Supplier Management Solutions
How do you manage quality, service level, compliance, safety, risk, brand exposure and performance in your supply chain? Sometimes the origin of risk is outside your organisation. Is it outside your control? Do your suppliers use suppliers?
Complex supply chains are a common feature of the globalised economy. Businesses can rely on hundreds of suppliers and subcontractors in order to deliver their products and services. To maintain compliance with standards and regulations, to effectively model and manage risk, to ensure the safety of staff, the public and the environment, and to safeguard brand and reputation it is essential that quality, service level, compliance, risk and performance management systems be extended out to cover the supply chain.

Immediate Visibility of Supplier Quality, Performance and Compliance
The Supplier Management solution provides a central database for all supplier information. Features include a vendor database covering all details and quality records showing historical performance in terms of delivery failures, warranty claims, returns, complaints and reviews.
A register of approved suppliers shows those under consideration and those deemed unsuitable. Supplier concerns can be raised and captured within the module, providing immediate visibility of supplier performance. This in turn allows data to be analysed to drive supplier improvement, allowing you to identify repeat failures, root cause and fault categorisation.
This information is made available to the purchasing function to ensure inappropriate vendors are not used. This prevents costly mistakes and places accountability correctly with the actual source of the problem.
By working with the one database for suppliers, our staff are now raising supplier concerns or comments in the same way no matter the site they’re based at. The Supplier module provides immediate visibility of Supplier performance which in turn allows for data to be analysed helping drive Supplier improvement. We regularly meet with our suppliers, and this information is invaluable for those meetings.
