The Handbook of Procurement is being distributed to over 10,000 schools throughout the North of England and Scotland this week. While the new slimmer handbook is more locally-focused, the online directory edFirst.co.uk has also had significant improvements to its search functionality.

This is a more locally-focussed edition, which is good for schools, good for businesses, and good for the environment.

School Supplies Service Ltd - Headteachers and Bursars throughout the North of England and Scotland will be receiving their Handbook of Procurement this week on their desks.

A popular reference tool for buyers in the education sector, the handbook is a comprehensive directory of school supplies and services providers from around the country.

Following results of a recent survey carried out by School Supplies Service Ltd in which schools indicated that they would like to see more local businesses in the print edition of the directory, the decision was taken to divide the handbook into three regions: North, Central and South.

Commenting on the company’s decision, Managing Director Steve Meredith said “This is a more locally-focussed edition, which is good for schools, good for businesses, and good for the environment.”

Plus Online Directory Improvements

The company’s online procurement directory, edFirst.co.uk, has also seen significant improvements, with search results now grouped by distance, making it easier for schools to locate school supplies and service providers.

What is more, following a major overhaul of the online directory’s search engine optimisation, edFirst.co.uk now has over four hundred thousand indexed pages on Google and growing, which means businesses that sell to schools have the added benefit of receiving leads to their dedicated company page on edFirst.co.uk direct from Google.
