Balance Quality Standards and Budget Constraints

Sourcing managers have a lot of criteria to balance in purchasing activities — packaging solutions included. While suppliers need to work within the confinements of budgets and timelines, they must also be innovative and deliver high-quality custom case solutions. If one takes precedence over the other, businesses can suffer profit loss and have to go back to the drawing board to find replacements.

The tricky part is that many sourcing managers rely on multiple suppliers for a single custom case solution, from the design and manufacturing stages to the logistics of shipments. So they don’t just need to find these qualities in one supplier but rather several — and they have to oversee them all. The more supplier relationships there are to manage, the greater the workload, and the more chances there are for miscommunications and stalled production times.

Innovator Vs. Supplier

You save time, and get better results.

Cost Savings
With our design for manufacturing (DFM) approach, sourcing managers don’t have to worry about the scenario where a manufacturing supplier can’t replicate the work of an industrial designer. Innately designed to ease the manufacturing process, DFM delivers high-quality results at a cost-effective rate — a factor that helps you meet your savings goals.
