Strategic business supplies specialist Office Depot has strengthened its next generation procurement tool, as they announce the successful addition of 1 million products to their innovative online procurement platform, SmartPad.

This significant milestone marks a strategic advancement in the company’s commitment to enhancing their buying experience for businesses of all sizes.

The news comes as regular announcements of new partnerships – and growth of existing relations – has seen Office Depot significantly extend its offering over the last few years, beginning with PPE solutions introduced during the pandemic. Since then, Office Depot have been consistently adding to their portfolio, strategically growing, and realigning their offering into 15 new product categories, which now include Workplace, Tools, Technology, Janitorial, Electrical, Catering, Medical, Education, Outdoor, Occupational Safety, Automotive, Industrial, Workspace Management, Digital Services and Print. By doing this, Office Depot acknowledges that some niche sectors have highly specific requirements and can now further support a wider range of customers in industries such as Manufacturing, Industrial, Automotive, Hospitality, Catering, and Electronics.

“Our heritage may be as a B2B stationery supplier, but our existing capabilities far exceed that. Customers want choice, simplicity, and consolidation from their procurement partners, and we’ve reflected such needs in our digital platform.” commented OT Group’s CEO, Andrew Jones.

“People say the days of a ‘one stop shop’ are over,” added Andrew. “But perhaps that’s only the case when an organisation hasn’t found the right partner. There are many advantages of sourcing everything in a single place – the ultimate shopping basket – if that supplier can uphold a consistent quality of products and service across the board.”

This is just the beginning for Office Depot as their future roadmap shows an ambitious target – offering their customers availability of 2 million products by the end of 2024 through SmartPad and 3 million products by the end of 2025.

Office Depot remains committed to continuous improvement and innovation and have an extensive pipeline of new partnerships that will be announced over the coming months.
