Saving up to 1 hour a day in admin, do the smart thing and join them

We know that ordering school supplies is only one of the jobs busy SBMs have on their 'to do' list. Which is why we've created Smart Ordering - a range of great online features that can make it faster, smoother and more affordable to get all the supplies you need. 

Saving you time and your school money, these include: 

Smart Connect

Take the hard work out of getting orders signed off with Smart Connect. It’s free to use, easy to set up without any help from IT and can reduce paperwork and improve financial efficiency – saving you up to 1 hour in admin each day.

Quick Order

Keying in individual product codes can be really time-consuming. But thanks to Quick Order, you can create your basket in no time at all - simply uploaded a spreadsheet containing all the codes for every item you need.

Share Basket

To get the supplies they need, do your colleagues leave a note on your desk – handwritten lists that may contain mistakes or end up getting lost? Then tell them all about Share Basket, which lets them request the items they need by email.

When browsing our website, you may spot something you don’t need now, but know you’ll need in the future. Then all you need to do is add it to a Wishlist, which you can return to and add to your basket, as and when you need to.
