Business supplies could be regarded as the backbone of your business. A lack of neccessary supplies can have a crippling effect on your business, especially when it comes to productivity, marketing and even staying legally compliant. Our clients have seen the benefits of using BCR Associates for their business. Given the recent economic environment, many businesses have been seeking ways in which they can rationalise costs. Taking advantage of our supplier network, we can increase productivity and keep expenditure to an absolute minimum whilst returning the quality of goods you require. Just like our supplier, we know the importance of reviewing the source on a regular basis to obtain the best price possible. This is a time and resource heavy process which businesses are reluctant to carry out, often resulting in unfavourable, costly contracts. By using our service, we can take away this burden and free up your resources to allow you to focus on your core business function.

- Managed Print Services
When our clients come to us wanting to reduce their annual expenditure they are often astonished by the vast costs that can accumulate from seemingly trivial processes. Printing is a key example of this opportunity to save, with up to 3% of turnover being attributed to printing and copying. Just like the overall direction of the business, a strategic approach must be taken when it comes to your Print Services. Many businesses fail to take such an approach and instead purchase printers, faxes and copiers intermittently during a period of time. Consequently, businesses are often left unaware of their overall spend, resulting in inflated costs due to a lack of planning.
Our Managed Print Services experts will work with you to overcome this recurrent issue of overspend. Specialising in auditing and advising your business, they will shape a strategy for print usage across your organisation, that is focused on delivering real cost savings.
