Vodafone and other telecommunications companies throughout Britain have benefited from working with us.

For the attention of Mr Neville Ockrim:

Dear Sir

The Auditor

In January this year, we engaged to review our stationery supply chain.

Their Mr. David Latter ably facilitated the project.

David started by making a detailed requirements review by analysing our invoices. The requirement was tendered, and this was followed by further price negotiations. We stayed with our existing supplier.

The exercise was carried out with the full involvement and support of our own Procurement Specialist, and completed by mid July. We settled immediately on The Auditor's fee, which had been pre-agreed at half the agreed total saving.

We were particularly pleased that this exercise has also served to actually improve and strengthen our business relationship with our supplier.

I would have no hesitation in recommending The Auditor's services to any corporate client with substantial stationary spending which they wish to review either by bench-marking or tendering.

Yours faithfully

Tim Williams
Head of Supply Chain Management
