Beacon, which helps businesses in the hospitality, leisure and healthcare sectors grow their profitability, has recently launched its ground-breaking new Universal Credit Agreement (UCA), which promises to save businesses time and money on their purchasing.

With other purchasing partners, a customer would have to fill in a credit application for each approved supplier they choose to work with. However, by filling in just one credit application form, the UCA, when signing up to work with Beacon, businesses will no longer have to worry about completing and signing multiple forms, which ultimately slows the buying process. Beacon securely stores the businesses’ UCA on file to distribute to new suppliers, once again, saving customers valuable hours.

Howard Ball, Head of Purchasing, commented:

“The UCA is another great tool available to Beacon customers to ensure they receive the very best service. Beacon strives to not only save its customers money, but time too. By filling in just one credit application, new customers can often start purchasing from their chosen suppliers in just six days, compared to an average of fifteen days through the traditional process of one credit application form per supplier.”

Keith Donkin, Owner at BEST WESTERN Derwent Manor, commented:

"I have been working with Beacon for over seven years, and the introduction of the UCA really has changed the way in which we do business. In a busy hotel environment when time is of the essence, reducing the amount of hours needed to fill in paperwork really does make a difference. Being able to procure through new suppliers, quickly, ensures we get the very best deals on the highest quality products."
