Such strategic engagements can help buyers with savings associated with economies of scale and management of a much smaller supplier base.

Cigarette Maker Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Cigarette Maker procurement.

For example, Competitive bidding as a cost optimization tool is extremely potent but should be carefully deployed only when there is no significant differentiation among Cigarette Maker suppliers.

Buyers should invest in benchmarking studies that help category managers to improve their knowledge on market pricing or billing rates of service providers. This helps them to not only save costs but also increase their negotiation power.

Buyers should assess the level of adoption of the latest technologies by suppliers to assess cost-saving opportunities and quality that can be provided by the latter. For instance, the adoption of technologies such as cloud computing will enable suppliers to reduce their internal computing hardware requirements for operations such as CAD and CAM. This can, in turn, enable them to reduce their operating costs, thereby suppliers can offer products at lower rates to buyers.
