Findel agreement has proven successful, says Integra

Integra Business Solutions has announced that members are fully embracing the opportunities presented by the group’s agreement with Findel Education.

Year to date figures for the past year show a substantial growth in member sales which have more than doubled compared to the same period in 2017. Whilst existing member accounts with Findel continue to grow, an increase has also been seen in the number of new dealers taking up this exclusive opportunity to get ahead in education.

Neil Basham, Integra’s director of purchasing, said: “As our exclusive arrangement with Findel enters its third year it’s good to see the continued growth in sales and uptake by our members. There is still plenty of opportunity out there however, and the Integra team will continue to work with Findel to improve the proposition further and deliver additional growth for our members in this sector.”

Members have access to a comprehensive Education Support Programme (ESP) that provides the right training and marketing collateral, from online and printed catalogues to email templates and web collateral, to ensure they can confidently approach new and existing customers to achieve greater success in the education sector.

Chris Gibson, head of commercial contracts for Findel, said: “Since the launch of the reseller programme back in June 2016, we are delighted with the uptake, enthusiasm and growth from the Integra members who have joined us. We remain focussed on improving the programme and helping members to gain traction and sales in their local areas.”

Martyn Hammond, sales director at Whittaker Office Solutions, added: “Findel is a vital partner if you are serious about breaking into the education market, due to the breadth of specialist products it offers. This has been a significant growth area for us as a business and remains a strategic opportunity. Findel’s logistics and customer service have been excellent and this, together with a specialist catalogue, provides a strong platform to secure growth in the education arena, with minimal risk or investment.”
