Printers, copiers, multifunctional devices, scanners, software programs along with their respective service and supply agreements are an integral and costly component to all businesses. Yet, most organizations lack the time, resources, or in-house expertise to implement a global print strategy to contain these costs, much less determine their true current spend. And unfortunately, the traditional print cost containment approach is a reactive model triggered by a cap-ex event or imminent contract renewal. This antiquated methodology to save money, requires Supply Chain and/or IT to evaluate a myriad of sales proposals or internally publish a time consuming, limited scope RFP.
ProcureAmerica’s print assessment process takes a benchmarked industry specific approach that incorporates both financial and operational goals all culminating into a concise Enterprise Strategic Plan (ESP). The result is an executable program that fits current and future print trends, enhances vendor service levels, delivers expense transparency, and net cost reduction averaging over 40%.
The Glendale Unified School District contracted with ProcureAmerica to analyze our costs and operations associated with document management expenses. Through this project the District will save over $2.5 Million during the next 5 years thanks to PA’s comprehensive analysis, custom strategic plan, and full service program implementation. I would highly recommend their services.
