• Office Power signs Rainbow Office Supplies

        • Office Power has partnered with Rainbow Office Supplies in Kendal, creating its first dealer partner in Cumbria, a partnership which has already been a great benefit, following the recent floods in the area.

          The company, that now has partners in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, partnered with Rainbow Office Supplies in December and shortly after Cumbria suffered its worst flooding in years. Water flooded Rainbow’s office to desk height and its delivery van, PCs and server were washed away.

          Steve Hartley Rainbow’s joint Founder said, “working with Office Power meant we could start servicing customers again quicker than if we were using an alternative. And now that all of our customer data is stored remotely, we’re protected should anything like this hit Cumbria again.”

          Rainbow initially approached Office Power because it was frustrated by a lack of support from wholesalers, who consistently increased their prices, resulting in squeezed margins and reduced profits.

          Steve added, “we have been an Office Power partner for just 10 weeks and already we have completely changed the way our business operates. We are no longer firefighting or spending hours and hours searching out the best prices or chasing orders. We don’t have to worry about fulfilment any more – Office Power looks after stock and deliveries. We are also now exclusively online, with a fantastic website that’s attractive and easy for our customers to use."

          Simon Drakeford, Office Power’s CEO concluded, “Rainbow is a great example of how Office Power can help dealers to cut costs and win new business, operate more efficiently and increase their profitability. We’re looking forward to seeing Steve’s business getting ever stronger over the coming months and years.”
