The Power of One
A guide to the
benefits of switching to a single source supplier for
your industrial air needs.
Supply & Demand
How many suppliers do you think you
depend on to help run your business?
The time and costs required to process an order can vary
widely, depending on factors such as the industry, complexity of
the order and how streamlined a company’s structure is. Yet,
with all this in mind, there is no escaping the simple rule.
More suppliers = more cost, more
time and more admin
Put simply, the greater the number of suppliers that you rely
on to successfully runs your business, the more time-consuming,
expensive and admin-intense this undertaking becomes. The power
of collaborating successfully with a single supplier should not
A report by McKinsey & Company1 discovered that companies
with advanced collaboration capabilities tend to outperform
their peers, leading to increased growth. Furthermore, working
with a single source supplier can help reduce costs, add further
value beyond simply financial improvements, and even help foster
further innovation and growth.
Although there are some exceptions, buyers can usually choose
from a range of suppliers for any one item. This is certainly
the case for the compressed air and vacuum market. What, then,
are the key reasons that might persuade an organization to opt
for a single source of supply for its industrial air needs?
The Power of One
The benefits of working with a single source supplier for all
your industrial air needs can be broken down into five key
Strengthened Relationships: Building strong,
mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with a supplier
will always help improve operational and cost efficiencies. But
by dealing with just one supplier for your industrial air
equipment, your organization’s specific details can be
understood in incredible detail. This knowledge of your
organization’s processes can help a supplier offer a much
greater level of expertise.
Better Terms through Volume: The greater the
number of air technologies provided by a single supplier, the
more opportunities there are to leverage a better agreement.
This can make commercial sense, allowing you to negotiate terms
that meet your unique needs and requirements.
Lower Admin Costs: Businesses can make valuable
savings by reducing time spent on administration. Switching to a
single supplier means only processing one invoice, agreeing only
one service contract, and dealing with only one customer care
These steps help streamline your operations, cut costs and
save time, letting you concentrate on the more important jobs
that make a real difference to your bottom line.
Reduced Inventory: Partnering with a single
supplier can lead to significantly reduced lead times. By
working with one partner across all your air technologies,
common spare parts and servicing needs can be analyzed to help
improve efficiencies. This reduces the risk of downtime,
ensuring you can meet your business targets without fail.
Easier Servicing: Regular servicing and
maintenance is essential to ensuring equipment continues to
operate reliably. When working with a single supplier, with just
one servicing contract in place for all equipment on site,
maintenance checks can be undertaken in one go. This ensures
servicing and maintenance can be carried out in a timely and
efficient manner, at a time and date to suit you. Rastgar Air
