Hunt for Australian dollar savings

TaskmasterWith the Australian dollar shooting towards 29-year highs, it’s time for entrepreneurs to renew their efforts to unlock savings using the currency.

 

The savings could be everywhere – equipment, raw materials, software and technology that can be ordered from overseas are probably the really big ticket items.

 

But there could be plenty of smaller savings – if you know where to look.

 

So get your team together and have an Australian dollar brainstorm.

 

  • Get the IT team to think about what they could order from overseas.
  • Ask the purchasing department to look at supply contracts. If cheaper suppliers can’t be found, at least put some pressure on suppliers you know buy from overseas to give you a better deal.
  • Ask your office manager to look at stationery savings. A year’s supply of pens may well be cheaper from the US.
  • If you’ve been planning some staff training, buy the materials from overseas.
  • If you’ve been hoping to upgrade some of your promotion materials, why not ask a US supplier for a quote.

 

I bet plenty of your staff are shopping overseas already and will have some great ideas.

 

Get it done – today!
