Supplier relationship management is an important subprocess of supply chain management. It comprises the identification of potential suppliers, their evaluation, and the management of the ordering process and of deliveries. The objective of this process is to reach the highest possible level of automation. SAP NetWeaver and the implementation of SAP BI open up new ways of improving a company's supplier management and procurement processes.
In order to create a preferred supplier basis, an initial supplier screening process is carried out during which we will work with you to identify those suppliers that can provide the required procurement object. The subsequent supplier evaluation then looks at all relevant aspects of the economic, ecological, qualitative, and technical performance of the suppliers.
In order to integrate the selected supplier over the long term, the integration has to undergo continuous development and should be carried out without media discontinuities. Doing so will ensure a continuous improvement in supplier performance. The objective of supplier controlling and auditing is to inspect incoming goods and to monitor the achievement of targets for all activities performed by the suppliers and service providers.
