Whatever your hospitality business, there's a huge number of reasons why you should work with Beacon. Here are just a few.........
Supply partners that focus on both value AND service
Our carefully selected supply partners are vetted to ensure they're able to offer best-value pricing without compromising on service. Experts in their respective categories, we also ensure they understand the specific needs of the hospitality sector and have the relevant expertise to add value to any contract - no matter what the size.
Save admin time with Central Billing
Our Central Billing function collates all of your monthly Beacon supplier invoices and consolidates them into one total amount. We then collect this from you by direct debit and make payments to your suppliers on your behalf. Your dedicated Account Manager will also provide a dispute resolution service by querying invoices, requesting credits and managing disputes as quickly as possible to save you both time and money. Find out more about the Central Billing cycle here.
Collect PowerPoints as you spend
PowerPoints is our way of rewarding our customers for their loyalty. Once you've signed up to Central Billing, you'll be able to start collecting points on qualifying purchases. These points can then be redeemed against future invoices or pieces of equipment, so you can save money and be rewarded all at the same time. Just think of it as a thank you for choosing to order through Beacon.
Amazing support - whenever you need it
Our proactive approach means we’re ready to go above and beyond when it comes to supporting you and your hospitality business. We’ve worked hard to be there for all of our customers during the COVID-19 pandemic - and we’ll be here to support you during the nation's recovery, too. Find out more about what we've been doing to help our customers during the pandemic here.
Order from multiple suppliers in one go
A P2P system provides full control and visibility for the entire transaction process from one online space. We partner with Indicater to offer our customers a low-cost modular solution that can be tailored to your requirements. Prefer a different system? That's not a problem. We're well versed in all the leading platforms and can support you in creating greater efficiencies to maximise your budget with whichever one you choose.
We're looking to a bright new future
Right now, we’re busy making sure everything is in place to help the hospitality industry get back to business, especially with most of our customers already welcoming back guests. And while our new normal might look very different to life before COVID-19, we’re doing our best to make sure our future - and yours - will be a great success.
