Transforming and optimizing the supply base

Suppliers are critical to the modern organization, often delivering services that help make firms not only more productive but also more profitable. In this wider context, cost is a factor that sits alongside others like speed, quality, and innovation. Choosing the right suppliers for business needs becomes vital, as is engaging them on the right terms.
