Supplier-centric procurement

Drive supplier performance and take relationships to a new level while fostering innovation and mitigating risk.

The future of procurement

Supplier centricity focuses on integrated relationships. Today’s supplier interactions are largely tactical and lack any real insight or platform integration. That’s why the future of procurement is dependent on creating a new operating model to support supplier centricity; one which drives supplier performance and relationships to a new level while fostering innovation and mitigating risk.

This model is one where suppliers will:

  • have access to key information to help build robust solutions 
  • integrate into your environment though supplier-managed store fronts and master data portals
  • contribute to business, product, and category innovation
  • receive feedback through sentiment, community feedback and traditional performance metrics
  • self-manage purchasing transactions through payment.
Do your suppliers want to work with you? Being a customer of choice can help you win in the marketplace.
