Our goal at Bureau Works is to manage the fine balance between offering our clients the most competitive prices possible and paying our Supply Chain Vendors across the globe fair wages.
That is harder to manage than it may seem. Our Global Supply Chain means that vendors are operating from regions that may experience drastic changes in currency exchange, social-economic policies and other macroeconomic drivers that impact our cost directly.
While we do our best to maintain pricing over the years by introducing more technological efficiencies we are subject to changes in pricing for specific components. Some components do go down but our clients typically do not notice that. ;) It's the increases that pop-up.
The best way to avoid any unexpected changes in pricing is to talk to our Sales team to structure an MSA that includes pricing agreement valid for a certain period of time. This will ensure that your pricing remains untouched regardless of changes to our Supply Chain over that period.
We are also sensitive to the idea that regardless of having or not a contract in place, we do not like the idea of negatively surprising our clients. That is why if you encounter an unexpected change in our pricing we will work with you to find a solution that is agreeable for your needs. Whether that means extending the previous pricing for a certain period of time or adding discounts to projects for a certain period of time, we treasure each and every client relationship we have and will always do our best to keep you happy while respecting our need to pay our Supply Chain on-time and with wages that are compatible with their geo-specific economic framework.
