Quality Imaging Solutions is not your average source for printer cartridge supplies, as we are much more than the traditional “Big Box Store”. We saw an opportunity to be more than just a transactional supplier to our customers, by providing proven value-driven results and earning a seat at the table when it comes to their decisions on printer fleet make and models, managed print solutions, SKU consolidation, data categorization cleanup, and printer consumable choices – for a total cost of ownership assessment.

The bottom line is that most companies just can’t quantify their print expenses, even if it is one of the largest items in the budget. It’s hard to manage expenses when you don’t know exactly where the money is going. At Quality Imaging Solutions, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the kind of in-depth analytics and assessments that can not only bring your print spend to light, but pinpoint areas of potential savings simply and easily.
Once you understand exactly where your print budget is going, you can harness the power of our MPS toolset for rapid cost reduction, boosted productivity, and a streamlined workflow.
Having clean and organized data is vital to any organization who wants a clear view of their spend. Without it, procurement teams have no idea what their spend is on for particular category or what it is with a particular supplier. The old adage comes to mind “You don’t know what you don’t know, until you know it.” This is called the Dunning-Kruger Effect, coined by two Cornell University psychologists, David Dunning and Justin Kruger back in 1999. Essentially, The Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias where people wrongly overestimate their knowledge of a particular subject and lack of self-awareness prevents them from accurately assessing the subject at hand.
When it comes to printer cartridge supply spend, often we see spend reports from customers that was generated by their existing supplier – and they are riddled nomenclature inconsistencies making it very difficult to sort and filter and see just what the spend actually is by SKU. At QIS we find this an unacceptable practice, so during the savings assessment process we provide customers with a cleaned-up spend report, showing them how we can reduce the number of SKUs being ordered by their internal stakeholders - allowing us to leverage their spend and drive costs down.
In Procurement, having a system full of misclassified spend categories can mean lost opportunities to see where the money is going in their tail spend. Tail spend (also known as maverick spend, rogue spend, and dark purchasing) occurs when an employee, perhaps with the best of intentions, goes outside the normal process of procurement to acquire needed items and services. Often this takes place on an as-needed basis with no policies in place to direct the purchases.
Let’s talk numbers. It’s hard to quantify the benefits, but if you have billions of spend, by investing in a high-quality data classification service, even if you only find 1% of savings from the data, you have more than covered your costs, and it's likely this percentage could even be higher.
And it’s not just the financial savings. If you've been having issues for some time, even years, imagine the number of meetings, projects and time spent trying to fix this issue over that time, without resolution.
QIS has partnered with an industry-leader on data cleanup and classification, so if you find that your organization could benefit from help in his area, reach out to us today!
