Why Should You Work with Sourcing Companies in USA?
Have you ever considered outsourcing your business’ operations to the USA? If so, you’ve probably wondered if it’s worth the time and money to do so. What are the advantages of hiring USA sourcing companies? Do they even exist? Will they be cheaper than other options? Can they help you expand your business in ways that hiring local labor won’t allow? If you have questions like these, then it might be helpful to read through this article on why you should work with sourcing companies in USA to answer them!
1) It’s easier
Whether you’re looking for a supplier, collaborator, manufacturer or business partner, it’s easier to start working together if there’s someone who can act as an intermediary. That saves you time and headache because one party isn’t doing all of the work–your sourcing company should be able to find multiple manufacturers for your product so that you can compare options based on pricing and skill level. It should also handle other details like vetting them, collecting bids and negotiating payment terms. That frees up your time to focus on what matters most: running your business. There are other benefits too–for example, working with an agency might open doors that otherwise wouldn’t be available to you.
2) It’s less risky
Many people are hesitant to use a sourcing company because they don’t want their products made overseas. While that’s a valid concern, you don’t have to work directly with a manufacturer to get your products made overseas. There are plenty of middlemen that can help you, but there are also plenty of bad ones out there too. Before working with any sourcing company, it’s important to research reviews and ask for references. Because using a sourcing company is less risky than working directly with manufacturers, these reviews and references can help validate whether or not working together would be beneficial for both parties.
3) Save money
Because purchasing from a sourcing company can save your company so much money, they’re becoming increasingly popular among small and large companies alike. Here are some great reasons to start working with a sourcing company today: Lower prices: When you buy from a supplier who has negotiated pricing on a larger volume of purchases, you can expect to pay less for products than if you were to purchase from a vendor. Repeat orders: By working with an international business development company, you’ll benefit from repeat orders from clients they have been doing business with for years. Better selection: The purchasing agents at sourcing companies already know exactly what their clients want and need – which means they don’t waste time carrying inventory that gets old quickly or doesn’t sell as well as anticipated.
4) Focus on your core business
Often, big brands have strict rules about how their business can be done or who can talk to potential new suppliers. It’s not easy for a Chinese company to get around these limitations—but if you partner with sourcing companies in USA, it’s a lot easier. In fact, some of our clients say that working with us has even opened up new opportunities because their existing partners are willing to come to them for help. When you work with Chinese sourcing companies, you also get access to services like 3PL (Third Party Logistics) which is where all of your products will be packaged and shipped before they reach your customers or retail store.
5) Use specialized services
If you’re not as familiar with a supplier as you would like to be, it’s easy to make assumptions and hope for the best. But we all know better than that. Sometimes your suppliers will surprise you—in both good and bad ways—so it’s important to document who does what and how they do it. Try sending out pre- and post-trip emails asking about upcoming deliveries or shipments, or just browse through your most recent invoices to see how many times something has been ordered/received/delivered.
6) Knowledge transfer opportunities
When you work with procurement consulting firms, they’ll typically send their sourcing professionals to your facilities. If your company manufactures, then these may be engineers or designers who go on-site and help you develop new products or streamline old ones. If you run an ecommerce business, then these will likely be customer service representatives who can handle more technical support questions for your customers. These people will not only learn about how to do their jobs better but also gain knowledge about why they’re doing those jobs as well as where those skills could lead them down the road. In many cases, these insights are as valuable as any financial investment from a sourcing firm.
