As you move towards the business end of opening the doors your shopping list can really start to grow. Though you may have accounted for all the obvious items, the devil’s in the detail, so they say.
One way to combat unexpected new costs is to invest time in finding better suppliers. Where you have to add £50 as a non-negotiable expense, chances are that you can steal £10 / £20 from other items to balance things out.
Anyone can improve the quality or efficiency of a product or service by spending more, or save on cost by sacrificing quality. Real innovation is finding a way to improve the quality while at the same time reducing cost. This is where great suppliers can help.
