Strategic Procurement and Support Consultancy Services

Procurement And Support For Cleaning Services, Systems, Products And Equipment

Cleaning services and cleaning product procurement are a major spend for most organisations. Yet procurement for any cleaning related products and services is difficult to get right and they can cost an organisation much more than originally intended. Cleaning services are often classed as non-productive and the costs are often driven right down to be as low as possible, yet the products and services thus procured are usually so poor, the spend actually becomes much higher than it should actually be.

Futureclean Assured Systems has the expert capability to deliver the following strategic procurement and support services for your organisation.

Organisations spend vast amounts on cleaning services, together with associated costs for products, equipment and ancillary products such as paper towels, soaps, and so on. These costs can be considerable, often some of the largest in your organisation, but much of this money is wasted Many of these contracts are legacy and are often vendor biased. However you will not have the knowledge or the time to review the contract.
