Nearly all companies purchase office supplies products. For small companies that don’t have dedicated facilities or procurement managers this role is often left to a receptionist to organise. With other responsibilities and little time to deal with suppliers directly, many don’t have time to understand the current office supplies deal in its entirety. This type of indirect supply could be costing your business thousands per annum.
In preparation for a new Stationery Forum website, You Could Save has carried out several free price checks and showed savings between 14%-30%. This is for services such as general stationery, furniture and IT consumables. Taking the lowest savings of 14% and the client’s spend of £5,000 per annum, this will save the company £700.00 by the end of 2010. Although small, this process took us one phone call, one email and no face to face meetings. If an employee found £700 on your office floor would you expect them to hand it in?! Imagine if your annual spend was £80,000!
If you would like to find savings with your current office supplies pricing structure please feel free to contact us and ask any questions.
Suppliers can also write an article about how they are saving people money and incorporate any tips they think the public might like to hear about. This will further promote the working practices within the network of companies already listed on the site. (If approved).
Many senior individuals within organisations now view our articles as being more effective than traditional paid advertising. The articles on our site gain a broader audience faster and a more immediate response to the services and messages you offer. This will give your company the chance to gain those all important recommendations.

You will not only be able find “Answers” but ask “Questions” about anything related to office supplies. We are hoping this will reduce the amount of cold calls made by office supplies companies and free up your time to save money.
