Reducing Your Overall Purchasing Costs
At Acorn Paper, as a supplier we have always looked at the various ways that we can add value for our customers. Today, all businesses are under pressure to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. We take pride in consulting with our customers in reviewing their overall packaging requirements and presenting improvements that will reduce your overall packaging costs. We are constantly reviewing new and innovative packaging concepts with our customers to determine what is the least expensive and most effective way to package their products.
Internal Procurement Costs
Have you ever looked at your internal procurement costs? You might want to consider the following questions:
- How much does it cost to purchase several different items from various suppliers?
- What additional costs are being added to your overall administrative costs having to match all purchase orders in your accounts payable department?
- What is the cost of issuing several checks per day to various suppliers?
At Acorn Paper we are able to reduce your overall costs by offering you the ability to single source your Packaging and Janitorial products.
Reduction of Supplier Base to Lower Costs
How many different departments of each supplier does your purchasing staff interact with each day when issuing a PO? Your purchasing personnel are likely dealing with your suppliers' customer service, logistics, accounting and possibly other departments. If you multiply the number of departments you work with at each supplier by the number of suppliers you are using for your packaging, shipping and janitorial supplies, you will likely be surprised!
These are non value-added activities that you can eliminate by partnering with Acorn. Utilizing Acorn as your one source supplier for your packaging, janitorial and other supplies allows you to cut redundant transactional steps.
