Frequently Asked Questions

Supplier Relationships

1. Isn't this just like those open market Auctions that have failed so many times before?

No, PrintTiger is a closed solution that exists only between your organisation and your approved suppliers. You control which suppliers have access, and can turn that access on and off as required.

2. Quality is just as important to us as price. How does PrintTiger distinguish between a good and poor quality supplier?

PrintTiger assumes that suppliers who have access to PrintTiger are considered equal. We suggest that before giving a supplier access to your PrintTiger site, they should undergo a formal vetting process to satisfy yourself of their quality, financial standing and reliability. That way, you won't need to rely on buyers to make a quality choice and can be confident that the only distinguishing element on a PrintTiger request is the cost submitted by suppliers.

3. What will my suppliers need to access PrintTiger?

Suppliers only require access to the Internet and a Mac or PC with modern browser and email access.

4. Won't my suppliers see this as a threat?

Our experience has that suppliers who initially see PrintTiger as a threat soon start to acknowledge the benefits of the model. The overriding benefit for suppliers is that they receive very real and very valid feedback showing where they haven't and haven't been performing. By doing this, the supplier is given an opportunity to improve where they haven't been competitive and focus more intently on areas where they have.

Using PrintTiger

1. Many of the people in my company don't know how to specify a print product. How will they be able to use PrintTiger?

In PrintTiger it is possible to setup Print Templates to make it very easy to specify a product. What's more, the templates are customised and controlled by you, so if you have for example an envelope with foil, embossing, a custom enclosure and an usual size, you could set it up as a template so that your buyers could simply request a quote for a given quantity of that envelope with a given colour print.

2. What will buyers in my organisation need to access PrintTiger?

Buyers only require access to the Internet and a Mac or PC with modern browser and email access.

Secondly, we have found that our customers don't want to replace the existing purchase order system. When a Buyer selects 'Order' in PrintTiger, they will be asked for a purchase order reference, which is expected to be the reference provides by the existing purchase order solution.

The cost of PrintTiger is determined by the number of users.
