1:50 PM Panel: Get The Cost Out!: Reducing Cost When Supplier Rates Have Been Fully Exploited

You think about it everyday - how can I increase the value I get from key suppliers? In this panel, go beyond the traditional rate discussion and learn how partnering with your strategic suppliers to reduce their cost instead of reduce their margins can have major benefit for the bottom line. Key topics include:

  • Where is the waste in supplier processes that could be eliminated? 
  • What reporting do you require of your suppliers and how effectively is it used? Reducing the reporting requirements and/or changing the frequency can take cost out. 
  • SLAs requiring immediate delivery of products make the supplier stock a full inventory - reduce the SLA to only key products, reducing inventory requirements.
  • Examine your contracting requirements to see what Ts and Cs could be increasing your supplier’s costs – see what could be modified to take cost out!
