Welcome to School Supplies Team, our aim is to assist Swindon Schools in buying supplies effectively and efficiently. We source and negotiate pricing on a wide range of supplies on behalf of local Swindon Schools, effectively we become an extension of your organisation, with our key priorities being:
Improved product pricing: by consolidating the purchasing power of all local Schools we are able to pass on significant savings to members. When Schools buy together and support the School Supplies Team they save time and money together.
Rationalised product range: ensures Schools buy from an approved range of products that offer great value for money and quality (used, tested and approved by local Schools). Alternative suppliers offer Schools a confusing array of product choices and options resulting in Schools not always making the most cost effective buying decision on behalf of their School budget. School Supplies Team has purposely selected a narrow selection of good quality cost effective products that ensures not only an easier buying decision but piece of mind that the products you are ordering will save you money without compromising quality.
Better use of time: reduce the administrative burden of buying supplies, enabling School staff to focus on more important priorities. By ordering your supplies from the School Supplies Team rather than an assortment of different suppliers dramatically reduces the 'soft costs' associated with ordering supplies, including:
1] Less time spent placing orders and receiving quotes from multiple suppliers.
2] One delivery to receive and unpackage instead of multiple deliveries from different suppliers arriving and interrupting your day at different times.
3] Less packaging to deal with and dispose of.
4] Fewer suppliers to pay at month end and fewer suppliers to manage and deal with day to day.
Better for our environment: because we are Swindon based you are significantly reducing the environmental impact of your ordering compared to ordering from multiple non-local suppliers whose goods must travel many more miles on our roads, when you order from School Supplies Team your order only travels a few miles!
Easy and hassle free service: always free delivery to a room of your choice, no minimum order values and industry leading service. All orders are delivered on our own vehicles by our own drivers, we do not use couriers, so you can expect your order to be delivered professionally and damage free.
Experience: dedicated contacts who understand the specific needs of Schools. Our team, offices and warehouse are all based in Swindon ensuring you have direct access to a local team of experienced staff who are here to help Schools buy the right supplies at the best price.
