Finding the right furniture, fixtures, and equipment for a hotel is not a simple process.
However, a few FF&E providers offer complete “end to end” procurement services, providing hoteliers the freedom to manage their day-to-day business while the provider works to ensure the process is smooth and the property opens on time.
What You Get Working With an FF&E Provider
Elite providers of hotel FF&E with end-to-end management capabilities deliver start to finish support for your procurement project. When you hire a procurement provider with this level of professionalism, you can rely on the following:
Procurement consultants don’t just provide hospitality services – they know hospitality. Your provider should be intimately acquainted with your brand, including experience working with the brand. The best FF&E providers are well-educated on brand specification requirements and work to apply that knowledge to each project, ensuring standards are properly applied throughout.
FF&E is an investment, and it pays to be prepared. Experienced FF&E providers understand the pros and cons of countless hospitality suppliers, from pricing and shipping costs to reliability and product durability. Your provider will guide you in selecting the right furniture, fixtures and equipment product for every application, sourcing the best fit for your budget, too.
Rather than assigning one person to manage your entire procurement project, a thorough FF&E provider will delegate each specific task to individual experts in project management, design, logistics and more. These skilled professionals make up a dedicated team who work together throughout all aspects of the project. All you need to do is provide a blueprint, and they’ll provide the rest.
Why Not Do It Yourself?
Independent procurement might seem like a tempting opportunity to cut costs, but hotel construction and renovation projects require a lot of heavy lifting outside of selecting the right FF&E products.
Many complexities go into improving and building a hotel. If you choose to go the DIY route, you’ll need to be prepared to manage the entire project on your own. Imagine scheduling equipment from 30-50 different vendors and ensuring everything arrives not only on time but also in the correct order, while juggling ownership responsibilities, too. Addressing warranty, damage, or other product claims with manufacturers also requires a lot of focused attention. With all the moving parts involved, the time, risk and personal effort invested often outweighs any potential savings.
