Sometimes people think they will save money by using cheaper supplies. If cheaper means less expensive but of the same quality, they will be usually right. If cheaper means of a lesser quality, they will have to address a few other issues.
If their customers perceive the products as cheaper, they will either want to pay less for them products or they might look elsewhere to find a higher quality product.
If cheaper means things break more often, the cost of repairs might more than offset the cheaper costs and in the long run end up costing more.
Be careful of going with cheaper if it also means “lesser quality” frequently it ends up costing more in the long run.
Have a great day!
