Strategic Sourcing Guide to Crutches 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 Crutches 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 Crutches. 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.

Buyers that have multiple locations under management are increasingly opting for a single supplier who can deliver the preferred solutions in a consistent manner across locations. Often suppliers with a physical presence across key geographies are preferred in such cases.

Crutches Procurement Best Practices

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Crutches category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Crutches procurement best practices.

For example, Large organizations seek engagement with global category suppliers. However, they must try to achieve the right blend of regional and global suppliers in order to ensure the delivery at locations where global players do not have necessary capabilities.

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.

Category buyers should invite bids from all potential service providers that have the ability to meet the overall requirements. Bids must be evaluated based on pre-defined parameters such as financial strength, reputation, offerings, geographical presence, and track record. Buyers can use standard scorecards to evaluate service providers and provide necessary feedback to rationalize the given scores. This helps in the effective documentation of decision-making processes.
