Oversight and management of the entire supply chain is essential to controlling costs and by extending the prices of your goods and services. Supply chain is important whether you manufacture a product or provide a service. Supply management entails:

  • Identifying, sourcing, and procuring a resource that is essential to your ongoing operations.
  • Negotiating contracts that are favorable to your company.
  • Maintaining relationships with suppliers, verifying that contracts are being followed, and holding suppliers accountable for poor performance.

Effectively managing your suppliers and vendors directly affects the numbers on your financial statements and annual reports such as cost of goods sold, net margin, and cash flow. In addition, managing your suppliers also entails a degree of risk management when a supplier is unable to fulfill their obligation to deliver a key component.

Collecting and maintaining accurate, complete, up-to-date information is critical to maintaining a clear picture of current and potential suppliers, while ongoing two-way communication is vital for good relationships. This process is greatly helped when you have a comprehensive supplier management platform.
