Strategic Sourcing Guide to Faxswitch Machines Procurement

Overview

The market for Printing Machinery and Equipment and its sub-segments such as Faxswitch Machines are at an interesting intersection. Suppliers expect an increase in OPEX from rising prices of paper and ink which has resulted from rising input costs and to some extent, from shortening supply. Still, declining use of paper and intense competition will offset this incremental cost.

Many large and mid-sized companies, especially from legal, financial, healthcare and real estate sectors are still heavily reliant on paper. Off late, there is a growing concern on security of documents - whether printed or stored digitally on a connected printing device. To address this concern, suppliers are coming forward with solutions that offer print and document security and monitoring services.

High procurement costs put a hindrance for buyers looking for upgrading or replacing a printing asset. As an alternative, suppliers are offering cost-effective re-engineering capabilities such as retrofitting of existing equipment with new systems.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Faxswitch Machines is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Faxswitch Machines Procurement Best Practices

Faxswitch Machines procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Faxswitch Machines procurement strategy.

For example, Buyers should compare critical capabilities of suppliers based on security policies regarding materials provided, types of printers used, print color guarantees and TAT and onboard those that can offer a one-stop solution.

Buyers should engage with regional service providers of digital print as this will reduce the procurement lead time. Shipment of goods from regional service providers takes lesser shipment time compared with shipment from global print service providers.

Buyers would benefit from engaging with service providers that display a high level of adoption of technologies such as web-to-print, workflow automation software, and remote proofing. These technologies would, in turn, enable buyers to achieve savings in their printing budgets, improve print quality, provide better visibility over the printing project, and offer greater flexibility over the printing project.

Risks in Faxswitch Machines procurement

Faxswitch Machines procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Faxswitch Machines procurement. Some examples include:


  • Suppliers may face a situation where they are unable to honor a contract in its entirety due to shortage of resources, finances or capabilities. While contractual terms safeguard buyers from the non-performance, their operations could still face massive disruptions due to suppliers' non-performance
  • Paper, ink, other raw materials, and fuel form important cost components for the broader print services category. However, the supply of raw materials such as fuel and paper is highly dependent on demand-supply fluctuations. Any increase in prices of these raw materials may critically affect the cash flow of commercial print suppliers and subsequently affect their ability to invest in CAPEX projects
  • Contract-related risks where unfavorable credit terms may severly penalize buyers for delayed payments or entitle the supplier to demand pre-payments or shorten the payment terms are not very common in the category but they do exist in certain situations where buyers' liquidity or financial health is in question
