For the last fifteen years or so, we have been developing our own procurement platform. This has been used in the field by our category management and buying teams and is a well-honed and effective procurement solution. So effective, in fact that we use it for everything from project management and transparency through to sourcing and pricing.
Having a reliable and efficient procurement system can make all the difference in the world to your company, particularly for your marketing teams. Being able to source goods, materials, and services at the click of a button saves you from having to stockpile resources. This produces significant cost savings and is a proactive method of eliminating waste.
As one of the UKs leading print procurement companies, we have much to offer our clients across the country. Here is what you can expect from us.
The Webmart Print Portal is our own, tailor-made print marketing procurement solution. We have spent years developing it and continue to tweak and improve its performance on a regular basis. This platform is your one-stop solution for all your print procurement needs. If you ever feel there is a feature missing that you and your company could benefit from, let us know. If it’s feasible, we will try to fit it into the next round of updates.
Our procurement platform operates in real-time. It allows you to pull up your suppliers current prices and compare them against one another. This ensures that you are always getting the best possible deal, whatever time of day or night you place an order.
Of course, it’s not just the pricing of products that is updated in real-time. You have full access and visibility of the process, meaning you can track your projects every step of the way. This means you can better manage your supply chain, quickly identifying delays and disruptions.
If you require the same printed materials on a regular basis, you can benefit from our proprietary stock management system. The platform allows for stock level alerts, automatic re-ordering triggers as well as call off functionality with next day delivery. Combined with the print on demand options through the Webmart Print Portal, this provides a really powerful solution to our customers.
We agree bespoke commercial models with many customers to ensure the value we can provide to your organisation is maximised. This often includes transparent pricing models giving marketing and procurement departments full visibility and control over their print and marketing spend.
While our procurement solutions make for a more efficient way of working, we are often told that their main appeal is the reduction in costs for printed materials. Typically, our clients report cost savings of between 19% and 31%.
We understand that different companies require different methods of reporting. What might be a top priority for your business might be less important in a different sector. For this reason our procurement platform has a wide array of fully-customisable reporting functions. This allows you to accurately track spending in the key areas that are important to you.
There are plenty of ways Webmart can help you find new channels to market or drive up your campaign ROI. Here’s a range of fantastic success stories to show you what can be achieved.
