Strategic Sourcing Guide to Scanner Document Feeders Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Printing Machinery and Equipment as well as Scanner Document Feeders procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Buyers prefer to engage suppliers whose offerings span beyond Scanner Document Feeders. The practice brings in several advantages such as rationalization of supplier base, economies of scale and reduced category management cost.

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.

Rapid digitization of workspace and work processes has significantly reduced the use of paper in corporate world and therefore, industry has seen a consistent decline of print volumes. Still, the term \"paperless office\" will take years to become a common phenomenon. Print is here to stay and will co-exist with the digital document solutions in a \"paper-light\" corporate world.

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

Scanner Document Feeders Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Scanner Document Feeders. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

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 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 should engage with service providers that offer binding and finishing services in a short TAT. This helps in eliminating issues related to scoring, folding, perforating, and binding within the digital printing process.
