Make life easy with a single supplier you can trust
Supplier Focus: Printing
Keeping your School stocked with the essentials can be an arduous undertaking. But it doesn’t have to be, thanks to Staples Business Advantage.
What do you picture when you hear the name Staples Solutions? If you’ve got visions of school supplies and teaching aids, you’re on the right track, but you might be surprised to find out that you’ve barely scratched the surface of what we have to offer.
As the largest company in the industry, with customers in 30 European countries and a further 20 markets globally, we’ve made it our business to help you achieve your goals. We know that it takes much more than office supplies to turn possibilities into realities. That’s why there’s Staples Business Advantage – a one-stop-shop for the solutions you need.
If you constantly feel stretched beyond your limits, you’re not alone. Managing relationships with multiple suppliers can be an ongoing challenge.
With Staples Business Advantage, we make it simple by being the one trusted supplier for all of your consumable needs. Our passionate and purposely specialised people will help you do your job with efficiency and ease, so you can worry less and make more happen.
Our one source solution includes comprehensive products and services that allow you to develop a customised programme that provides exactly what your school needs – in the classroom, the computer lab and every room in between.
BEYOND OFFICE SUPPLIES
Our product selection goes far beyond post-it notes and comfy office chairs. No matter where your students and faculty find themselves throughout the school day, you can be certain that Staples Business Advantage has what they need.
We provide printing systems, computers and stationery to keep your office running smoothly, and stock every classroom with teaching aids that foster engagement and take learning to the next level. But the areas students occupy when they’re not in the classroom are equally important. A cafeteria needs to withstand daily meals and occasional rambunctious behaviour, so you’ll want our sturdy, space-saving tables and chairs, as well as utensils, plates and napkins that include eco-conscious options.
Every corner of your school should be kept clean and germ-free, from the hallways to the washrooms. We’ve got towels and bath tissues to keep your washrooms stocked, and sanitiser dispensers to keep those sick days at bay. In fact, we’ve got your entire cleaning and waste management programme taken care of, because you can procure all your janitorial supplies and equipment from us.
Someone has to take care of the people who are always taking care of everyone else. That’s why we make sure the teacher’s lounge is fully stocked with coffee, bottled water, snack solutions and anything else your faculty might want to keep them refueled and refreshed.
A CUSTOM SERVICE
Our experts at Staples Business Advantage understand what it takes to run an educational establishment, right down to the nitty-gritty. And we know that every educational facility differs from the next, so we provide a holistic approach to your supply programme, giving you help when and where you need it. You’ll have a dedicated account manager who will get to know you and your team to determine the best approach to fulfilling your unique requirements. They’ll develop a customised procurement programme that will give you the products and services you need, as well as specialised pricing.
Your trusted representative is always just a phone call away. Wherever you need us we’re there, ready to offer our support and expertise, more choice, and more value for your money.
THE BENEFITS OF CONSOLIDATION
The advantages of using a single source supplier are indisputable. Streamlining the supply chain saves time and money, increases efficiency and productivity, and ultimately makes your job easier.
With only one supplier to manage, you’ll reduce administration hours and excess packaging and delivery costs. A customised procurement programme that’s catered your specific needs and your budget, means you won’t overbuy, waste supplies, or run out of anything unexpectedly. There’s also the bonus of having just one point of contact – your dedicated account manager – if any issues arise.
REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Is saving the planet just one more thing on your to-do list? We’ve got that covered too.
Our new Easy on the Planet programme is designed to help you reach your facility’s sustainability objectives by consolidating your orders and favouring eco-conscious products.
