Why Should You Invest in Supplier Relationship Management?

Our experience with clients has shown that businesses often focus on fostering customer loyalty. They tend to ignore the fact that establishing relationships with suppliers and managing them is equally important. The rise in the number of suppliers and increasing complexity of supply chains is making imperative for businesses to invest in supplier relationship management.

This article will help you understand how supplier relationship management can reduce the number of RFQ situations and speed delivery schedules dramatically. Also, it can help companies track the operational measures mutually agreed with tier 1 suppliers, consolidate suppliers, and maximize the use of inventory by determining appropriate sourcing strategies.
