Full Cost Reduction

It is essential for businesses to ensure that they are getting the best deal. This doesn’t always mean the cheapest, but it does mean a competitive and sustainable contract.

A good contract should include proactive account management, ongoing innovation and consistent value for money. Frequently this isn’t the case. Suppliers become complacent, while account managers change and strive for increased profits. 

Red Herring can help you to save money and reduce the cost of doing business. We ensure that suppliers are providing you with the best value across your supply chain, without compromising quality.

Achieving cost-effective purchasing

We get to know your business, how it runs and what you need, and then conduct a detailed audit. This demonstrates how you can purchase products and services of the same quality - while also delivering cost savings.

We ensure that great value and best practice go hand in hand; delivering you realistic and sustainable benefits throughout the contract. Our approach puts you in control, boosting your business through cost effective purchasing: 

  • Conduct a detailed audit
  • Demonstrate cost savings
  • Implement proactive account management
  • Deliver staff training

You benefit from detailed industry knowledge and contacts gained over many years; often delivering savings from incumbent suppliers and negating the need to transfer. If you do decide to change supplier we manage the implementation process on your behalf.

With over 30 years experience we know the office supplies industry better than any other consultancy in the market. Our ethos is one of lasting relationships and value, offering you long term support from benchmarking through contract and beyond.

Proud to support the Multiple Sclerosis Society





One of our core values at Red Herring is being a business for good. This means that we raise money by donating 10% of all fees earned to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. After a recent diagnosis, this cause is close to our hearts and we are proud to support the UK’s leading MS charity that provides practical help today and the hope of a cure tomorrow for everyone living with multiple sclerosis (MS) nationwide.

Over 100,000 people in the UK have multiple sclerosis (MS). It’s unpredictable, and different for everyone. It’s often painful and exhausting, and can cause problems with how people walk, move, see, think and feel. It can make it hard for people to work, and do the things they enjoy. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

The MS Society is a community of people living with MS, scientists, campaigners, volunteers and fundraisers. We understand what life’s like with MS, and we support each other through the highs, lows and everything in between. And we’re driving research into more – and better – treatments. For everyone.

Together, we are strong enough to stop MS.
