What is Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) ?

In this age of cut-throat market competition, every organization is trying new methods to reach a wider audience. Sourcing is a viable strategy for organizations as it enables them to lower their production costs. For long-term gains, companies need to build positive relationships with the suppliers. Supplier relationship management (SRM) is a process of strategically managing all the interactions with all the suppliers the organization is dealing with to maximize the value and reduce risk of failure. The main goal of SRM is to improve business processes and relationship between the supplier and the organizations.

STRATEGIES FOR BUILDING A POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SUPPLIERS


Suppliers are more than vendors

Many marketers tend to think that suppliers are just vendors. This is not the case. Organizations should consider suppliers as their partners and this relationship is more than financial transactions. It is grounded on trust and loyalty. Companies should try to make suppliers feel that they are a part of businesses.

Marketers should assess the risks before dealing with a supplier. If a company has a complex supply chain, it is of utmost importance. Marketers should ask suppliers about the experiences of their previous works, years of operation, areas of expertise, etc. In this way, organizations can get a fair idea about the supplier’s services. With the help of sourcing consultants, marketers can get in touch with the suppliers suited to their needs.
