Through using our brand new Universal Credit Application, Beacon helped York-based business North Star Hotel start trading with Beacon suppliers within just 48 hours.
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.
Jane Poppitt, Customer Relations Manager at Beacon, 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.”
She continued: “One great example of a customer who benefitted from the UCA was the North Star Hotel in Flamborough, which needed to start purchasing through Beacon as quickly as possible; as a result of filling out just the one credit application, they were able to start purchasing through our approved suppliers and placed their first order within 48 hours”
