Supplies Team is a leading provider of office supplies within the public sector and the number one provider of computer and printer consumables. Although joining the @UK network will give Supplies Team access to all sectors of the public service, one of its fastest growing areas is schools needs, offering a one-stop solution for specialist schools equipment plus general stationery and office products. Supplies Team has actually been in school supply for over 30 years. It already supplies over 5000 schools and educational bodies in the UK, but sees the @UK network as a way to add to this total quickly and efficiently. Its dedicated “Supplies Team for Schools” educational division offers over 20,000 high-quality products on a free, next day delivery service, now with the ability to link proposed orders straight into the SIMS FMS system of around 18,000 schools.
Craig Varey, Sales Manager with Supplies Team for Schools identified major benefits from becoming a member of the @UK supplier network. “Partnering with @UK allows Supplies Team to connect with schools in an environment that will minimise transaction costs, reduce purchase costs and release money into front end spending”. What we want to be able to do is offer education the easiest-possible ordering and payment experience. Through @UK we will gain access to schools and public bodies nationwide, making it easy for our customers to log on to all their needs”
