The healthcare sector faces numerous challenges when it comes to finding a suitable supplier for care homes. Cost and time are issues that arise for our care sector clients. Wanting to minimise the amount of time and money they spend on purchasing supplies, our clients see this as enhancing the level of care they are able to provide to residents. 

 Here are some of the main ways Fenns helps clients to cut down on time and money spent ordering supplies...

Branded workwear 

Having branded uniforms can make a huge difference to the attrition rates of your team. By giving your team high quality workwear and tunics, they feel more comfortable at work and that they are a part of the community you are creating. 

A standardised uniform increases unity and a sense of belonging. It also reminds employees that they are representing your brand and encourages them to act in a way that reflects your brand values. 


Flexible ordering methods

Knowing how your team best likes to order for speed and efficiency is a great way to cut down time. From printed catalogues to a digital portal, we’re flexible so that your team can work with us in the way they see best. The digital portal is great for ease as you can set up your favourite supplies for repeat purchasing and have different authority levels. 

All of our clients have a dedicated account manager who will be able to take phone calls and emails. They will also proactively work with you to ensure you’re consolidating your supplies and only using what you need. 


All supplies from one place 

Being able to get all of your supplies, like workwear to critical care forms, from one supplier is a way to save time for your team. There’s no longer time spent trying to find the cheapest supplies from various different sites and having an account means that you get a single invoice to send to your finance team. 

Streamlining your procurement processes enables you to spend more time and energy caring for your residents. It also cuts down the amount of back office human resource you need to dedicate to procurement needs.
