Integra Business Solutions saw the introduction of over 16 new suppliers to its continually evolving purchasing portfolio in 2019. Some of these new suppliers represented a shift towards opportunities within new categories such as medical supplies and healthcare whilst others saw an extension to existing product areas.
Highlights from 2019 include a 94% growth in medical supplies and healthcare, a 54% growth in confidential shredding and an uplift of 83% in facilities supplies. The momentum in other new product categories is starting to build with training and marketing support being key aspects to the successful onboarding of members. Integra has also been instrumental in standardising data for inclusion on back office and ecommerce solutions where this has otherwise been impossible to achieve.
A key focus for Integra in 2020 will be continued diversification and investment in a sustainability initiative for members, designed to help them make and influence positive social and environmental change.
