We don't let the engineers have full access to stock...
That's fine! You don't have to change the way you distribute consumables to staff. Lots of QUICKSTOCK customers use the CONTROLLED STORE MODEL which allows you to restrict staff usage and have full control similar to what you might currently be doing.
It's like having a mini supply store on site - the stores person accesses the stock cabinets and distrubutes the stock as usual, but the real benefits come from the huge time saving in no longer needing to make regular purchase orders, manage the inwards consumable goods or monitor stock levels. You'll have a contstant supply of your regularly ordered consumables right there on site.
We've tried consignment stock...it didn't work for us
QUICKSTOCK™ is similar to consignment stock, but different in that the entire system is managed for you. We work with you to establish what consumables you regulalry use, and how much. The cabinets are stocked with plenty of these products to ensure you don't run out between replenishments, and our local replenishers visit monthly to count, restock and tidy the cabinets.
How does the pricing structure work?
We have individual and pack rates, and the beauty of QUICKSTOCK is all product is charged at pack rates regardless of how much you use. For example, if you stock linishing belts, you might use 1 or 2 in a month, but you still get pack pricing rates as if you were using 10.
Of course if there are 1 or 2 products you are concerned about, let us know. We don’t want a few dollars standing in the way of you saving thousands per year.
What if we’ve already got a storeman & ordering system that works well?
That’ excellent! QUICKSTOCK doesn’t have to replace what’s already working well, but can work alongside people and processes to take them to another level. You can still use the same processes you’re used to, the big difference is you have the stock available on site, and stock levels are managed for you.
Instead of placing orders that can take 12 hours to arrive, you’ve got a mini Euromarc shop that takes 12 seconds to extract your products. There’s no more needing to check stock, place orders, following up on backorders, short shipments or incorrect supply – the product is simply right there, on site and ready to be used. You’ll benefit from a huge reduction in the costly process of purchase orders.
What about my other suppliers I've been with for years?
Moving to QUICKSTOCK doesn’t necessarily mean you have to move away from your long-term suppliers. Quite a few of our QUICKSTOCK customers have started off with cabinets that just stock the consumables they already purchase off Euromarc, and we can always add or subtract products lines where required.
In today’s business climate, no supplier would ever say you can’t come back to them or raise their prices – we all want your business. At the end of the day, you need to make a decision that is right for you and your business. With QUICKSTOCK, you’re not tied into any long-term contracts, and if the solution doesn’t work for you, we’ll take it out. It’s that simple.
I like to own all the stock on site
That’s perfectly understandable. With QUICKSTOCK, you own everything outside of the cabinets. It’s like having your own customised Euromarc shop right there in the workshop – as soon as a product is removed from the cabinet its yours.
How do we know what your products are like? The guys are pretty stuck on what they use...
It’s great your guys like using good product. Euromarc aim at the top end of product quality, specialising in consumables specifically for metal engineers.
We’re more than happy to send you product samples to try out, or if you want to jump right in, with QUICKSTOCK there’s no locked in contracts, and you only pay for what you use. If it doesn’t work for you, we’ll take it out. Hassle free.
What happens if QUICKSTOCK doesn't work for us?
If the solution simply isn’t working for you, we can remove it. No worries, no hurt feelings. There’s no locked in contracts, and at the end of the day, if the solution isn’t benefitting you, it’s not benefitting us. It has to save you time and money.
What’s in it for Euromarc? What’s the catch?
There’s no catch. QUICKSTOCK is a fully open, transparent solution, with reporting so you can see exactly what’s going on.
What’s in it for us? Well we’ve got everything to gain by looking after you and your business. QUICKSTOCK is not a one off sale, it’s having a loyal customer in 10 years time that we’re able to continue providing value for. Basically, your success is our success.
