Purchasing Audit

Does your company suffer from any of the following issues?

  • Difficulty in reducing costs?
  • Concern at whether you are achieving the most competitive print prices?
  • Worry at whether you are using appropriate suppliers?
  • Frustration at the resource and time taken for purchasing?

The Print & Procurement purchasing audit has been designed to provide a swift but thorough overview from a highly experienced purchasing professional on opportunities to make purchasing at your company more cost-effective, whether this is through changing process, altering strategy or reviewing suppliers.

By the end of the process, your company will understand what savings can be achieved through:

  • Understanding company spend
  • Creating a purchasing policy and strategy
  • Ensuring that best price is obtained and appropriate suppliers approached for jobs
  • More efficient ordering techniques

This process is aimed at all printers. It will be particularly useful to companies which do not have a centralised procurement function.

The audit will cover:

  • Review of procurement strategy
  • Investigation of purchasing personnel structure, supply base and supplier management systems and recommendations for opportunities
  • Review of specification
  • Examination of most common products and recommendations for cost savings by changing specifications
  • Review of ordering process
  • Investigation of ordering process and recommendations for opportunities. Review of stock-holding strategies.

Following the print audit, Print & Procurement will also be available to provide:

Staff training

  • Assistance with tender creation and management
  • Creation of supplier management processes and systems
