Strategic Sourcing Guide to Paper Shredding Machines Procurement


Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Office Supplies as well as Paper Shredding Machines procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Service providers are incurring incremental expenditure on technology with the procurement and operation of advanced technologies and software to improve efficiencies and better serve the customers. Increasing technology-related expenditure is expected to have an inflationary impact on the procurement price offered to the buyers.

In a fragmented market, where differentiation is difficult to achieve, pricing is more often set by the level of competition. One of the major challenges faced by the global suppliers is the intense competition which is frequently leading to over-discounting.

Offices in large corporations and organizations generate a lot of solid waste every day. Many organizations are now adopting practices to reduce their environmental footprint. In line with these aspirations, demand for recyclable office solutions and supplies is increasing. Parcel/courier packaging, stationery, small equipment and consumables are either being recycled or being manufactured with recycled materials.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.
