5 Reasons Why Companies Need Supplier Quality Management

Dec 30, 2019

In today’s complex and fast-paced business environment, establishing a robust supplier quality management system is not only desirable but critical for sustaining compliance and achieving process excellence. Companies must cultivate cordial relationships with global suppliers and build a supplier quality management procedure with well-defined metrics around quality and compliance. However, firms are mostly dealing with increasing regulatory oversight, intense competition, and market fluctuations. Managing supplier quality, therefore, takes a secondary position among organizations. They find it time-consuming and complicated to analyze data, uncover supplier insights, and gain a clear understanding of supplier capabilities. This results in data inconsistencies and deterioration of supplier performances.

Benefits of Supplier Quality Management 

Minimizes risks 

Extended supply chains, outsourcing, and globalization accompany a significant amount of risk. These risks are usually related to quality, safety, business continuity, cost volatility, supply disruption, non-compliance, and many more. Having an effective supplier quality management process allows companies to effectively audit the supply chain and identify each specific risk. This helps businesses to reduce risks and avoid potential costly fallout.

Improves contract management and supplier relationships

For businesses to gain ground, it is crucial for companies to reduce costs, streamline contract management, protect brand reputation, and achieve long term profitability. The process becomes much easier when tasks such as supplier prequalification, supplier audits, vendor management, insurance monitoring, and analytics are taken care of. With a robust supplier management process, companies can easily maintain good relationships with suppliers while carrying supplier quality audits regularly. They can easily improve and grow a cross-beneficial business relationship.

Enhances procurement decisions 

Most procurement decisions are under immense pressure to find, qualify, monitor, and manage suppliers while lowering the costs of doing so. With supplier quality management, CPOs can make informed procurement decisions by mitigating supplier risk through communication, evaluation, selection, and monitoring services. They can gain unprecedented visibility into safety statistics risk profiles and historical data. Moreover, improving supplier quality management can enhance the procurement process and reduce the lead time apart from maximizing data quality on the entire supply chain.

Meets compliance requirements 

Businesses usually have to maintain compliance with, country-specific regulations, industry standards and regulations, corporate policies and standards. Working with a huge number of suppliers makes it difficult for companies to align with compliance standards. However, potential costs, disruptions, and damages can be avoided when a company is proactive in its approach to supplier compliance and supplier quality management.

Fosters sustainable performance 

While most companies have strategies in place to manage health, safety, behaviors within the organization, they fail to ensure the same with suppliers, contractors, and vendors. Supplier quality management actively fosters an aligned culture of health and safety through contractor prequalification, document management, auditing, employee-level qualification and training, business intelligence, and insurance verification.
