Cost Saving Opportunities in the QA QC Certification Services

The adoption of cost optimization levers allows buyers of QA and QC certification services to 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 QA QC certification services 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

EMATs are used in the ultrasonic testing technique. These transducers can be used for characterization of properties of materials, detecting flaws in the materials, and measuring the thickness of various materials.

Big Data and analytics play a significant role in helping auditors sort and analyze large volume of data to help suppliers identify risks in business operations and financial reporting, helping them deliver more relevant QC audit reports.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

Buyers should engage with suppliers that have accreditation from different standards bodies such as ISO and ANSI. This will help buyers to advertise themselves in the market and attract more clientele, as these standards bodies have a good reputation in the market.

Buyers should engage with an integrated service provider that have capabilities to inspect, test, as well as certify products/services for safety and regulatory compliance. Before engaging in this practice, companies need to evaluate all the pros and cons of the service provider, since some service providers may not have expertise in all the services they deliver.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers expect suppliers to possess capabilities such as inspect, test, and certify products/services as this can help in reducing the cost. Buyers expect their certification firms to grant access to their audit process to in-house QC teams as this can help the in-house team to understand mistakes in their processes if any.
