that something different.

OfficeTeam are truly the complete supplier – we  have evolved as a business and grown with them for over a decade.”

– Bensons for Beds

The Challenge

Bensons for Beds was ordering from various suppliers, which was time consuming and costly. With many different items being ordered from numerous suppliers, it was not only difficult for them to manage service levels, but they also had very little visibility and control over their business spend.

Our Solution

OfficeTeam offered Bensons for Beds a single source solution for all business services and products through its Tail Management service, incorporating everything from general office supplies through to uniforms and janitorial. This entailed reducing Bensons’ multiple suppliers down to just one supplier.

We actively work with stakeholders and procurement staff to keep costs low and provide continuous specialist services and advice. Regular Account Reviews are conducted providing clarity on expenses at any given time. This highlights regular spending patterns and visibility of expenditure across the business.
