These are the days of budget cutbacks, revenue reductions, and limited resources. As purchasing requirements become more complicated and budgets become more strained, purchasing professionals are forced to continually seek innovative ways to deliver savings and efficiencies. Many organizations don’t realize just how much a purchasing cooperative can help. As an important tool in the print management toolbox, the benefits available through a purchasing cooperatively may be more valuable now than ever before.
Cooperative Buying by definition is a model that allows a group of buyers with a common interest to pool their buying power in order to negotiate more favorable pricing on goods and services. Specialized Purchasing Consultant (SPC) allows customers to gather volume of printing and copier devices, and in doing so, achieve better pricing than they could have on their own.
So how can cooperative buying help you?
There is strength in numbers. Think of it this way: you’re getting ready to place an order for a dozen multifunction printers. You call your local supplier and get a quote for 12 of them. You place the order and pay the rate for 12 mfp. Now imagine you place the same order through SPC, a purchasing cooperative that has a contract with that same supplier. Only this time, the pricing you receive is based upon the potential spend of an entire group of customers that may be ordering through that same supplier. The saving opportunities are exponential.
But it’s about more than just good pricing.
Cooperative purchasing can also deliver significant time savings in terms of contract development. Consider the amount typically spent on administrative costs associated with preparing a bid, including research, resources, and time. By allowing the contract management and administrative functions to be provided by SPC, the costs associated with these time consuming tasks can be significantly reduced, if not completely avoided.
As an added benefit, SPC utilizes a competitive bidding process and best practices.
