Benefits of the framework

No complex tendering

Office Depot was rigorously audited, before securing this exclusive place on the PCR 2015-compliant framework. This means housing providers and other establishments can engage directly with us, to avoid lengthy, costly procurement processes. That’s fewer admin pressures and financial savings, from the off.

An extension of your team

Benefit from the direct input of a dedicated account manager, who acts as an extension of your procurement team – particularly helpful when resources are stretched, or the products and services represent a step into the unknown.

Transparent pricing

With cost-competitiveness built in, as standard, the framework offers a comprehensive and transparent pricing model. The added financial benefits associated with using a single supplier, producing a single invoice, and at times a single delivery, compound the business case.

Supercharged procurement

The world of business supplies is no longer merely about commodities such as stationery, print consumables and catering staples. From customer communications to cloud connectivity, and print-on-demand to personal ID solutions, Office Depot can supercharge your procurement potential.

We understand your world

This framework is managed by the procurement experts Pretium – a team dedicated to achieving added value and excellent customer service for clients throughout the health, education and housing sectors. And our own procurement heritage, at Office Depot, is over 130 years old, but our appetite for innovation sees us remain at the forefront of the supply chain, to this day.

Shift the procurement agenda

While ‘needs must’ knee-jerk reactions have dominated the business agenda across many sectors – including housing – we can help shift the focus back to strategic procurement, which balances the savviest financial expenditure with product and service quality. Regain budget control and spend visibility, and drill into your procurement BI, in only a few clicks.
