CBS INTRODUCTION Steve Haslett Managing Director
History ◌Independent Manufacturers Alliance now trading as Combined Buying Services ◌Founded 1992 originally for manufacturers. ◌Now has 10 leading Groups across a range of non- conflicting areas of business. ◌Trade Associations now main focus of growth
Our Motivation Increase Volume to improve our terms for new & existing Members Gain extra revenue from suppliers to fund expansion of HQ services.
The Group for Groups ◌Will improve our critical mass for CBS existing deals. ◌Other Groups offer synergies with Integra. ◌Cross fertilisation of other CBS Groups. ◌ New Deal opportunities.
Purchasing Power ◌Gained by concentrating on areas of indirect spend common to all businesses, such as:- ◌ Telecoms, Utilities, Fuel, Mobiles, Parcels, Healthcare, Electrical & Engineering Spares & Financial Services
CBS ADVANTAGES VOLUME
Volume Some examples : In BT’s top 100 Corporate Accounts T-Mobile Major Account Vodafone Silver Partner ESSO National Account FedEx National Account
CBS ADVANTAGES VOLUME KNOWLEDGE
Knowledge SME’s not targeted by suppliers BT not BT – CBS billed by BT on blue bill CBS supply all mobile networks – not restricted Are you dealing with the actual supplier?
CBS ADVANTAGES VOLUME KNOWLEDGE TIME
Time CBS Central Office spends time on each deal which would be totally uneconomic for individual companies. Time to investigate market and evaluate deals
Combined buying leverage of members guarantees strong negotiating position. Large, varied volume allows multiple supplier options.
Members direct suppliers towards the Centre. Feedback from members gives a better, current view of markets. Size gives other advantages such as Corporate account management.
New opportunities Field Force Automation The capture of field sales or service information in real time Hosted Voice – “virtual” switchboard
Resource Most of CBS deals are in areas of indirect spend, where few companies can afford to invest enough to achieve substantial cost savings. By using CBS services, your purchasing resource is free to concentrate on improving strategic areas of direct spend.
Communication Secure, dedicated Integra area on CBS website. Deals updated on a regular basis.
Benefits Off-invoice savings provide immediate financial benefits. There are no sharing of savings unlike ‘ cost savings consultants’. CBS generates revenue stream from suppliers only, thereby requiring no Member investment. Constant monitoring of terms with suppliers
Examples 70% - nearly £3000 saved on BT 6ppl on Esso cards – with Esso but through a third party Parcels 32% again £3000 Mobiles best so far 38% Electric & Gas
Control Remains with the member – all terms are optional CBS is a voluntary group CBS suppliers must be competitive
Why Use The Services Of CBS? The UK’s largest business buying group 20 years of successful trading history Focussed and experienced buying team Voluntary terms Chore not Core Savings go straight to the bottom line
