Revolutionising the procurement process, Argos for Business has launched Fast Track, a same day delivery and collection service, providing increased speed and efficiency to businesses and organisations.

With access to over 20,000 Argos products, from office equipment to electrical items, corporate customers are now guaranteed same day delivery straight to their offices or premises on orders placed by 6pm, seven days a week, via Fast Track Delivery.

Businesses can select from four convenient delivery slots: 7am-10am, 10am-1pm, 2pm-6pm and 7pm-10pm, including Sunday. Customers can order by 6pm to have an item delivered by 10pm the same day, or schedule a convenient time on the next day or future days, which is beneficial for when busy schedules don’t allow time to leave the office or an emergency order is required. The delivery fee is only £3.95.

Fast Track Collection allows businesses to collect their products from 800 Argos store locations nationwide at specially marked Fast Track Collection counters, where corporate customers will find their orders ready for collection within 60 seconds. Fast Track items are clearly visible online and the Collection service is free.

Fast Track will ensure the purchasing process for organisations in the public sector, SMEs and large corporates, is quick and efficient, allowing those responsible for purchases to concentrate on their work without interruption or delay to their working day.

Danny Clenaghan, Managing Director of Argos for Business, said: “Providing speed, efficiency and almost instant access to over 20,000 quality products, Fast Track is set to transform purchasing processes for business and organisations.

“Argos for Business has always been known for convenience, and is uniquely positioned with its national network of stores and distribution centres to provide customers with the best options to fulfill their orders.  We are pleased to introduce Fast Track Collection and Fast Track Delivery, which provide immediacy and convenience for business customers.”

The easiest way for companies to take advantage of Fast Track and benefit from same day delivery or 60 second collections in store, is to utilise the new Argos Business Account, which offers a 4 per cent discount on all purchases at Argos and Homebase. It also provides extended payment terms of up to 37 days, helping businesses to manage their finances more effectively.
