Making Smarter Procurement

A closer look at the Troy School District.

At Staples, we are focused on changing the way that customers think about and manage the procurement of office supplies, printing services, furniture and much more. Through our Staples Business Advantage® program, customers gain customized procurement processes that are constantly monitored and enhanced to improve control, expedite return on investment and increase cost savings. As a result of this proactive account management, most customers that partner with us stay with us.

Here is an example of how one long-standing education customer revamped its office supply and printing procurement processes, relying on Staples' wide product selection, online ordering and next-day delivery to cut costs and simplify ordering across its 12 schools.

"Staples has delivered on the three S's – service, savings and selection. We've been able to cut down on inventory and labor, improve the way we operate and save significant dollars along the way."
