A cost-effective and flexible procurement solution for social housing landlords throughout the UK
Through this framework our members can work directly and compliantly with a wide range of market leading suppliers.
We actively support you using this framework and provide ongoing support throughout the term of the contract, including benchmarking across a range of suppliers to ensure true long term best value is preserved beyond the initial contract award.
Our solutions are tailored to meet each members individual requirements, enabling you to easily work with multiple suppliers, using a variety of delivery and collection options, including over the counter service, van stock, delivery and fully managed store services.
Our dedicated material management team are proven experts at securing the best market rates and insulating members against price increases and inflation. We also use our great value deals secured through our planned materials manufacturers as a tool to reduce costs.
The framework is compliant with UK and EU procurement legislation, saving up to 77 days on the procurement process.
Our account managers work closely with members and suppliers to ensure the right materials are delivered to the right place at the right time for the right price, so that operatives can get on with their jobs easily and efficiently.
The framework requires suppliers to provide a transaction system that can be integrated with a customers system at the suppliers cost.
Our online system automatically checks and reconciles transactions, flagging up price changes and the introduction of new items on a live basis. The Reallies Price Management Process ensures speed, certainty and savings, providing members with monthly information reports that highlight key management information to drive service efficiency, including top spend items, on/off catalogue spend, and spend by operative and category.
Reallies targeted support ensures that training and employment opportunities connect with your local community. Surpluses generated through the framework fund local employment and community groups located within member landlord communities to support social and economic regeneration.
