Strategic Sourcing Guide to Blood Bags Procurement

Overview

Medical and Surgical Consumables market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Blood Bags procurement and the cost they have to incur. Despite increasing costs on almost all fronts, suppliers are resisting a drastic price increase due to intense competition where market players are willing to increase their market share at the cost of profitability. Therefore, buyers can expect pricing status quo in most cases, or only negligible to marginal price increases in some cases.

Many suppliers are expanding within the value chain to offer integrated solutions. With this new approach, suppliers can offer a wide portfolio of solutions and position themselves for large contracts that go beyond just Blood Bags. Buyers also find the benefits of volume buying, consolidation of supplier base, efficient co-ordination in case of an event and less spending on category management.

Companies that serve multiple markets are increasingly facing the dynamism in regulatory frameworks across countries. Coupled with increased costs across the value chain, suppliers are hard pressed to alter their business models and pricing structures to remain relevant in the market.

Blood Bags Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Blood Bags. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Buyers must clearly define clauses pertaining to the ownership of subcontracted services that are not part of their service providers' portfolios. This is necessary to ensure service consistency and control over sensitive data that are shared with sub-contracted firms.

Category managers must ensure that they have clearly identified and listed down potential negotiation levers to maximize the value of their category spend before entering into contract-related discussions with service providers. Common negotiation levers to maximize value include deadlines, terms related to payments, (including fees, expenses, and payment timelines) and assistance required from the buyer's organization.

Large organizational buyers can leverage their scale of operations to initiate competitive bidding between suppliers. Competitive bidding would enable buyers to have a better visibility of the market prices and may help identify suppliers that offer the most competitive price offering viz-a-viz other players.
