I.T Solutions:

We recognise the need for businesses to operate more efficiently and drive down the costs of low value procurement through innovative services and exploring added value material options. We have a dynamic I.T reporting programme which allows us to effectively produce and create in depth reports for M.I Data and Key Performance Indicators. This allows us to evaluate  service levels and important spend reports ensuring “best advice” is provided at all times.

The Grafton Procurement ID card is a tool which enables organisations to procure goods efficiently and effectively. It reduces ordering time, enables faster document delivery and reduces administration costs. The procurement card can be fully bespoke and can set up individual transaction limits for control by trade or job function.Wherever possible Grafton Merchanting GB businesses employ E-trading when developing business with partnering customers. We have established a e-trading portal solution which allows Grafton brands to electronically exchange key business documents such as orders, invoices, credits, delivery notes and statements with suppliers and customers.

Managing Van Stocks:

We can effectively manage the replenishment of van stocks which can allow operations teams to resolve emergency type problems immediately / first visit. This can be managed by producing an E-catalogue on an operatives PDA which will allow replenishment material orders are constantly received through our Hub Offices and therefore ensure materials used are replaced on a regular basis
