Factory Evaluation

Does your company suffer from any of the following issues?

  • Unsure of how buyers perceive your factory?
  • Concern that you may be losing valuable tender work through not being able to fulfil the requirements of the tender process?
  • Frustration at being rejected by buyers?

Printing companies can expect to be visited by many buyers.  However, it is rare that any meaningful feedback on your printing company is given by visitors.  Therefore we offer a visit by an experienced print buyer with a full report to highlight what a buyer will see at your printing company.

An evaluation form is also included to cover remote evaluations.  This exercise will ensure that any areas which may be an issue for buyers will be reported back to the management.  In addition it will highlight areas of excellence, which may provide useful sales information.

This product is aimed at all print sector companies that receive pre-qualification forms or visits from buyers.

The report will comprise:

  • Result of credit check.
  • Review of completed evaluation form.
  • Review of factory visit.
  • Overview of customer references.
  • Recommendations for resolving any issues that buyers may highlight.

Areas covered include:

  • Financial overview
  • Quality control procedures
  • Paper management
  • Despatch
  • Environmental issues
  • Disaster recovery

The review can be adapted to take account of any specific requirements requested by yourselves.

Following the print audit, Print & Procurement will also be available to provide assistance with tender responses.
