1. Always buy in bulk and save
Even if office stationery is essential consumables of any business, it is considered as least important items where cost matters. But we can save a lot on Office Supplies when we buy in bulk. You can bargain on bulk orders by strategically tying up with Office stationery supply vendor.
Also you may reduce the shipping and handling costs. For example, shipping 3 cartons at a time is much cheaper than shipping 3 cartons individually at different times. But at Shaan Stationery shipping and handling cost for corporate customer is free.
2. Avoid last minute run
Manage Office stationery inventory efficiently. Stock the stationery for longer period and order the supplies in advance to avoid last minute run. When you run out of supplies you have to rush for the store and buy in smaller quantities, hence increasing the cost of a product and transport as well as wasting your precious work time. Here Shaan Stationery comes to your rescue with its 2 Hours express delivery system you can get your urgent orders delivered in just 2 hours.
At the same time avoid dead stocks. In lure of discounts do not order unnecessary items or quantities. Just order enough quantity to avoid last minute run. At Shaan Stationery there is no difference in price whether you order 1 pen or 100. You will get the same discount as for bulk orders.
3. Order all Office needs with same supplier
There are different types of items considered as office supplies. It includes, Office Stationery, Break room and Cleaning (Janitorial) items, Furnitures, IT Products and various types of services. Placing these orders to different vendors costs you more. Consider placing these items to same vender which in combination makes big orders and hence gives you good discounts and better control on ordering process. Shaan Enterprises makes it easy, where you can buy all these items under one roof.
4. Save paper save money
Paper is a major part of office consumables. Check for any mistakes before printing. Make a draft quality printing default on your printer. This reduces the usage of ink keeping the print easily readable. Use both side of the paper, preferably use automated duplex printing (If option available). Reuse the one side used waste paper for printing, or use it as note pad. Make use most out of the paper. Keep the waste paper for recycling and support to save the earth.
5. Share the stuffs
It is the best idea to share resources amongst the staff as much as possible. Designate a shelf for the items which are used by the staff earlier but not in use now and can be used by others. This way you can build awareness of reusable item to your staff avoiding the purchase of same item again.
6. Go Green
Use green products wherever possible. Today there are lots of products manufactured in greener way like recycled paper and utility item made up of waste items ( e.g.: Pen Stand made up of waste items like empty jars).
Use above tips to make your business more profitable.
