How Your School Can Save Money & Time With Church Resources

We understand that running a school is not easy and you would like to be able to focus all of your efforts on ensuring that your students get the best educational experience possible.

The last thing you want to worry about is how much money you have left to buy the products that your school needs and then finding suppliers to match that budget.

CR acts as an extension of your school. As a member of CR, your school can take advantage of our expertise across our various procurement solutions allowing your school to save time and money. We can help your school find the right product for your school needs at the right price with the right suppliers.

Since 1998, we have delivered an extensive range of resources and procurement solutions to students and staff in over 3,500 schools across Australia through our partnerships, large member base and expertise across various sectors.

Below are 7 areas CR can help your school save time and money through our aggregated procurement solutions:

Travel

CR is partnered with Campus Travel to help support your school’s travelling requirements. Whether you are coordinating group trips for academic, recreational or sporting activities, we can help you out.

Our solution doesn’t stop with organised trips to and from school. Campus can also manage staff corporate travel including flights, car hire and accommodation bookings whether they are regional, interstate or international.

Energy bills are forever increasing so your school needs to find a way to minimise those costs. CR has partnered with AGL to give our members exclusive discounts  that are usually only available to larger corporations.

We not only help you save money on face value but we provide advice and strategic risk management to help your school find ways to reduce your usage rates and minimise your overall energy consumption.

Technology

In today’s day and age, technology is becoming an increasingly important asset in the education sector. Whether your school is looking for laptops, desktops, tablets, AV solutions or a whole classroom technology infrastructure, we can help you choose the right products at the right price range for your school. CR has access to leading brands that include Apple, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Acer and Toshiba at exclusive member pricing.

Employee Benefits

Happy staff means more motivated staff. School teachers often work long hours both inside and outside the school and sometimes this hard work goes unnoticed. Reward your staff by signing up to our employee benefits scheme, Your Salary Benefits. Our rewards program will help you with attracting, recruiting and retaining the best employees at zero cost.

The scheme is completely free to join and allows your staff access to a wide range of products and services at exclusive member prices ranging from electronic goods through to personal insurance.
