How Bulk Orders Benefit Purchasers
As a purchaser, the pressure is on you to make the smart
decisions when it comes to stocking supplies. You are expected to not only stay
under budget, but also to save money if possible. Depending on the size of your
company, it is sometimes wise to purchase supplies on an as-needed basis.
However, if you find that you are purchasing the same item on a repeated basis,
you might want to consider buying your supplies in bulk.
Purchasing supplies in bulk does not always appeal to some
purchasers because when they think of the word “bulk”, they usually equate that
to a bulk amount of money that they’d have to spend. This is not entirely
false. It’s true that a certain amount of money will be spent from the budget.
However, it is up to the purchaser to determine how much will be spent.
Purchasing ID Badges
When it comes to proper identification (ID), Badge Buddies
are the most popular choice for identifying a working staff. Depending on how
large or small your business is, you may not need a bulk amount of ID badge
holder and/or accessories, but buying them on an as-needed basis could cost
your company more money.
Specialist ID sells Badge Buddies at $2.68 a unit. This is a
reasonable price, but if you purchase 25 – 49 units, the price lowers to $2.57
per unit. When you purchase 50 -99 Badge Buddies, the price drops even more to
$2.44 a unit, 100 – 299 cost $2.22 a unit, and so forth until you could end up
paying only $1.77.
Example of How Buying
in Bulk Saves You Money
When stocking your office materials, it is important to look
at the bigger picture. Let’s use the example of a ballpoint pen. This is a tool
that a purchaser might find him or herself running to the office supply store
to restock every quarter. A 12-pack of ballpoint pens can run roughly $3.00, making
each pen worth 25 cents while a pack of 60 ballpoint pens may cost approximately
$8.00, making each pen worth 13 cents.
The 60-pack of ballpoint pens is the better buy because even
though you’re paying for more up front, you are getting more for your money.
Sixty pens at 25 cents is going to cost $15.00—almost double the amount of
buying the bulk amount at $8.00.
Saving Money with Custom
The same concept applies to stocking ID holders,
and accessories with Specialist ID.
The more you purchase, the more you’ll save, even if you won’t be using them
all at once. In the period of 12 months, your purchasing budget will show the annual
