Sceptical about buying on value? Check out the facts …

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Carl Sagan

Did you know the unit price of a product or service may only account for about 10% of the total costs. To reduce the remaining 90% you need to look at the total costs for your business. Todd Snelgrove from SKF Global is a world leader in value and total cost of ownership (TCO). We asked Todd, what makes value a better alternative? What easy steps you could take towards buying on value?

From this video you can see that scepticism is a valid reaction. However, if you can be open minded to the facts and the costs for your business and how to reduce these, buying on value is more profitable.
