For the year April 2022 – March 2023 ASW’s Members saved £4.3m (inc unrecoverable vat).
2022 saw high inflation rates flowing through into product prices with factors including the Ukraine war, Covid, Brexit, product shortages, increasing transport costs, increasing labour costs and worldwide demand increases contributing increases. Of course any percentage price increase is lower if the starting point is lower. ASW Members have benefitted from our low prices so that the £ increases experienced have been as low as possible.
In total, Advantage South West members have saved over £60m since the procurement consortium was formed in 2008.
