Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

Commercial has streamlined a previously complex stock management system for a leading retailer at Pets at Home, which involved two separate GNFR (Goods Not For Resale) suppliers—one delivering directly to stores and another to a warehouse. Leveraging the expertise of the Commercial team, they rationalised stock lines and introduced off-the-shelf alternatives for items previously considered as bespoke by the former suppliers. By merging both supply streams into one, they significantly reduced the number of required delivery journeys, thereby substantially decreasing the carbon footprint of deliveries.

our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Commercial account management team provides invaluable weekly reports and expert advice to a leading retailer as they manage 200 lines of GNFR (Goods Not for Resale) stock. The intelligent stock reports are based on consumption patterns and previous seasonal variations, allowing for effective planning and forecasting. This ensures that 200 customised stock lines, including 12 considered business-critical, are always available to a network of more than 500 UK stores.
As a leading High Street retailer, we rely on accurate stock forecasting to ensure the availability of 14 lines of business-critical stock at all times. Commercial has provided us with the perfect solution through the expertise of their account management team. They have implemented several safeguards to ensure availability across all lines, managing two separate stockholding systems with contingencies in place. Weekly stock calls keep us updated on all stock holdings.
The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
