Seven members of Sugro have signed up to the buying group’s Insight Service (SIS), which will formally launch in Summer 2023.

The platform is said to provide a reliable read of the group’s sales performance to the head office team, its suppliers and members. The seven members who have signed up to date are: BG Benton; Courtney & Nelson; Glencrest; RA Trading; R&I Jones; O’Reillys Wholesale; and Taylor Wholesale. There is a further group of members who are likely to come on board ahead of the formal launch in the summer, so suppliers should watch this space for further announcements.

Shruti Senapati, business development manager at Sugro UK, said: “We are really pleased that seven members have already signed up to Sugro Insight Service, having only just announced our intention to launch the platform. We know there is great interest from suppliers for the data and we can’t wait to get started.”

Tanya Pepin, managing director, TWC added: “The member recruitment process has been remarkably straight forward so far and discussions with other members is ongoing, so we should be in a great position for launch in the summer.”
