Good purchasing managers and buying agents are always looking for ways to save their companies money. For example, you probably found this blog post by being proactive and searching for a phrase like, “how to save money on poly bags?” Well, there are a couple ways you can try to do that. One way is to talk to your current supplier and see if they can work with you on price. Another way, which requires more work but can be much more fruitful, is to solicit quotes from multiple sources and ultimately switch suppliers. Whatever you decide, we believe there are a few things you should keep in mind when trying to save money on poly bags.
Instead of focusing solely on how to save your company money, we recommend a different approach: focusing on finding a supplier who brings your company value. We define value as the combination of product quality, reliability, customer service, and competitiveness.
First, let’s focus on quality. In our case, we always strive to produce the best poly bags for our customers. That means working closely with you to determine the appropriate dimensions, strength, blends, and additives for your applications, and then creating bags that meet those exact specifications. If your supplier can’t or won’t do that, then none of their other qualities, however positive they may be, won’t matter.
Next comes reliability. We always plan our production schedules so that you get you the bags you need when you need them. This means intelligent scheduling of planned jobs, leaving enough room for the inevitable hiccup or last-minute job along the way, and working with shippers who are quick and trustworthy.
Third, customer service is often overlooked when agents are looking for a new supplier. We recommend emailing or calling a potential supplier before you even switch just to see how responsive they are. If they don’t return your call within a day or take a week to reply to your email, will they treat you any better when you’re a paying customer? Maybe, but why take the risk? We pride ourselves on customer service that goes over and above before, during, and after the sale. Go ahead and see for yourself: call us at (800) 272-2634 or email us at to see if we can meet your needs.
Finally, let’s talk about competitiveness, or price. It’s tempting to narrow your search to the supplier with the absolute lowest pricing, but we recommend against it. What we’ve traditionally seen with suppliers who have rock-bottom pricing is that they often cut corners in other areas to make up the difference. For example, they may not be using the high-grade resins you need for your applications, they may not have responsive customer service, or they may use slow, unreliable freight companies. Of course, this isn’t to say we think you should overpay for your poly bags or even that our own prices are high. Rather, what we’re saying is that our prices are extremely competitive, especially when you consider the total value you receive from doing business with us—customized bags made from high-quality resin, unmatched reliability, and customer service that goes over and above what you would expect.
As you can see, saving money on poly bags is more complicated than just seeking out the lowest price you can find. There are a number of factors you should consider, and we believe we’ve positioned ourselves to meet all of your most important requirements in a very competitive way.
