Helping businesses to buy better

Working with leisure and hospitality businesses to maintain financial discipline

COVID-19
Helping businesses to maintain financial discipline
As COVID-19 continues to impact the global economy in unprecedented ways, businesses worldwide are facing difficult decisions relating to cost control.

In such challenging times, taking short-term reactive measures is inevitable however, as past financial crises have shown, businesses that deployed strategic and sustainable cost reduction strategies significantly outperformed the competition. In fact, many emerged as strong and profitable winners.

New challenges need new ways of thinking; and the decisions and actions you take now will determine your business’s ability to weather these unprecedented levels of uncertainty.

That’s where Regency Purchasing Group can help...
MARKET PRICE ANALYSIS
Releasing cost savings with speed and agility
We can release the untapped value from your supply chain almost immediately to deliver cost savings that are so vitally important to your business’s recovery and survival.
Our market price analysis includes:
  • Understanding your specific business goals and ethos
  • Analysing costs, product quality and service levels from all suppliers
  • Negotiating new and existing product prices
  • Recommending new local and national suppliers
  • Sourcing alternative, better value products
  • Delivering rapid cost savings.
SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Maximising your supplier relationships
With numerous suppliers operating at reduced capacity or ceasing to trade, businesses are currently faced with supplier agreements that are no longer operationally fit for purpose, contracts that are not reflecting the new commercial norms, and situations where, due to intense competition, they find themselves in a ‘sellers’ market’.
Our supply chain management service includes:
  • Analysing purchasing requirements and understanding demand levels
  • Recognising operational sensitivities and providing immediate solutions
  • Reviewing existing supplier contracts and Service Level Agreements
  • Identifying available and reactive suppliers
  • Establishing sustainable operational disciplines
  • Limiting price increases to an absolute minimum.
PRODUCT CATEGORIES
Achieving the best value across all categories
Unlike many purchasing partners, we work with an extensive and trusted network of suppliers across a wide range of categories. We can help you achieve the best value without compromising on quality. We also work with members to help them source bespoke and specialist items.
We can source products from the following categories:
  • Food incl. frozen, fresh and grocery
  • Drink incl. alcohol, coffee and soft drinks
  • Cleaning, janitorial, safety and hygiene products (including PPE)
  • Catering and industrial equipment, incl. servicing and maintenance
  • Payment solutions and terminals
  • Waste management
  • Utilities.
SUSTAINABILITY
Working with you to reduce your environmental impact
Sustainability is becoming an increasing focus for both businesses and consumers. With increases in regulations and consumer awareness, our team can help you implement changes to significantly reduce your environmental impact.
Our sustainability services include:
  • Eliminating single-use products
  • Forward planning and demand level forecasting
  • Reducing waste and maximising associated cost savings
  • Minimising food miles and delivery frequencies
  • Identifying sustainable products and suppliers.
POST-TENDER SUPPORT
An ongoing partnership to deliver long-term benefits
We operate a fully-integrated, partnership approach, working as an extension of your business or procurement department to deliver long-term benefits.

Our team continuously strives to further maximise savings, improve quality and service and identify new opportunities and ways of innovation. This ongoing post-tender support service is enhanced by our Regency IQ solution, available to all members to ensure that you continue to maintain financial and operational discipline, while allowing you to focus on meeting the needs of your customers.
