Suppliers / Vendors
Yes, vendor compliance is difficult and can be costly, but when implemented thoughtfully it does not have to be either one of those.
In fact the upgrades to technology and changes to operations can have some very useful efficiency benefits of their own.
I have been an advocate for vendor companies in various industries (e.g. retail, pharmaceutical, marine, electronics, publishing, government) with the vast majority of my experience in U.S. retail, the likely toughest and most complex industry of them all worldwide when it comes to vendor compliance.
I have a detailed understanding of data and a comprehensive perspective of business operations. I know how to transform data into meaningful information and use it competitively. I have a track record with my clients of figuring out how to get more functionality out of their enterprise resource planning (ERP) software than their software vendors can.
Key Causes of
Supplier / Vendor Disruption:
x Not having executive management support for vendor compliance.
x Viewing vendor compliance as a cost, not as an investment.
x Not leveraging vendor compliance as a competitive advantage.
x Not leveraging vendor compliance initiatives for internal benefits.
x Not providing education and training for employees.
x Not understanding that “tradition is history” with regards to how things were done before in selling to top-level customers in the industry.
