Our approach to market minimizes total program costs by managing two key factors:
Minimizing the price of each item is essential to a cost-effective program, and it begins with purchasing. As a member of a national purchasing cooperative, we leverage its substantial buying power to purchase product at costs comparable to those of our largest competitors.
Beyond sourcing items at the lowest cost, we minimize our own operating expenses through via operational efficiencies such as sound inventory management, and warehousing and material handling metrics that compare favorably with anyone in the industry. This ensures that our low product costs translate into low customer prices!
While not as visible as price, the program costs associated with acquiring, storing, distributing, and accounting for products may constitute up to 50% of the total expense of supplying the workplace. We help our customers evaluate their purchasing costs through an initial needs analysis and ongoing business reviews, which allow us to understand an organization’s goals, requirements, and systems. With an appreciation of the customer’s current operations and objectives, we can develop and maintain a program that offers both a high level of customer service and measurable cost savings.
