Recent years have provided a stark reminder of a basic fact: businesses are only as strong as their supply chains. Widespread blockages, scarcity, and resource shortages have placed huge strain on lean, just-in-time global supply chains, risking not only business operations but the stability of entire economies.
In order to strengthen their supply chains, pre-empt possible risks, and bolster business resilience, mature procurement functions are leveraging Supplier Collaboration and Innovation principles. Through working closely with suppliers to develop deep, mutually-beneficial customer of choice relationships, businesses can more effectively meet supply challenges, secure priority access to goods and services in times of shortage, and leverage supplier innovation to transform leverage, bottleneck, and strategic supply categories.
With Vizibl, smart enterprises are able to develop those customer of choice relationships with suppliers systematically, and at scale.
Leverage your supplier relationships to pre-empt risk, increase resilience, and gain priority access to supplier capacity by developing close “customer of choice” relationships through supplier collaboration.
Priority access to scarce capacity
Build strong, mutually valuable supplier relationships, grounded in shared vision & objectives, and enjoy priority access to strategic suppliers granted by “customer of choice” status.
Improved risk mitigation
Maintain supply and secure business continuity by pro-actively pre-empting and mitigating risk in your most business-critical relationships through increased visibility and accountability.
Agility in times of crisis
Quickly respond to crises with key suppliers and seize new opportunities where others can’t by actioning pre-prepared continuity plans, and quickly requesting supplier expertise & resources.
