Strategic Sourcing Guide to Photocopying Equipment Procurement

Overview

Printing Machinery and Equipment market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Photocopying Equipment procurement and the cost they have to incur. Digital printing has made significant in-roads at the expense of offset printing owing to its benefits such as order flexibility, optimized stock handling, and minimization of time-to-market for printed content.

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.

The category is expected to experience a moderate price rise resulting from increasing investment in technologies and automation by commercial printing companies, but long-term price outlook remains positive for buyers as suppliers are expected to recover the technological investments soon.

Photocopying Equipment Procurement Best Practices

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

For example, 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.

Buyers prefer to engage with service providers that adopt hedging techniques to mitigate the effects of fluctuations in printing ink prices. The majority of printing inks are primarily derivatives of crude oil, the prices of which are highly volatile. Thus, engaging with service providers that adopt hedging will allow buyers to minimize the impact of price fluctuations pertaining to printing inks during the contract tenure.

Buyers must clearly define clauses pertaining to the ownership of subcontracted services that are not part of their service providers' portfolios. This is necessary to ensure service consistency and control over sensitive data that are shared with sub-contracted firms.

Risks in Photocopying Equipment procurement

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


  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Photocopying Equipment may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
  • Commercial printing is considered as a manufacturing activity in many countries, and they are required to comply with various laws with respect to environment and human safety. However, non-adherence to any of the international or regional laws can impact the brand image of the supplier as well as result in hefty fines or removal of operating license
  • 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
