Displaysense Freeze Prices To Aid Cash Strapped Councils

With the UK economy still teetering on the cliff edge of economic recovery, everyone from small businesses to Alistair Darling are set for a new decade of belt tightening in order to reduce the countries debts. With more than 250,000 people currently employed in the public sector, this area is set to be hit hardest as budgets are slashed and the prospect of major job losses seem inevitable.

In order to help prevent future job losses, Displaysense, a leading supplier of display cabinets and cake stands to retailers and public bodies in the UK, has vowed to freeze the prices of its most popular ranges over the next couple of months.

The company, which has experienced price increases from their suppliers and who are also suffering from the ever escalating prices of fuel, has promised to absorb all of these costs until the start of June. As public sector bodies are set to start a new financial year in April, procurement managers are being encouraged to make the most of this price freeze and purchase their business card holders and display cases now.

With spending cuts being estimated between 5% and 20% from council to council, not only will those currently employment by a public sector body suffer, but also the general public who depend on grants or support from the government to get by.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense commented: “Throughout the 30 year history at Displaysense, we have always had a long standing relationship with councils. We appreciate their business and are trying to do what we can to ease their short term pressures and their long term concerns.”

According to a recent survey carried out by BBC English regions, some councils may experience up to 1000 job losses each, which will only push the level of unemployment back up and impact on the stability of the economies recovery.

Although the price freeze at Displaysense might not be the answer to the public sectors prayers, it is hoped that other suppliers will follow suit and play their part in keeping the countries unemployment level down and keeping the UK economy up.

Displaysense Reports Public Sector Busting Budgets Before 2010

Displaysense has reported that many public sector bodies are rushing to meet their budgets before the end of 2009 in an effort to maximise budget allowances in 2010.

2009 has proven to be a troubling and uncertain year for the majority of companies and public sector bodies in the UK, resulting in procurement managers, store owners and accountants departments tightening their belts and keeping a watchful eye over the budgets.

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display products such as display cases andleaflet holders has recognised a growing trend of public sector organisations that are purchasing and stocking up on duplicates of products as the year comes to a close in order to meet budget and prevent a smaller budget in 2010.

In certain examples found by Displaysense, a growing number of customers were even purchasing shelving units to store their duplicate products. This over spending might seem to some as a poor use of tax payers money and certainly, with scandals such as MPs expenses still in people’s minds as well as the impending increases in VAT, not the best timing. However, spending under budget can result in a cut of annual allocation for the following year which, depending on the public body, can have a greater impact on the tax payer as public bodies are expected to do more for less.

For example, hospitals and schools will purchase many poster holders and pamphlet displays from the likes of Displaysense in order to offer advice and information on a range of topics, from helping the elderly avoid winter bugs to assisting parents in keeping up with changes at their children’s school. Local councils can help educate their community on the money saving options available to them in the local area, which is especially useful for those on an unpredictable income. This type of advice and guidance is hard to put a price on, but those that have already benefited from it will no doubt say it is priceless.

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented: “During turbulent financial times such as these, it is not surprising that a number of public sector bodies have been cautious with their spending towards the start of the year. Holding off spending can be beneficial to a council as they have better buying power with multiple purchases as we are able to offer greater discounts. The result for us is an increase in sales on the likes of our business card holders and exhibition stands which we would not usually see at this time of year.”

With the year drawing to a close and local councils and public sector bodies having topped up on their supplies for the year ahead, it looks like companies such as Displaysense might have to wait until Christmas next year for another surge in spend. Christmas might come early in April however, as the end of the financial year will draw in other budget busting customers looking to capitalise on their left over funds.

This range is a first for Displaysense who are now supplying value sale packs in the form of “mega deal” packs as standard across the range of busts that offers greater savings to customers.

The company has already received a number of enquiries for the mega deal packs of hanging busts throughout August, from a number of clothing retailers through to a paintball centre wanting to use the items for training and target practice, which has made the company think broader when it comes to promoting these products

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on this new wave of product launches by saying “We are incredibly proud of every new product that we introduce as we fully understand that in a market such as this we cannot afford to stand still for very long. We are hoping to launch further mega deal packs in the future that could offer even greater savings, which is a much needed considering the current fragile nature of the retail sector.”

Not only have the company been introducing new products on a regular basis, but Displaysense has also been improving its new website with a faster site search function, allowing for easier customer access to products such as business card holders and whiteboards. The business has also embraced customer self service as another area to improve efficiencies, with the introduction of service forms, so customers can make enquiries or raise issues at any time of the day.

With new customer feedback and returns processes also recently introduced by the company in a bid to aid their customers, proving that Displaysense is not only pushing the message of economic recovery, but are also far from going bust anytime soon.
