02 Apr Collaborative supplier management, how to efficiently find the right partner
As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to grow and evolve, companies need to ensure operational continuity by setting clear procedures to improve the most critical issues. Exploiting technological platforms to mitigate the impacts on the upstream Supply Chain processes is the first step towards a successful supplier collaboration, which allows companies to keep supply breakdown under control, and optimise relationships, timing and costs.
Finding alternative suppliers becomes crucial to both satisfy quality and geographical criteria while considering the current scenario. Digital tools can help you increase collaboration with your suppliers, and easily collect data and documents to make short-term responses.
