Pentahotels represents a new generation of hotels. Known for its unique interior design and neighbourhood feel, the lifestyle brand stands for true innovation in the industry’s 4 star segment.  With 28 hotels across seven countries on two continents, Pentahotels offers travellers comfort and style in a relaxed atmosphere. Spending around £1m on food each year, we provide procurement services for their six hotels in the UK.

Introducing synergy and consistency
Following a series of acquisitions, Pentahotels had inherited a legacy of different supply solutions with different suppliers serving each hotel.  We set about introducing synergy and consistency by looking at the quality of each product, the service being received and the price being paid across all hotels.  Our specialist account management team introduced pricing reviews and managed the price of key commodities to return double digit savings.

Unrivalled volume and superior negotiating power
We’re procurement experts and work in partnership with our clients, giving them access to the pricing advantages of our unrivalled volume and superior negotiating power.  Our specialist account managers work closely with our clients to give them visibility of market fluctuations and deliver against their definition of value. For Pentahotels this means monthly reviews of all fresh categories and advance visibility of other ranges like grocery or frozen.

Making it easy with eProcurement
We’ve introduced our market leading eProcurement system for Pentahotels. A full procurement to payment system, it’s a simple tool for managing electronic orders and paperless ordering. The system delivers an enhanced service with stock control and recipe costing modules also available.
