Cost Management

Helping you achieve the lowest total delivered cost. That’s a commitment and a promise you’ll find only with Staples Advantage®. Through our consultative cost management approach, we’ll help you realize both hard-euro and soft-euro savings – year over year.

Product Cost Savings

With the largest buying power in the industry, Staples Advantage is able to offer competitive pricing on a wide assortment of products. Additionally, your dedicated Staples® Account Manager will monitor your core products and suggest alternative products that may be a better value. For additional savings, choose from more than 2,000 Staples® brand products that deliver name-brand quality at a great value.

Process Savings

How – and when – you order supplies can add significant costs to your overall program. Through customized education campaigns and online controls, we can influence your end-user purchasing behaviors, such as increasing online ordering and promoting order consolidation. Staples can also help you reduce the number of suppliers you use, resulting in streamlined ordering and invoice processing.

Compliance Savings

Industry research shows that purchases made outside your organization’s negotiated supplier contract can increase your total procurement costs by as much as 50% annually. We'll help drive more spend toward your negotiated Staples Advantage program through custom end-user communications, compliance reporting and Staples’ retail purchasing program.

Strategic Business Reviews

Through regular business reviews, your Account Manager will help you gain greater insight into your organization’s spend and pinpoint specific areas that can drive down costs and yield even greater savings and improvements.
