We provided an agreed contract rate and service level agreement with any Ramada Encore hotel within the UK and Europe. Some hotels were franchised and individually owned and some were head office managed. Rates and service levels applied to all hotel types and groups. We offered group and bulk buying discounts where necessary once an audit on the group’s usage was completed. We held stock of non-hotel specific items for call off. We also produced hotel specific items but were able to offer discounts by placing these orders with other individual hotels similar order. This gave the client ongoing cost savings that were also measurable for head office.
Wyndham Grand Hotel Chelsea Harbour
We completed an audit on the hotels ordering over a 24 month period. From this point, we were able to offer cost savings by bulk ordering at certain items, for us to hold in stock for call off. As the environment is also paramount in any part of our thought process we only held enough stock that we knew would be called off over a suitable 3-6 month period. This allowed for bulk buying discounts. The freedom for the client to change or update the item without having to wait for stock to be depleted before it’s updated plus maximizing the benefit of our storage and call-off facility meant the Hotels stores are not overloaded.
The hotel is a premium 5 star plus hotel and the need for total brand cohesion in each print experience is paramount. We understand this implicitly so we are fully conversant when suggesting premium stocks, print finishes and tactile bespoke solutions that match their brand expression whilst also managing this within certain budget constraints.

It was then distributed to each site on a tracked overnight courier service. Each site requirement included but not limited to, individual price and content cards, posters, flyers and menus.
