In the fight to increase market share, organizations need to come up with innovation in their products/services or upgrade it by adding new features in order to satiate the changing consumer preferences. To make this a reality organizations are dependent on their suppliers to supply the essential raw materials/services.

Suppliers have a direct impact on an organization’s product/service quality, competitiveness and also product innovation. This mandates maintaining a good relationship with the suppliers for an overall organizational perspective. For majority of the organizations, selecting a supplier is a strategic step which would not only generate cost efficiency but also help the company grow.

Maintaining a good supplier relationship can offer the following benefits to an organization;

  • Avoiding costly & potentially devastating supply disruption.
  • Reducing risk towards scenarios like; defects /environmental problem/safety issues etc.
  • Implementing corrective actions before the problem becomes a big headache or hits the bottom line.
