Reduce Janitorial Supply Costs
Janitorial Supplies are a necessary expenditure for many organisations.
This category encompasses Cleaning products, Washroom Consumables and Catering Consumables. All items need to conform to relevant Health & Safety standards required by the client’s industry and be fit for purpose.
Our specialists work with clients to reduce the cost of Janitorial Supplies. Our aim is to present options to allow clients to make an informed decision. This can be achieved either via like for like unit cost reduction, smarter buying habits or an overall improvement to the supply chain. Sometimes it can be a combination of all three.
The process includes a detailed review of specifications, current practices and service requirements which can identify more appropriate methodology and practice which, amongst other things, can also help reduce on site working capital and improve lead times.

Our specialists work with clients to gain a full appreciation of their needs, ensuring that all key stakeholders are fully engaged and that all existing quality and service requirements are completely understood.
This includes individual item specification, usage, delivery lead times, order patterns and stockholding strategy. All costs, volumes and order patterns are thoroughly benchmarked too. We would also seek to understand what works particularly well and where there might be scope for improvement. Any alternative solutions even if it is simply a change of supplier(s) at new rates for existing items purchased, would be fully sampled and trialled to the client’s satisfaction.
