Diagraph Marking & Coding focuses on partnering with customers in every aspect of their coding and labeling operations, including working closely to develop a unique supply strategy that ensures our customers have the appropriate coding and labeling supplies on hand for when they need them. This holistic approach to partnership allows Diagraph to maximize efficiencies for customers and drive tangible value throughout a long-term partnership. When working with customers to develop a custom supply strategy, we take a close look at the following: Production Capacity – Run rates are an important variable when considering how much ink, solvent, ribbon, and wear parts to keep on hand. We take a close look at your expected production capacity as well as your historical production capacity to make a recommendation on the quantity of supplies that is best for you to keep on hand to ensure you are never out of fluids or critical components. Seasonal Trends – Does weather ambiently impact your production environment or your demand for product? After working with us for a while, we can help spot seasonal trends that impact your supplies on hand and make recommendations for minimizing the impact of seasonal swings on your coding operation supplies. If you tend to do preventive maintenance work on a seasonal basis, we take this into consideration to make sure you are prepared with the proper supplies on hand. Print-per-consumable – The unique composition of your print message or label format determines how many prints-per-bottle, prints-per-ribbon roll, or prints-per-printhead you will be able to squeeze out of your coding and labeling technology. When first working with Diagraph, we use this expectation to make an initial recommendation for the quantity of consumables you should order. Over time, we can review changes in your print message requirements to make an updated recommendation. Consumable Shelf Life – When working with fluid-based consumables, it is important to keep a close eye on how long a particular bottle or cartridge of ink or solvent will last while being stored. We take expected shelf life into consideration when developing a supply strategy to ensure consumable stock does not go to waste. Many of our customers prefer to opt-in to our annual supply strategy service to receive regular deliveries tailored to their production. Supplies are routinely sent at a specified interval utilizing this service and are eligible for special Diagraph Insider Predictability Discounts. Other customers with more seasonality to their business often enjoy a standing order arrangement that allows them to call in a pre-determined order on-demand. Both of these programs have their perks.
