Sin­gle source so­lu­tion

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

DUE TO high de­mand from ex­ist­ing cus­tomers, lead­ing busi­ness prod­ucts and ser­vices sup­plier, Sta­ples, has launched a new divi­sion Sta­ples Safety So­lu­tions. The Sta­ples Safety So­lu­tions range fea­tures more than 25,000 prod­ucts in­clud­ing Per­sonal Pro­tec­tive Equip­ment (PPE), work­wear and site safety prod­ucts suit­able for a range of in­dus­tries in­clud­ing min­ing, con­struc­tion, man­u­fac­tur­ing, food ser­vice, trans­port, Gov­ern­ment and ware­hous­ing.

“The gap we saw in the mar­ket, com­bined with an in­crease in de­mand from our cus­tomers for a sin­gle source so­lu­tion for all their PPE and work­wear, led us to launch Sta­ples Safety So­lu­tions,” said Joe Tay­lor, head of Fa­cil­ity So­lu­tions, Sta­ples Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

“Our team of safety spe­cial­ists can help en­sure that there is prod­uct con­sol­i­da­tion across an or­gan­i­sa­tion and that they’re only or­der­ing nec­es­sary equip­ment and cloth­ing, re­duc­ing over­head costs and ex­cess de­liv­er­ies,” added Joe.

Sta­ples is also able to pro­vide on­site vend­ing ma­chines with key card ac­cess al­low­ing staff who may need items at short notice quick ac­cess on any given day or time. Each vend­ing ma­chine has an in­ven­tory man­age­ment sys­tem that tracks stock us­age and con­trols stock on hand with auto-re­plen­ish lev­els set by the cus­tomer.

“Our goal is to en­sure that our cus­tomers con­tinue to have ac­cess to the most up- to-date and in­no­va­tive safety prod­ucts at cost ef­fec­tive prices and with fast de­liv­ery,” he said.

In ad­di­tion to ease of or­der­ing and re­plen­ish­ing stock, Sta­ples can pro­vide cus­tomised re­port­ing to help man­age pro­cure­ment goals. Plus, its part­ner­ships with in­dus­try lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers en­ables cus­tomers ac­cess to the new­est prod­ucts and lat­est in­no­va­tions, fur­ther en­hanc­ing its stance on pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble cus­tomer ser­vice.

All of the safety equip­ment and work­wear avail­able in the Sta­ples Safety So­lu­tions range is sourced from rep­utable safety brands and meets ei­ther Aus­tralian or the equiv­a­lent global stan­dards.

“We are cur­rently work­ing on some ex­cit­ing im­prove­ments to our on­line or­der­ing plat­form, which will make or­der­ing work­wear a much eas­ier ex­pe­ri­ence for our cus­tomers. New func­tion­al­ity will en­able them to cus­tomise their uni­forms with lo­gos and as­so­ci­ated em­broi­dery – en­sur­ing a faster turn­around time,” Joe said.

The Sta­ples Sup­ply Chain model has 22 ware­hous­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion points of­fer­ing next day de­liv­ery in metro re­gions, and the Sta­ples Spot Ser­vice means with the cor­rect author­ity, orders can be de­liv­ered to a se­cure nom­i­nated lo­ca­tion within a premises with­out the need for a sig­na­ture.
