CPC recently conducted a benchmarking exercise covering the 50 top products on the CPC Stationery and Education Supplies framework as purchased by a Further Education College. The College currently procure via Lyreco and their pricing was under the YPO agreement. These 50 lines were assessed on a like for like basis under the new CPC Stationery & Education Supplies framework with the pricing of Banner, the sole CPC framework supplier being a staggering 41% lower than Lyreco pricing through the YPO framework!

Banner’s competitive prices under the CPC framework will allow your budget to stretch further and the ordering process is easy taking less time away from your teaching hours. Banner have one catalogue, one contact, one purchase order, one invoice and they provide next day delivery on all orders placed by 4pm. Members who would like to switch to Banner will find that the process is quick and straightforward with the support of your dedicated Account Manager.

Read what CPC members have to say about Banner:

"The College had been using our previous supplier for several years and I was reluctant to change. However, when I realised that I could make a 35% saving on a like for like basket of stationery and a £1.2k saving on an £8k quote for exam sets and scientific calculators, it made sense to change to Banner. Not only am I making savings, but importantly the online ordering process is easy, I receive next day delivery on orders placed before 4pm and I have a dedicated account manager if I need any help to place an order. I would highly recommend Banner and would be more than happy for any CPC member to get in touch with me if they’re considering switching to Banner."
