Procurement Portal

Your chance to take back control over your business

Digital purchasing platform for multi-site operations

Procure and control centrally, empower employees locally

Our Lightbulb platform has been purposefully designed to support all businesses no matter of their size, scope or scale, because your business needs to make every penny of your budgets work as hard as they possibly can.

Security is paramount

We have developed this unique, uber secure procurement environment after speaking with numerous businesses over many years. Lightbulb is a central platform and dashboard, function rich with a powerful DAM (Digital Asset Management) function where you can house all of the intellectual assets of your business to generate the optimum results from the budgets you have.

Firstly, Lightbulb can be fully integrated into your CRM tools, meaning you can create templates on the Web-2-Print solo; we can call out your CRM data (I.e. invoices or customer communications); we can merge both elements instantly and with unlimited volume so we can pass approved & authorised letters, invoices and any form of operational documentation to our hybrid mail path instantly.

Secondly, from a single sign on, your key people can browse all or any non-core procurement categories and place a single multi product order in a single consolidated basket from print, to direct mailings, to branded workwear and PPE to office products.

Let’s sum that up

That’s one single sign on, one order in one basket, one invoice and one clean set of MI data.

That’s our automated, paperless, procurement solution.

Anyone can imitate, few can innovate.
