Partnership benefits customers
Customers from the UK and overseas will be able to access the products and services offered by cabling leader AEI Cables more quickly and easily after the company partnered with an industrial supply chain management service.
AEI Cables has signed up to Achilles in a move which is set to benefit customers and the business itself.
Among its services, Achilles operates supplier pre-qualification programmes designed to benefit both suppliers and buyers in the natural resources, industrials and infrastructure sectors.
This means suppliers can save money and time by completing a single pre-qualification questionnaire, which can then be viewed by a range of organisations in a chosen sector and region.
Customers benefit from improved efficiency and higher standards, as the sector-specific buyers and suppliers are supported by an industry steering group which develops best practice approaches including pre-qualification standards.
Stuart Dover, commercial manager for AEI Cables, said: “Achilles represents an opportunity for AEI Cables because the system is used by so many diverse businesses looking to manage risk and save time and money while looking for relevant suppliers.
“A wide range of pre-qualified suppliers can be accessed, while industry-wide improvements and best practice can also be shared.
“It makes sense for us as a business to sign up, as it allows us to access new business opportunities in the UK and further afield, while cutting the cost of pre-qualification.”
