Single source solution
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.
