Strategic Sourcing Guide to Studio Usage Procurement


Business practices within Studio Usage market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Communication Services market. In recent years, the market has witnessed a significant number of strategic collaborations, mergers, and acquisitions. Such developments have enabled the suppliers to expand their portfolio of offerings, geographic presence, and value chain. Moreover, suppliers have also gained access to new technologies and resources.

Price rise in certain essential assets and supplies required to deliver Studio Usage is making a significant addition to the supplier's overall expenditure. This could have an inflationary impact on buyer's procurement expenditure in the Studio Usage market.

Rising cost of workforce possessing core skill sets is expected to offset some of the cost savings that suppliers are expecting through implementation of lean and technology-based operations.

As a result, category managers need to closely monitor the Studio Usage procurement trends and identify changes required in their procurement environment for the category.

Studio Usage Procurement Best Practices

As market conditions become more dynamic and procurement practices get more sophisticated, category managers need to be cognizant of the best practices that work for their Studio Usage category procurement. The report offers a succinct analysis of Studio Usage procurement best practices.

For example, Service providers often hire subcontractors to assist in certain aspects of a project. Buyers must ensure that subcontractors are bound by the same terms and conditions that main service providers adhere to. Buyers should also ensure that the project budget does not exceed while negotiating with subcontractors.

Having dedicated on-site staff from the service provider is a highly recommended measure for reducing category lead time for buyers.

Buyers should engage with service providers that provide services through an hourly based pricing model. Within an hourly based pricing model, buyers would have a fair idea of the exact time required for the work done by service provider. Consequently, billing rates will be implemented accordingly.
