The success of BPA's print management solution is underpinned by our accredited print panel consisting of a broad range of quality approved printers, located in Australia and offshore
The Print Panel
The panel process offers a wide variety of printing equipment suited to particular print jobs with varying capacities to meet deadlines. This provides clients with capability, capacity and flexibility - plus a certainty that their urgent print job will not sit on a production line waiting its turn at busy times like Christmas.
BPA's independent buying power delivers the best available market price. The panel competes for each print job, giving BPA the ability to secure their clients the best deal from the most suitable printer for the job in the timeframe required.
BPA's supply panel is comprised of a range of leading suppliers with a variety of equipment and capacities to provide digital, web, sheet fed printing and direct mail management. Click here for more information on our supply panel and supplier accreditation.
BPA's competitive bidding solution
BPA has its own proprietary e-procurement system called Chameleon. This sophisticated portal manages the competitive sourcing of product from our supplier panel.
Through detailed categorisation of the print panel, matching their capabilities to the required print and production type, the right group of printers competitively bid on every job to achieve the best available market price. Specifications are automatically emailed to print panel suppliers who then respond with their competitive quotes. All responses are reviewed by the Account Manager who then forwards the quote to the Client detailing the lowest print cost within the required delivery timeline.
All jobs are quoted on BPA's online Chameleon system, enabling fast turnaround. Most quotes are submitted back to clients within 10 business hours of briefing, often faster. If the job is more complex a quote can take longer to ensure we obtain the best available price.
