Building a Better Bottom Line
COS is well aware of how important it is for all companies to get the best value for every dollar they spend.
Over the years, COS has worked with many companies to take cost out of every transaction. Whether it be a lower product price, alternate product selection, implementation of a new productivity tool, or an improved operational efficiency, COS will help drive down your costs while delivering the programs and services you should expect from a vendor partner. Here are some proven ideas for your review.
|Standardize on the core products and use your volume to drive price on specific products. Our 2,000 Smart Choice catalog makes this process easy.
|Demand Evergreen remanufactured laser products. They are 100% guaranteed and offer 25-80% savings over OEM products. Every Evergreen cartridge is pretested and ISO 9001:2001 certified. Absolutely No Risk alternative.
|Single source your business products vendor and eliminate multiple purchase orders, invoices, statements, payables and internal deliveries. Streamline all of these processes and eliminate all redundant costs.
|Let COS package, ship, and deliver each order directly to each building, floor, department or cost center. Don’t use internal resources for services that COS can perform for your business. Improve your internal customer service while you reduce your distribution costs.
|Use Order Pro, our internet-based order management tools. Let each authorized person enter an approved requisition or order directly into our order management system. The order can be tracked, prices verified, and you receive an e-mail order confirmation. You can also access custom reports on line 24/7.
|Customized summary invoices. COS can provide a summary invoice which details every purchase. All items are then automatically allocated by cost center. We can provide invoices on paper, internet, EDI or HML formats. Accounting loves these ideas. These are real time-savers. Never key a COS invoice again. Also, invoices, credits and statements are available on line, as well.
|Use your office supply buying power to leverage price on janitorial, advertising and promotional products, break room, healthcare, maintenance and safety supplies, as well as furniture and facility services. Combine purchases to reduce your total procurement costs.
Develop a true business partnership. Don’t duplicate services, inventories or costs. Let COS interact with all areas of your company, and we can reduce redundant expenses and improve operating efficiencies for both of us..
