6 ways your partnership with Officeworks is better for business

'Imagine what you could achieve if you had someone you could trust to take care of all your office essentials.

Administrative to-do lists can spiral out of control when your business is in growth mode, but by partnering with Officeworks, you can take a step back and focus on the bigger picture.


The most valuable resource for the owners of medium and growing businesses is time. Imagine what you could achieve if you had someone you could trust to take care of all your office essentials… You do: Officeworks.

Officeworks business specialists can provide a total business solution – arranging everything from furniture and office fit-outs, to computers, phone access, print and promotions, cloud software and tech support. 

Here are six ways a partnership with Officeworks is better for business.

Choice

Have you ever stopped to think about the many different items that keep your office up and running? Desks, chairs, computers and printers are obvious examples, but what about paper, pens, folders, storage files, ink cartridges – and the many other bits and pieces that you probably don’t take much notice of (until they run out).

Officeworks caters for all these needs, stocking more than 35,000 products – many more than you see in-store! In one shop, you can pick up all manner of necessities: stationery, reception chairs, computer monitors – even cleaning and bathroom products.

Speed

Don’t have time to leave the office for a stationery run? You can shop the entire Officeworks range online, wherever you are, and choose from several delivery options (all of which are free when you spend over A$55).

Metro orders placed before 11:30am on weekdays will be delivered on the same day^; orders placed after that time can be delivered the following day, or you can select the free two-hour Click & Collect option for stocked items at your preferred store. While big and bulky items such as furniture may take a day or two, they’ll also be delivered directly to your workplace.

Whether shopping online or in-store, you can complete your purchases quickly and securely using the Officeworks app on your smartphone. It’s a particularly handy tool when you’re browsing the shelves in person: simply scan products onto your device and pay at any mobile point of sale.

Convenience

Officeworks sells more than just office supplies: it also provides an assortment of services. Need something professionally printed? Officeworks can take on any job, big or small – be it letterheads, banners, annual reports or fridge magnets! If you need some creative direction, the in-house graphic design service can assist with logos and branding, business stationery, signage and more.

Perhaps you’re planning to set up a new office, or refurbish an existing space? Through the Officeworks workspace solutions service, a business specialist can manage the project from start to finish – offering suggestions to help you use your space efficiently and prepare for future growth. 

You can sign up for as much or as little as you want – anything from a new height-adjustable desk to a suite of bespoke furniture – and enjoy the convenience of having everything sourced, delivered and installed for you, on time and on budget.

Best of all your business specialist can come to you: either at your current workplace or future office. If you’d prefer to head to your local Officeworks instead, the in-store business specialist team can assist you at more than 100 of the 165+ stores around the country.

Value

With an Officeworks 30 Day Business Account, you can link multiple staff cards to the one account – making it easy to consolidate and monitor all purchases. Plus, you have the option to buy now and pay up to 30 days later, interest free.

If you ever find an identical item at a lower price elsewhere, Officeworks will beat the price by 5 per cent.*

Bundled solutions

There’s no denying that technology plays a significant role in our lives these days, but keeping all your devices in working order – not to mention staying abreast of all the latest developments – can eat into your time. That’s why Bundle IT at Officeworks is an ideal solution: it’s a one-stop-shop for all your business technology needs, combining hardware, software and IT support into one convenient package.

For a fixed monthly price, you can choose one of 12 bundles to suit your requirements. Each bundle has different features but all include the essentials, such as remote IT support and access to the latest cloud storage and software. As an Officeworks Bundle IT customer, you can also amortise the cost of your business IT across 36, 48 or 60 months, for better cash flow and budget management.

Flexibility

You might have started your business with just one or two employees, or even on your own, but when it comes time to take on extra staff there are many practicalities to consider. This is where an Officeworks business specialist can step in – organising additional workstations and laptops for your new hires, or extra storage space for your mounting collection of business records. They can also suggest strategies to ensure you continue to work in comfort – perhaps introducing privacy screens or extra collaborative spaces.

As your numbers grow, you can also outsource various tasks across the realms of administration, marketing, productivity and training, thanks to Officeworks’ range of prepaid business services. With more employees on board, it might be time to invest in a course such as warden and evacuation training or receipt management, or assign the daily milk run to a delivery service. 

You could take advantage of several marketing services – such as consumer research and search engine fundamentals – to help you attract new customers. Signing up for these and other services is as simple as adding them to your cart online or making a purchase in-store.

Whichever stage your business is at, Officeworks can oversee everything behind the scenes, freeing up your time to bring big ideas to life. Now that’s better for business.
