LABEL REWINDERS ONLINE AND LOCALLY
With so many products available online today, it's a tough decision for purchasing agents to make when it's time to replace label rewinders. Although it's easier to order online, many companies already have contracts with suppliers to purchase products, and they tend to remain true to those contracts. The problem with that is you may find better prices online for label rewinders than your current supplier is willing to offer. You want to choose from among retailers who can meet your needs financially as well as physically. In the end, however, you want quality and price, and if your local vendor cannot match the online retailers, it is not economically sound to buy label rewinders from that source.
In spite of what you may feel as a purchasing agent, many online retailers can definitely offer you a better price than your local vendor. The problem is many companies are still stuck in the rut of ordering from local vendors who can personally deliver products or where they can go if they need something in a hurry. There is nothing wrong with maintaining this relationship, but you also need to remember that you are responsible for your company's assets, and as such, your job is to find the lowest price for quality label rewinders. By doing that, you save the company money while you still purchase quality products for various departments.
The trend is toward online purchasing, and just looking at the number of online retailers shows how popular it is. Even local office and shop retailers are increasing their online visibility to the point that they are encouraging their customers to order from their websites instead of calling or faxing orders like they did in the past. Instead of being timid about ordering label rewinders online, take the initiative and order where the price is lowest and quality is highest.
