There are many different places for people to order coffee and breakroom supplies – just Google what you are looking for and you will come across an almost infinite number of sites. You can drill down on products and find their prices, payment options, delivery terms, and more. Finding all the products in your break room, however, may require lengthy research and buying from several different sites.
Two things to remember:
1) time is money (TI$)
2) while products can be commoditized, great service cannot be. More often than not, great service will save you more money than shopping for the lowest prices. Below outlines areas where a full-service provider will save you money:
Equipment & Repair Service Provided
If you place your orders through A.H. Coffee Service, we provide the equipment and the repair service for this equipment at no charge. Our drivers clean the units, and technicians replace them if there is an inherent problem or lime build-up. We also schedule water filter changes to keep the coffee and water tasting great. The money saved from not having to pay for service calls and not having to buy new coffee brewers or water coolers will outweigh commodity buying.
Choose from Several Easy Ways to Order Break Room Supplies
Just call our Customer Service Representatives and they can assist you with your order and answer any questions you may have. In today’s fast-paced work environment, customers may forget to place an order. To assist with this, we can make friendly reminder calls the day before scheduled delivery dates.
These work well and provide our customers with the option of receiving a confirmation receipt.
Faxes are tried and true but the most time-consuming of all. Not only do you need to have a printed copy of the order, but you also need to take it to the fax machine and wait for a confirmation. That being said, if faxes are your preferred method of communication, we’re ready and willing.
This option has become our fastest growing and most common for ordering. It offers several tools that provide helpful information that saves time (TI$). It gives you the ability to look at previous orders which assist in calculating week-to-week volumes and identifying unusual volume spikes.
Set up your own shopping list for the items you want to order. Once you have established your list and ordered the first time, you simply click the re-order button. This allows you to create a new order by adjusting the quantities from the previous order. The website lists our full menu with customer pricing, shows pictures of the products, identifies sale items, and offers a note box to make comments when placing an order.
PO numbers can be entered and will include the order’s total dollar amount. After the order has been placed, an automatic confirmation email is sent to the customer’s email making it easy to keep track of orders being processed. Our online site is also very popular for people ordering outside of normal business hours and for the public transportation commuters who place their orders on the way to work or home.
One-Stop-Shop for Convenience
A.H. Customers can buy a wide variety of coffees, coffee supplies, condiments, paper products, utensils, cold beverages, snacks, 5-gallon bottles of water, flavor seltzer waters, and nitro coffees. With added responsibilities and heavy workloads, customers want to simplify their job through time management (TI$).
The “Fill & Bill” Ordering
Fill and bill is another service we offer. For a slightly higher cost, A.H. Route Drivers will manage the inventory in your supply closet. We will set a standard inventory level with you and then our Driver takes it from there to manage the rest.
Product Freshness & Quality
Product freshness and quality are guaranteed. If there is an issue with any of our products, A.H. Coffee Services stands behind them with a 100% product guarantee.
Remember, your time is money. A full-service company will both save you money and make your job easier.
