An all-inclusive, managed services contract that comes with a guarantee to sell customers less has been launched by Banner.
The workplace supplies and services provider says it intends to shake up the marketplace with its new Management Fee purchasing model, built to give the highest levels of support and transparency to procurement professionals operating in rapidly moving sourcing and purchasing environments.
Banner aims to challenge the norm by offering a monthly cross-category all-inclusive service fee. The fee can be charged to central budgets and will help procurement professionals to demonstrate on-going savings by including a commitment to reduce spend throughout the life of the contract.
Designed to help streamline budgets, consolidate product categories and simplify the supply chain, the innovative purchasing model enables procurement professionals to add value, take more control and improve their contract management while enabling end users to buy what they need to ensure the smooth running of their workplace
Richard Costin, Banner Managing Director: "Years of partnership with the public and corporate sectors and procurement professionals across the UK and Ireland have given Banner an in-depth understanding of the most difficult issues that customers face. This has helped us to build responsive partnerships that achieve a balance between savings, quality and efficiency. The time is right to move the goalposts and give buyers a truly dynamic and transparent alternative.
"This will streamline the buying processes and make it far more focussed and efficient, for example by helping customers to prevent leakage by ensuring purchasing parameters are set to needs rather than wants. Procurement professionals can rationalise the product list and ensure people are buying wisely while still getting everything they need.
"Some areas of procurement can be a change-resistant area, but by embracing innovation and transparency, professionals stand to make a significant step change and bring huge benefits to their employers."
