Understanding key issues
Managing the sourcing and contracting of vendors in a decentralised way is inefficient and can lead to higher costs and longer timelines.
A need to save time can make it easy to fall into a routine of renewing contracts without going back out to market or asking the supplier for better services.
Internal teams experience only what affects their organisation, which can narrow the due diligence processes for working with new vendors, running the risk of missing critical information.
How our Vendor Management Services can help you
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Centralised Vendor Management
Manage all vendors, new and existing, in one place, with one contact responsible for the relationships. This gives a holistic view over your supplier system, improving visibility and enabling better interactions between supplied services and technology.
Risk mitigation of contracts and suppliers is enabled through increased visibility providing insight to support better understanding and planning.
Contract management and optimisation reviews can become continuous. Everything is assessed in the whole IT vendor ecosystem to enable the best, ‘big picture’ decisions.
Engaging stakeholders across your organisation can be difficult when they have their own focuses and concerns. Centralising Vendor Management encourages stakeholders to come together.
Sourcing for success
Much like when hiring new employees, your organisation deserves to work with suppliers of services and technologies that will increase your success, only. Achieving this is eased by working with an expert Vendor Manager such as Advanced as we lean on our experience and expertise in the market to source and vet suppliers.
Knowing where you want to be enables you to select whom you need to work with to get there. A specialist Vendor Manager can support you in this, aligning resources to your strategy.
Your Vendor Manager can act as an advocate for your organisation in supplier meetings, identifying successes, assessing quality and ensuring performance.
