10 Purchasing Quotes EVERY Procurement Professional Needs to Read  

Wise Words Add Workday Perspective

We talk frequently here about print supply chain management and procurement. Logical enough, since that’s essentially what we do. But I prefer to think of it as how we can make the biggest positive difference in the lives of people like print procurement professionals. We work with them every day. Plus, of course, many of them are regular visitors to this blog.

Procurement can be a difficult and exacting job. So we’ve decided to offer some quotes to help inspire procurement professionals and make their workdays a little bit easier. (Our supply chain management and procurement technologies can make those workdays a little bit shorter, too, but more on that later.)

10 Quotes To Lift Up Procurement Pros

  1. “You have to want it enough to buy it” – Lailah Gifty Akita
  2. “When consumers purchase a Toyota, they are not simply purchasing a car, truck or van. They are placing their trust in our company.” — Akio Toyoda
  3. “Purchasing power is a license to purchase power.” — Raoul Vaneigem
  4. “When we purchase something, we are enriching other people.” — Sunday Adelaja
  5. “You cannot buy trust, you have to earn it.” — Munia Khan
  6. “There was a product which seemed attractive, expensive, portable, beautiful and simple. Everybody talked about its beauty but they bought it for its simplicity.” — Amit Kalantri
  7. “Purchasing power is a license to purchase power.” — Raoul Vaneigem
  8. “Sales success is not about convincing people to buy a product or service they don’t want. It’s about engaging with people who are interested and then helping them make the right decision. That’s the key to repeat business and referrals.” — Dave Warawa — PROSALESGUY
  9. “The wisest and best are repulsive, if they are characterized by repulsive manners. Politeness is an easy virtue, costs little, and has great purchasing power.” — Amos Bronson Alcott
  10. “Anything anybody has was purchased with the currency of time.” — Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

Inspirational Words Lead to Profitable Actions

Perhaps you got a few smiles, and even better, a bit of determination from some of these quotes. I am especially fond of the last one, because it stresses the importance of time. Efficient use of time is a very big deal to us and, we believe, to every one of our customers.

Bonus Quote from Sunday Adelaja: “Appreciate and value your time because this is the key to success.”

We were founded nearly 100 years ago on the concept of helping businesses run more efficiently, and helping the people running those businesses save time during their workdays. Our main goal is to help get people out of the office on time with our print supply chain management and procurement technologies.

Two Superior Technologies That Will Help (and You Can Quote Me)

First, consider Corporate Kiosk™ , which allows authorized employees across your entire enterprise to access preapproved printed and promotional materials as needed through an online portal. Time is saved, costs are controlled, and efficiency is maximized.

Our E(c3) Procurement Technology is a centralized e-sourcing print management platform. We use it to competitively bid and source your digital, litho and specialty print projects to a network of proven, quality vendors. That way you get the best results at the lowest cost.

Time to SAVE Time

Today’s quotes might make you feel better about your workday, but don’t stop there. Make that workday shorter with a print partner that knows the territory.

We’ve won four consecutive Best of Print & Digital awards, thanks to positive endorsements from our customers. We find that pretty inspiring. And we hope you find it intriguing, too. If so, contact Superior and ask for a FREE print supply chain management review.
