"Private sector printers have traditionally had a strong partnership with GPO because the government gets quality work on time at a fair price from them," said Deborah Snider, division president of Government Print Management -- a division of e-LYNXX Corporation. "Even though GPO work to the private sector has been on the decline lately, GPO remains a very attractive market for printers. During tough economic times, printers of all sizes depend on GPO jobs. We are hoping that the trend that we have been seeing will be reversed as the government outsources more of its printing."
GPO is best developed as a dependable secondary market, Snider added. This is done by lowering prices to win GPO work to fill production gaps. Active GPO print suppliers increase their bottom line annual profitability from a national average of less than 3% to more than 14% when they bid low to consistently win work to fill downtime.
Snider said many of the top 50 GPO suppliers are clients of Government Print Management and benefit from the company's government print management expertise, extensive print jobs database and GPO bid services.
