Angel Springs first approached Spiral to look at their business expenditure following a capital investment by LDC. One of the stipulations of the investment was that all areas of cost be reviewed within the first 100 days, something that may not have been done in time if had not been for the team at Spiral.
Ten years on and Spiral still look after all of Angel Springs business costs and have helped the company with their ambitious growth plans over the years. Each time Angel Springs make an acquisition they instruct Spiral to consolidate the new company into their existing supplier structure.
“We found Spiral’s service exceptionally easy to use, with very little input from our team; we simply had to give them access to our purchase ledger invoices. Spiral are able to provide savings of many thousands of pounds per year, at no cost to Angel, and with virtually no input from management. I would strongly recommend Spiral to any company; this is a fantastic service, especially in these tough economic times.”

Spiral Purchasing were engaged to work alongside the purchasing function of Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell in 2017. Since then Spiral have completed projects covering expenditure in the areas of gas, electricity, printing and photocopying, stationery and office supplies as well as printing of brochures. In each of these areas, as well as achieving savings on the expenditure, Spiral have also dramatically increased the visibility of expenditure for their client by introducing quality suppliers with comprehensive reporting abilities. Spiral continue to work with Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell to drive through further efficiencies.
“I would have no hesitation in recommending Spiral to other Care Home operators due to the professionalism of their services across a wide range of supplier areas and the clear communication of their processes.”
