Before You Choose A Stationery Supplier

If you are a growing organization, your office supply order is certainly quite small but has the potential to grow over time. You want a supplier that will grow with you, and one that will accept your terms while delivering quality products and services.


What you need to look out for

The Price

You certainly want high-quality products, but you also want them at a reasonable price. While your numbers may not grant you the quantity discounts you wish for, you still want your supplier to give you the most competitive prices. You may choose to have your own delivery plan if the supplier’s delivery cost is too high and eating into your margins.

Service

How long does it take for your supplier to deliver the order? Well, most companies will wait until they are on their last batch of printing paper to place an order, and so you want your supplier to be speedy in delivery. They should at least honor the agreed timelines.

Partnerships

You do not want a supplier who is too busy for your business. No matter how small your business is at the moment, it has an upward trajectory, and so they should join you in looking into the future. They should make you feel important and appreciated regardless of how little you are in their chain. That means timely deliveries and attempts to meet you in person to establish what the company is about as well as ways to improve the value of services. If they are too busy for you, then they are the wrong partner to take into the future.

Variety

We all get stuck on one product, but what happens when it goes out of stock indefinitely? A good supplier will introduce you to new products that work as well or better than what you are used to, ensuring that you are covered in case of outages.
