Cost saving opportunities in the design agencies market

Adoption of various cost optimization levers helps buyers of design services not only realize direct cost savings but also enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the design agencies market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology saving aspects

The increasing need to improve user experience across a wide range of mediums and devices has forced suppliers to develop highly responsive designs using the SVG file format and advanced CSS versions.

Responsive identities build better brand experience by adapting to different devices and mediums and helping elevate brand freshness in customers’ minds. For instance, Pentagram has developed a new identity and a website with mobile responsive design for one of Europe’s leading venture capital firms.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

Buyers generally prefer to engage with global suppliers that have expertise in working across a wide variety of sectors. However, when buyers need to target a market or geography, it is prudent for them to engage with regional service providers.

Thus, it is important for buyers to achieve the right mix of global and regional suppliers to ensure no overlaps in engagements.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers engage with suppliers capable of providing one-stop solutions that bundle various design services such as comprehensive branding, advertising and promotion, and online marketing and strategy. This allows buyers to negotiate better on service prices and reduce the operational risks involved in coordinating with multiple service providers.
