Corserv’s centralised procurement team work hard to ensure money is spent wisely and cost effectively throughout the group of companies. Reshaping the relationship with suppliers can increase the profitability, but this doesn’t happen accidentally.
The companies across the group all had their own legacy arrangements with various suppliers for office stationery. A decision was taken to try and leverage the company-wide expenditure for office supplies and consolidate spend with one vendor through a formal Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) compliant tender.
Following evaluation of the tenders based on the quality of the service and the cost, Lyreco was appointed as the sole provider for office stationery to the group of companies. Significant cost savings have been achieved and the service levels received by each company within the group have improved greatly.
