Maximize your value for money

 
While on paper cheaper may be better, a much wider range of factors must be considered to mitigate the risks and increase the potential benefits of sourcing certain components from low-cost providers. Jumping into the low-cost market blind is difficult, some would say foolish, and mistakes can be huge. Many companies learn the hard way that partnering up with an overseas company that offers the lowest piece rate, often ends up costing more money in the long run. At ClickTouch, we focus on providing the best value for money and minimizing costs throughout the entire supply chain.

When it seems too good to be true

Low-cost providers may seem cost-effective at first glance, but there are many hidden expenses that make doing business with a manufacturer halfway across the globe hardly worth the low initial costs. Next to the (often) large minimum orders, there are many extras that need to be taken into consideration. First of all, shipping will be very expensive and slow (customs clearance for example can take a long time), there are often longer waiting times and unforeseen material shortages, there are high repair and recall costs for broken components, and you will need personnel to deal with these problems.

Furthermore, and more important than any communication challenge or logistic struggle, when sourcing from low-cost suppliers there is often no guarantee of product quality, meeting your deadlines or reliable delivery performance. This can lead to frustration, delays in the production process and further expenses due to parts needing to be replaced or repaired. So, when a price seems too good to be true, it is likely too good to be true.
