Regional Care Home
Equinoxe were contacted by a regional group of care homes to review the suppliers they were using and the costs they were paying. It transpired that not only were they paying more than they needed to, but some of the units were buying on a local, ad hoc basis. Equinoxe were able to offer this customer a cost saving of 12% on their ambient spend and a further 17% for fruit and veg. In addition, we worked closely together to introduce tighter controls and monitoring of each homes’ spend. The customer was so delighted that they asked us to take on the responsibility for their fresh meat, non food and stationery purchasing too.
National Garden Centre Chain
Equinoxe were approached by a national garden centre chain to review their purchasing spend. Working closely with one of our national wholesalers we were able to present a cost saving of over £150k per annum on their food spend. We work closely with manufacturers to help them with their menu development sourcing the right products to suit their needs
“It is very seldom that I would write a personal recommendation, however I do make an exception for very few people and Rob is one of them.
I initially worked with Rob Kemp when his company came to advise innovate services Ltd a National education contract catering company on saving money in our procurement department.
Equinoxe, totally driven by Rob managed to save us in excess of tens of thousands of pounds yearly, I strongly believe that Rob achieved this not only with his natural ability to be a straight but fast talker! But an equally nice guy to deal with I would strongly recommend Rob and his business Equinoxe to any potential client looking for a procurement solution without the normal rubbish.”
Former CEO, Innovate Services
“Rob provides us with excellent, service and knowledge. More importantly to me he communicates with us. If there are issues and there are very few, we are aware of them and they are dealt with to our satisfaction. Rob provides a first class service, his integrity and hard work are un questioned and represents us as though he were an industrious colleague within our company rather than an excellent supplier of a truly quality service.”
