Electronic tender wins boardroom business

Electronic tender wins boardroom business


An opportunity to tender electronically caught the eye of Telford businessman Richard Hughes.

Shropshire Chamber of Commerce & Enterprise were inviting online tenders to furnish their boardroom and reception.

Richard, a partner of Chrisbeon Office Supplies, accessed the system through the Chamber’s website – and his tender was successful.

Chamber managing director Richard Sheehan said he was delighted a local company had secured the business.

“For some time we have been promoting local procurement and our online system for local companies to secure business opportunities through that system,” he explained.

“It is an area of focus that we have as an organisation to support the county’s businesses and economic well being which that creates.

“We would urge all businesses in the county to get involved with it and help keep the money in Shropshire.”

Chrisbeon Office Supplies, of Stafford Park 4, Telford, successfully won the online tender to completely fit out the newly refurbished boardroom and reception area with what Mr. Sheehan described as ‘high quality furniture’.

He added: “A feature of the boardroom table is the two illuminated Chamber logos located in the centre. The idea is to provide a quality environment for our member companies and the business community to have access and be able to hold their important meetings.

“A number of local companies have already taken up the option and we have so far received 100% satisfaction feedback on the surroundings and the facilities we provide.”

Said Richard Hughes: “We were thrilled to win the electronic tender to supply the Chamber with a 16 seater boardroom table, the chairs and a minutes table, and also improve their furniture in the reception.

“We very much favour tendering electronically which we regard as the way forward,” he added.
