A Strategic Approach to Furniture Buying
We have developed industry-leading strategies to mitigate risks, align dealers and manufacturers to garner maximum competition, and provide insight into the value of discounting from each manufacturer and product.
Our core services:
- RFP Development & Analysis
- Product Evaluation & Award
- Discounting & Contract Negotiation
Additionally, we provide:
Furniture Pre-Order Auditing Services
- A specialised pre-order placement audit service to ensure our clients are not being overcharged for products and services. With the frequency of specification changes that can be made between award and order placement, it is easy to lose track of the pricing and discounting offered in the RFP responses. We can help confirm costs and secure savings.
Furniture Advisory Logistics Oversight
- We inform our clients on the status of orders, provide oversight of the schedule and installation, and ensure a timely completion of the punch-list and close-out.
The Value of Furniture Advisory
We have local, regional and global expertise. Our resources ensure we can negotiate the deepest discounting and most favourable terms for our clients.
You’ll know what to expect on every project. While we customize our process and strategy for every client, our high level of service and attention to detail is consistent across all projects and for all clients.
Unique Market Presence
Every team member brings dealer, manufacturer and/or client experience to the project, enabling us to develop an RFP strategy based on first-hand experience and deep knowledge.
We maintain a discounting database from every project and can verify if the discounting offered in the bid responses is commensurate with the project volume. When the discounting is not where it should be, we will negotiate to ensure our clients are paying fair market value.
