Procurement agent services

What is a procurement agent?

A Procurement Agent acts on behalf of a client to manage the acquisition of materials and products required on a project. ILYA’s in-house procurement team specializes in FF&E (furniture, fixtures, and equipment) and has highly specialized knowledge and extensive experience in hotel FF&E procurement.

Hotel FF&E

Hotel FF&E is generally divided into the following three categories:

  1. Furniture/furnishings – carpet, rugs, curtains, furniture, decorative lighting fixtures, artwork, signage, etc.
  2. Telecommunications/specialized equipment – hotel I.T. systems, PBX, CATV, kitchen equipment, banquet equipment, etc.
  3. Operational fixtures/accessories – beds/mattresses, bedding, small appliances, room accessories, tableware, uniforms, banquet furnishings, etc.

Managing procurement of these disparate products under one umbrella eliminates redundancy, excess, and waste. ILYA executes integrated budget estimates, orders, and deliveries of items from all three categories to generate optimal procurement.
