West Midlands based Advantia member, Swift Business Solutions, have diversified and expanded their team which has led to them winning two business awards in their local area.
Advantia helps their members to diversify into growing product sectors as sales volumes and margins in traditional office supplies continues to decline. Swift Business Solutions identified a growth opportunity for them to expand their product portfolio into promotional gifts and corporate clothing but unlike many office products dealers who have dabbled in these sectors, Swift made the decision to take the venture seriously and have employed two experts to drive sales.
Swift Business Solutions appointed Business Gifts Specialist, Jessica Davanzo and Corporate Wear Specialist, Becky Hack to head up sales and develop business with existing and new customers. In recognition of sales in these product areas Swift received the award for Best Loved Business 2016 from the Best Of Sutton Coldfield and they also won the 2015 Growth Award, from Lichfield business to business networking organisation BriteStart.
Jessica Davanzo, Business Gift Specialist at Swift Business Solutions said, “our customers are delighted that they can get their business gifts and corporate clothing from the same place as all their other business supplies and receive just one invoice. They like the convenience but also our ideas and input. It’s not just about pens and mouse mats! Our customers value Swift’s expertise across furniture, office supplies and now these new sectors.
"We have in place product sector experts throughout the business to help, advise, inspire and make sure the customer gets the best solution for their needs and budget.”
