Let Us Do the Work

The procurement of printing and marketing services can be challenging for any company to manage effectively and efficiently. These categories typically involve many suppliers and require a large number of relatively low-value purchases. Just as important, printing and marketing services are complex spend categories that demand specialized knowledge and experience to master.

Many companies don’t have the expertise that these spend categories require, and it often doesn’t make business sense to acquire or develop such capabilities internally.

If your company is facing these challenges, RSN’s procurement outsourcing service may be right for you. Our sourcing professionals have an in-depth understanding of the print and marketing services categories and decades of hands-on experience in the space. In addition, our procurement experts leverage the capabilities of RSN’s powerful Sourceit software to ensure that our clients maximize the benefits they receive from their print/marketing services spend.
