Consolidated Basket

Purchasing business-essential items just got a whole lot easier

Your business has spend across multiple different categories, across multiple suppliers

Purchase all your items, regardless of category or supplier, in one consolidated basket

Businesses typically order a host of “non-core” products and services, and the process of ordering these are often dis-jointed and fragmented.

From print to branded workwear, transactional mail and communications to direct marketing campaigns & office products, PPE and Janitorial products, signage to POS, we will bring the clarity you may not currently have.

This spend is often not clearly tracked; it doesn’t come from one budget; it’s owned by different functions within a business; it’s probably paid for by borrowing budget from different departments or different sites. All of which means from the top down, there is no clear visibility.

Mapping permissions and accountability

No clear visibility on spend, ROI, performance of your suppliers, little or no leverage and lack of accountability or ownership from a wide bandwidth of suppliers offering little or no strategic value to your business.

Approach Procurement Solutions resolves this with our unique approach and our unique procurement platform (Lightbulb).

With a single sign on and based on the permissions you decide each individual should have, your key people can browse across all these categories of products, buy the products they need, when they need them, at the prices agreed with your senior central finance team. Any product from any number of categories is placed in one consolidated basket and placed with clear visibility.

Order everything in one location

Every product line is mapped to our strategic supply chain partner who are managed through a robust and transparent set of KPI’s, and all point of need deliveries are made within the SLA we agree with you (our client).

At Approach PS we understand business. We are bold, we are brave, and we are innovative which is why we are leading the way with our Lightbulb procurement platform.
