All businesses recognise that General office goods are an area of significant cost. However, they are often not reviewed frequently and can sit low on the business priorities list. This product range from carrier bags, checkout rolls, cleaning products, to office stationery can be huge with complex products specifications. They can be challenging to source and manage and the logistics involved can be costly and not to mention the odd product quality issues.
Significantly Reduce Costs
We see businesses wasting thousands of pounds on the wrong choice of products and through lack of visibility and control.Our review process has been developed to help you understand how to analyse and significantly reduce your costs in these areas.
We can enable your business to make true savings on the most basic products
The Sigma 6S General Office Review provides the information required to make informed decisions around your products and supply chain by targeting three key areas:
♦ Right Price –Is there a significant cost-saving opportunity, if so how much is that saving worth?
♦ Right Products –Are these the products that your business needs, are they fit for purpose and offer the best value?
♦ Right Source –Do you have transparency of end to end service levels, cost and spend information versus budgets and a robust management process?
The exercise is data-driven with an end to end approach to highlight general office goods usage and cost reductions. Using your last 6-12 months usage data our forensic review process quickly produces a savings analysis report. If recommendations are accepted the savings can be realised and measured almost immediately. We are so confident in the process, that if we do not identify savings in time and money, there is no charge for the review.
Our review process enables you to really understand what is the best value.
