Successful procurement strives to achieve a balance between cost and functional quality. The majority of a company's knowledge is contained in its documents. Yet 50% of all organizations admit not managing this essential function well.
If you're not taking a close look at where every print dollar is going as a whole, there's a good chance you're not getting the best value from your suppliers. It may also mean that you have inadequate control of your brand, both of which are likely negatively affecting your company's bottom line.

Indirect, Direct or Supply Chain Procurement
You need print supplies for your business. Keep your business running efficiently with the help of the Dryden Group. We offer procurement for:
Indirect procurement: In this case, your print supplies are goods not for resale (GNFR). These items are the ones you need to operate your business each day rather than the products you sell to your customers. Our consultants communicate with a large number of buyers and sellers to help you find the best cost-effective products.
Direct procurement: You use these supplies to create a finalized item for customers. The costs are measured at goods for resale (GFR) prices.
Supply chain: This type is not exactly a type of procurement. However, a consultant will examine your entire supply chain to see how you can send and receive items efficiently.
At Dryden Group, we mainly look at your indirect spend. Our supportive team wants to know what you need to make your business work, and we are committed to helping you get it. This process is one of the most complex tasks associated with print sourcing and procurement, yet it goes ignored often. Our team understands the value of the indirect procurement process and will engage in several practices to ensure that we meet your needs.
