Why it’s Important to manage Copier and Printer Costs
The mismanagement of company printer usage can get out of hand very quickly if not properly tracked. Having to remember to keep track of any printer or copier related business can be very exhausting and make one think it may be an unnecessary task. But expenses like these add up quickly, causing the company to unnecessarily lose money on a seemingly small, but not insignificant, indirect expense. Even if your organization d keeps track of general printer and copier usage, there are often be hidden fees, auto contract renewal clauses and extra costs not always easy to spot. ACC takes pride in the diligence we use to keep track of hidden copier and printer contract fees because, as it is with many indirect expense categories, the everyday expenses add up.
Understand the Performance and Cost of your Copiers and Printers
Before your business, university or PE portfolio can begin the process of reducing copier, printer or toner expenses, it’s important to understand exactly how much you’re spending annually. The ACC cost reduction team works vigorously with your business to understand where your copier / printer expenses originate. When engaging ACC, our team comes on site to your locations and collects physical invoices. We then itemize spend for each category we review and compare the resulting baseline to similar organizations, standard market rates and other available data. By first analyzing your purchasing activity, we are able to create an expense reduction strategy and realize real savings across your ongoing copier and printer costs.
Cost Reduction Process for Toners, Printers and Copiers in Every Vertical
ACC has national purchasing agreements and relationships that most organizations cannot achieve independently. We review your expense history across all vendors in each category to establish a baseline. We work with your incumbents as well as our trusted network to achieve meaningful savings. Once our team has established new pricing for your organization, we assist with implementation to lower your Copier and Printer pricing, regardless if we strike a deal with your existing suppliers or move to a new one. Once your new pricing is implemented, our proprietary audit process tracks spending across your organization to ensure your team is purchasing items and services included in your contract, which maximizes savings.
Incumbent Supplier vs. New Supplier
Many businesses have long term relationships with suppliers of all types. While these relationships can be beneficial to a single category or department, it rarely benefits your company as a whole. Typically, if businesses spend too much time with one supplier, when it’s time to renew a contract, pricing doesn’t change. Because your business has spent so many years with one supplier, the supplier is trusted to give you the best price, when many times, you end up paying far above the normal market price. ACC makes sure your business receives the best possible price in whatever category that may be. If your company has received certain benefits or perks from your current vendor or supplier, often times ACC is able to negotiate these same perks with a new supplier.
