A company that has the ability to manufacture almost all of its products through an in-house production facility has a significant advantage over its competition. These include:
- A More Timely Delivery
- Better Quality Control of the Finished Product
- Effective Cost Control and Value Engineering
- Enhanced Communication with the Client Base
- The Ability of the Client to See Project Status
- Having Control Over the Best Technology for the Outcome of the Project
Some of these are discussed here:
Better quality control of the finished product
All orders must be taken accurately and communicated with the production coordination and in-turn the production team. Once the correct communication channels are established it is easier to follow the product through each phase until it is completed.
Effective cost control and value engineering
It stands to reason that when the “middle man’ or distributor is eliminated from the sales cycle, that cost savings can be achieved. But this can not be an excuse to take any short cuts in the production cycle. Many times, and when dealing with the manufacturer he may find that several different technologies can be utilized, and it is always a priority to select the best and most cost effective for the client. But, however, a company such as Graphic Impact does maintain alliance with companies throughout the United States so that we can explore all options.
A more timely delivery
No shipping cost, faster completion dates, and on-time deliveries are all benefits in dealing directly with the manufacturer.
Although there can be significant expense involved in possessing the right technology and a state of the art in house production facility, it is offset by the ability of the company to produce a higher quality product with faster delivery times and better communication with its clients.
