Supplier Relationship Management

Building Strong
Supplier Relationships

Business-to-business vendor and buyer relationships tend to be complex because they typically involve a number of stakeholders in the buying organisation who will make collective decisions.

vendors and buyers have competing goals, differing needs, risks and opinions

These differences can, if the relationship is not properly managed, cause conflict, low productivity through protracted dispute resolution, unprofitable vendor margins necessary to sustain the relationship and in the worst case scenario, a complete breakdown in the relationship and even litigation.

Our diverse and comprehensive supply chain means we can source suppliers with the right capabilities and innovation, capacity and experience for each client. And proactively manage the relationship with them, on your behalf, going forward.

Outsourced Supplier Relationship Management

By outsourcing non-core competencies, UK businesses are achieving security of supply, corporate social responsibility improvements, and on-going cost savings. Strategic partnerships are at the top of the corporate agenda of many organisations and Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) is seen as one of the few remaining procurement topics that can still make a significant difference.

However, many organisations encounter difficulties in initiating, developing and managing these relationships/ partnerships.

Many UK businesses cite the most important SRM objectives as leveraging supplier capabilities, realising supplier innovation, delivering cost savings and reducing supply risk exposure. Rely on Procuright to accomplish your goals with proactive outsourced supplier relationship management.
