Strategic Sourcing Guide to Dictating Machines Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Multimedia Equipment market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Dictating Machines. Technology is improving productivity and creating fresh demand. Convergence of data science, automation tools, 3D printing, robotics, AI and big data has opened up multiple possibilities to better serve customers at a lower operational cost.

Buyers are moving towards longer contract durations with suppliers of Dictating Machines to benefit from value-based discounts, integrated products and services, lower renewal cost and lesser expenses on contracting activities.

The global industry has seen a gradual increase in labor cost due to several factors, such as shortage of a trained workforce, increase in minimum wages, regulations around employee benefits and declining appeal for what have been traditionally called unskilled jobs. As the employee expenses increase, suppliers are compelled to pass some of this increase to their buyers by charging higher prices.

Dictating Machines Procurement Best Practices

Sometimes, procurement functions are unable to timely alter their practices while responding to market conditions. Industry experts acknowledge that periodically reviewing procurement best practices and adopting learnings from across procurement categories can help procurement teams respond to market needs in a more agile way. This report combines our experience of other categories with Dictating Machines procurement insights and hand picks best practices that can work for category managers delving in this market.

For example, Strong R&D focus is the sign of a supplier committed to enhancing the quality and cost proposition of its solutions. Buyers should collaborate with such suppliers for development of low-cost but highly efficiency products that can bring their OPEX down.

Suppliers that have an in-house maintenance and support team should be preferred. This will ensure that maintenance and aftersales support will be provided to the buyer at reduced rates by service providers.

Buyers should engage with suppliers that can repurchase the used products at fair market value or can offer recycling capability. This assists buyers to dispose of used products in a convenient manner and honor their sustainability practices. Also, suppliers provide credits to buyers for future purchases. This reduces overall procurement costs for buyers.
