LEADING-EDGE FULFILMENT

Through ensuring that your business remains ahead of the curve in terms of technology, Vohkus can help your business get an edge over the competition. Our leading edge fulfilment model is one of the foundation stones upon which this premise is based.

It is our belief that procurement does not stop at cost: warehousing and logistics are the foundation of every supply chain and of critical importance to efficient business processes. At Vohkus, we create business partnerships with suppliers, offering them worldwide business opportunities to guarantee our customers the best possible value from the products and services we procure from them. As we seek to uphold the very highest standards in our warehousing and transport processes, we demand the same from our suppliers to ensure the fulfilment model experienced by our clients is entirely dependable.

Combined with some of the most experienced heads in the IT industry, we use the latest technology to guarantee the solidity of our fulfilment model. EDI-supported processes, world-leading ERP and partnerships with the world’s leading logistics providers all go to support the vision of Vohkus consolidating our position as a leading-edge procurement organisation. One way of achieving this is by creating win-win situations for ourselves and our suppliers and unlocking the value in their propositions. This translates into great service and guaranteed value for our customers, sharpening your business edge just a little more.

INTERNATIONAL DEPLOYMENT EXPERTISE

Thanks to our unique supply chain and sourcing model, we are positioned ideally to support customers not only across the length and breadth of the UK, but also internationally.

The Vohkus international business team not only profits from the breadth of our far-reaching partnerships with the world’s leading vendors, but also from a rich heritage of successful international delivery and project deployment. We have a number of blue-chip companies with extensive subsidiaries on our books, so we are no strangers to the challenges that international business can bring. Where export is necessary, we can allocate resource to ensure all freight, airway, customs clearance and commercial documents are presented to officials in an accommodating manner. Accurate and compliant documents ensure unnecessary delays are prevented. Vohkus have been issued General Export Licences by the UK government, that enable us to send dual-use goods outside of the EU, without having to endure the delays associated with export licence applications.

Through international procurement consolidation with Vohkus, goods can be coordinated at one central consolidation point, schedule consolidated deliveries to site and ensure that the product is purchased at the best possible price, on the best possible terms, giving you peace of mind that your international technology requirements are in safe hands. Managing lead times from multiple, international suppliers can also be resource-intensive and frustrating; our experienced team can give accurate information on how long the export process takes, giving you a realistic timeframe to work to and helping you avoid potentially costly delays and penalties.

With a database comprising hundreds of thousands of products, spanning the world of IT, our product portfolio is a true reflection of what the market has to offer. A unique European supply network puts the products of over 300 manufacturers at your fingertips – the backbone to VPRO and the cornerstone of Vohkus’ unrivalled pan-European model.

Each day, the pricing for millions of pounds’ worth of products is updated on Vohkus’ bespoke pricing system, which sees pricing and stock levels updated to reflect the best terms available and creates the shortest lead times for our customers. With almost 50% of pricing across the market changing on a daily basis, we recognise the need for advanced systems being in place to provide the greatest value to our customers.
